Touched in the left shoulder, Stephen Curry will be out for several weeks, his Golden State franchise announced on Thursday.
Golden State will have to spend the holidays without its superstar point guard Stephen Curry! The four-time NBA champion suffered a left shoulder injury Wednesday in Golden State’s 125-119 loss to Indiana, and his franchise has said he will be out for “several weeks.” The MRI showed that Curry (34) suffered from a subluxation, specify the Warriors, and a return date will be announced in the coming days.

The Warriors have also lost four of their last five games. Stephen Curry is averaging 30 points, 6.6 rebounds and 6.8 assists in 34 minutes and 26 games played this season. He has already missed three games this season (twice in New Orleans and Utah), and the Californians have lost them all. Steve Kerr, the Warriors coach, however, was not too worried:
“The good news is that when Steph is back, there will still be a lot of games to play. It doesn’t feel like anyone is running away from the top of the Western Conference, and as long as we can stay within striking range, we feel good on our team when we’re healthy. “We will therefore have to try to take as little delay as possible during the next few weeks…
