Warriors' Curry 'unlikely' to return this season

Stephen Curry Warriors

The Warriors announced last Friday that Steph Curry will undergo hand surgery and will not be playing for at least three months.

In an article that he published on the disappearance of the Warriors on Thursday, Ric Bucher of the Bleacher Report, told a source that the fracture of Curry's left hand was "worse than one would originally thought "and that she would probably keep the MVP from the National Basketball Association twice absent the rest of the year". A short time after, Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle was told by a Golden State source that Bucher's report is false and that the fracture was no worse than anticipated. Since the injury is to Curry's hand and not an area where injuries are more common (i.e. ankle, knee), Payne is unsure when Curry will be able to return to the court. "Those first few weeks are going to be critical in just how the movement comes back in the wrist and how the hand responds to the activity".

Golden State plays Friday night at Minnesota.

Bucher later clarified his report. Among other problems, they lost Kevin Durant in free agency and Klay Thompson is out of season due to an ACL tear suffered in the Finals.

The initial timeline released by the Warriors was that after three months, there would be an update.
