Golden State Warriors run of bad luck continued on Wednesday night when guard Stephen Curry suffered a broken left hand after a hard fall during in a game against the Phoenix Suns.
General manager Bob Myers told ESPN that Curry will have an MRI and CT scan, and from there, the team will determine if he needs surgery and what his recovery timetable will be.
The 31-year old Curry is believed to have a fracture in the second metacarpal, the bone in the hand below the index finger.
“Obviously it’s been a tough start for us on many levels,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said after the game. “So we’re just trying to find our footing. And obviously this puts us in a tough spot. So we’ll assess it, and we’ll go from there.”
The Warriors are already playing without Klay Thompson who is recovering from an ACL injury in his left knee, and Kevon Looney who is dealing with a neuropathic condition that will keep him out for at least three more games.
