Warriors' NBA Championship Odds Drop with Curry Injury

"There's no way he's playing the first round (of the playoffs)". No reason we can't come out and play really well down the stretch and be ready for the playoffs.

During the third quarter of Friday night's game between the Warriors and Hawks, McGee flew into the air attempting to block a shot and tumbled into Curry's left knee.

"Our team has been through a lot in the injury department". Klay Thompson (hand fracture), Draymond Green (pelvic contusion) and Kevin Durant (rib contusion) are all sidelined. "There's no way. I mean, he'll be re-evaluated in three weeks".

"It was a confusing one, because I didn't know exactly what it was", he said of the injury.

"I think [Kerr] was trying to be protective We certainly have that bias, I have that bias". Just over half of Warriors games have also finished under the O/U total.

"The doctors make the call for the most part", Lacob told San Francisco's 95.7 The Game. I would probably say that the Warriors would have the advantage, except for the fact that they are coming off of injuries. He may be ready.

On Sunday, Curry limped up a couple of stairs to the podium for his news conference but didn't need crutches, saying, "It's nice that I'm walking and not limited with crutches or anything like that, so that's a positive. Just try to do my job in the rehab process and get back as soon as I can".

"Hopefully, I prove what coach said was wrong and put myself in position to get back as soon as possible", Curry said, per ESPN. "Then maybe we get Steph back and see what happens". "We all go through individual things but at the end of the day, none of this is going to shake us from our ultimate goal of a championship".

"We gotta protect Steph from himself and make sure he's good and healthy". Golden State is of course, not as dominant without Curry but even Warriors coach Steve Kerr knows that they can win without him. The five-time All-Star is averaging 26.4 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 6.1 assists per game, and Golden State generates 14 more points per 100 possessions when he's on the court.

The Warriors are no strangers to their current predicament. It is not the first time he has suffered from such an injury as he experienced a Grade 1 MCL sprain against the Rockets during the first round of the 2016 playoffs that saw him miss four games and 15 days. That did not stop the Warriors from steamrolling their playoff competition.

"Kind of a odd, cruel twist of fate", coach Steve Kerr said. And then when KD came back, Finals MVP after missing six weeks.

The good news is, the Warriors will slowly regain the rest of their starting lineup over the next few weeks.

Curry overcame a slow start in his return, shooting 10 for 18.
