Stephen Curry suffered a broken left hand following a hard fall during the Golden State Warriors’ 121-110 loss to the Phoenix Suns, Wednesday night, inside the Chase Center in San Francisco.
“Obviously, it’s been a tough start for us on many levels,” Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr said. “So we’re just trying to find our footing. And this puts us in a tough spot. So we’ll assess it, and we’ll go from there.”
The injury to his hand occurred midway through the third quarter when Curry drove to the basket and collided with Suns’ center, Aron Baynes, —who fell on top of Curry’s hand. According to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, Curry has a fracture in his second metacarpal — a bone in the hand below the index finger.
It has been a rough start to what Kerr has been calling “The New Reality” for the Golden State Warriors. In addition to Curry, the Warriors are already playing with Klay Thompson, who is recovering from an ACL injury in his left knee. As well as Kevon Looney, who is dealing with a neuropathic condition.
“It’s hard,” Warriors All-Star forward Draymond Green said. “Makes things even harder. But just got to keep playing and trying to figure it out. I just wish we got one practice with our team. One practice. We didn’t even get one practice. Not a single one.”
The Warriors will return to the court on Wednesday night, against the San Antonio Spurs in San Francisco.
