Stephen Curry injured as MRI is scheduled

Curry took a shot to the knee, colliding with McKinley Wright, that left him unable to return to Saturday’s win over the Dallas Mavericks. This happened with 2:01 to go in the third quarter, Curry was playing defense against Wright.

When Curry left the game, he immediately had an x-ray – which showed negative. Per the Warriors, he is scheduled for an MRI next.

While he was limping back to the locker room, Curry did so under his own power. Two team trainers examined him on the bench and went back to the locker room with him.

It should be noted that the left knee he injured against the Mavericks is the same knee that he hurt on Thursday against the Denver Nuggets. Per Golden State’s head coach Steve Kerr, he wasn’t too sure if that collision two nights ago impacted this injury in any way.

“Any time a guy gets an MRI, there’s a concern level,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “We’ll just have to wait and see the results. … This has happened many, many times over the years. So fingers crossed he’s OK.” (ESPN)

The Warriors are 6-5 without Stephen Curry this season, due to a left shoulder subluxation, so if they are without their franchise player then they’ll be prepared to win games without him.

“If he’s out, then we move forward and we do have some games to look at, some game film to look at,” Kerr said. “We’ll be ready, regardless.”

Here is the play where Stephen Curry got injured:
