Report: Steph Curry playing sick in Game 2
Steph Curry apparently was not at full strength for the Golden State Warriors in Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday against the Toronto Raptors.
Curry got off to a slow start, shooting 0-for-3 to begin the game. Towards the end of the first quarter, ABC reporter Doris Burke spoke about Curry’s status.
“I don’t really get the sense he’s feeling particularly well. He made it known a little bit pregame,” Burke said.
Burke further reported that Curry consumed some energy gels and was being checked on regularly by the team’s trainer. Despite Burke’s report, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr apparently tried to brush things aside by saying Curry was fine.
“I have no idea,” Kerr said in an interview between quarters with Burke when asked about Curry walking off the court with the trainer.
Burke insisted Curry’s status throughout the game was something to watch.
We’ve already seen one star player receive criticism for the way he composed himself while playing sick in the playoffs. The reaction to how Curry’s status is handled will be something to watch.
