Steph Curry's Injury Sends Warriors Spiraling

An already nightmarish evening took an even worse turn for the Warriors on Wednesday night.
After trailing the Phoenix Suns at home by more than 30 before halftime, Golden State saw Stephen Curry exit the game with an apparent left wrist injury. The two-time Kia MVP came up grimacing after being sandwiched between two Suns defenders on a drive to the rim. The team later confirmed Curry had suffered a broken hand.

Curry did not attempt his two free throws, and instead went immediately to the locker room for further evaluation. The Warriors guard finished the game with nine points, six assists and five rebounds in 21 minutes of action.

Curry had started the game hot, scoring seven points in the first three minutes. Then Phoenix ripped off an incredible 30-1 run, further emphasizing the defensive struggles with which Golden State has started the season. The Suns wound up winning 121-110, Golden State's third double-digit loss in less than a week.

Now the Warriors face an even crueler road than when the season began. With Kevin Durant now in Brooklyn and Klay Thompson recovering from a torn ACL, Golden State had already lost half its usual All-Star cast. The burden fell on Curry and Draymond Green to lead a team of newcomers, rookies and former G League standouts through a brutal Western Conference.

If Curry does indeed miss extended time, that burden now shifts to Green and D'Angelo Russell to carry a franchise that seemed all but unbeatable until this year's rash of injuries. As of early Thursday morning, Warriors GM Bob Meyers was uncertain as to Curry's recovery time, per Kerith Burke of NBC Sports Bay Area.
