Curry Rolled his ankle in the fourth quarter on Monday against the New Orleans Pelicans after becoming the youngest player to reach 2,000 field goals of 3 points. The Warriors' star point guard was able to get off the ground by his own power, but it still did not look good.
This is the same right ankle on which Curry had previously had surgery, which amplified the concern between the fans and the organization.
However, it seems that after a few weeks of rest, Curry can be fine.
Will the Warriors be without Curry?
They have enough All-Stars on hand without Curry and should have enough chemistry together to keep the strong. While it is true, it is still difficult to say what effect the loss of its offensive axis will have.
Curry only missed three games for the Warriors last season. In those games, the team went 2-1 and were beaten by 22 in their only loss to the Spurs. This will be the first significant leg that the Warriors have missed Curry since signing Kevin Durant, but they should be fine.
Should we worry about Curry in the future?
His ankle injuries have had problems in the past, but the Warriors and Curry have been good at being preventative and maintaining good health over the past few years, apart from that stretch in the 2016-17 postseason where he injured his ankle and, finally, your MCL.
Does that necessarily mean something? Probably not. Sometimes health only comes down to silly luck. Injuries sometimes happen, and you have to deal with them as best you can. By leaving Curry aside for the next few weeks, the Warriors are doing everything they can to handle the situation. We'll see how it works as the season progresses.
