Stephen Curry Injury Update
With the news that Stephen Curry has a sprained MCL and will be reevaluated in two weeks, this will likely shake up many predictions, assumptions and outcome of this year’s NBA Playoffs. Our writers at FanPicks put this article together to have more insights and implications on the Stephen Curry Injury Update situation.
Earlier today, the news broke out after Stephen Curry’s MRI that he would be unavailable for the next 2 weeks on the court. This is not a small story. Actually, it’s quite a shocker while Warriors’ fans and many NBA playoffs viewers would’ve loved to see him go 100% as the Warriors continue their march towards history.
Curry the league’s current MVP and best player is a victim of those ill-timed injuries that other top players like Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Garnett, Kyrie Irving and dozens of other huge names whose injuries clearly titled championship odds of their teams.
If this injury is prolonged, he will likely be less than a 100% on his return and facing teams like the Thunder or the Spurs will put their championship odds in serious jeopardy.
Many people may blame their physical fatigue in their quest to 73 regular season wins but in other circumstances, good for them and good call from Steve Kerr to rest his players for the playoffs like Gregg Popovich.
In this situation, sadly, injury prevention was actually not able to play a factor in this scary slip. A matter fact, it was surprising how so many people around the league, fans and his own players obviously, worried about Curry’s health.
No one wanted and wished to see this but this is what high level competition is about. The adversity and relentlessness of the Warriors will be tested from now on and Draymond Green will have to carry the team with some help from Klay Thompson and the solid Warriors’ core.
