Golden State Warriors' Steph Curry to miss at least 3 weeks

As you can see, the rest of Golden State's All-Stars, as well as Zaza Pachulia and the team as a whole, shoot worse from the field when Curry isn't on the court, and also average fewer points per 100 possessions when Curry is absent.

The Warriors announced after the game that they had initially diagnosed Curry with a sprained MCL in his left knee, but the full extent of the injury would not be known until he undergoes an MRI on Saturday.

After the disappointment that Steph Curry will now miss at least the next three weeks for the Golden State Warriors, there is some good news for the team looking ahead into next week as two of their big four could be back on the court by then. He appeared to have fully recovered from that injury, scoring 29 points in 25 minutes against the Hawks before teammate JaVale McGee fell back onto his left leg.

"It is kind of a unusual cruel twist of fate", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said of Curry's latest injury, which just adds to the woes for the beat-up Warriors. "So we'll see what happens and we'll keep our fingers crossed". Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Durant himself have all suffered injuries and missed time during the second half of the season. Kerr said Durant could be back for Tuesday or Thursday's games.

The catch being, of course, that Curry is ready in time for a potential Western Conference Final showdown.

Curry had already been absent from the Warriors lineup the previous six games due to an ankle injury, with Golden State going just 2-4 in his absence despite a wealth of other All-Stars on their roster.
