Warriors star Stephen Curry suffered a left shoulder injury during Wednesday’s game in Indiana and and did not return, per Anthony Slater of The Athletic.
Head coach Steve Kerr told reporters that Curry will undergo an MRI on Thursday, via ESPN’s Kendra Andrews. Kerr added that the veteran guard was “in good spirits” after the game.
Curry went to the locker room late in the third quarter after trying to strip the ball away from Pacers big man Jalen Smith.
Curry was carrying the team on his back prior to getting injured, recording 38 points, seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one block in 30 minutes.
As Slater notes, the Golden State’s fourth-quarter rally came up short, losing by a score of 125-119. The Warriors are now 14-15, including 2-13 on the road, and face the Sixers in Philadelphia on Friday.
The two-time MVP and reigning Finals MVP is having one of his finest seasons at 34 years old, averaging 29.6 points, a career-high 6.6 rebounds, 6.8 assists and 1.0 steal on .497/.432/.911 shooting through 25 games (34.6 minutes). If Curry misses additional time, look for players like Donte DiVincenzo and Moses Moody to receive more minutes, while Jordan Poole and Draymond Green will handle more play-making responsibilities.
