Fortunately for the Warriors, it’s not Curry’s shooting hand. The injury doesn’t seem serious as well, with Steph being able to return to the game.
The Warriors can ill-afford any injury to Curry in this series with the Rockets. Steph is the team’s heart and soul, and they need him in order to continue clicking and take down Houston.
Mike D’Antoni’s side brought the Dubs to a Game 7 in last year’s Western Conference Finals. They have a reloaded roster this 2018-19 campaign. Not to mention that all players, particularly Chris Paul, are healthy and ready to give the Bay Area team another crack.
Through seven games in the playoffs, prior to Game 2 with Houston, Curry is averaging 23.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.1 steals.
