Stephen Curry expected to miss at least three months following hand surgery
The Golden State Warriors have gotten off to a rough start this season, and things are likely going to get even worse in the wake of Stephen Curry’s hand injury.
Curry underwent surgery to repair a broken left hand on Friday, and Marc Stein of the New York Times reports that he will be sidelined for at least three months.

Curry will be re-evaluated to see where he is at in three months, which means the Warriors are going to be without him until at least the beginning of February. He broke his hand in Wednesday’s game against the Phoenix Suns when he took a nasty fall while driving to the basket.
Things have truly gone from bad to worse for Golden State since the end of last season. They were already without Klay Thompson, who is expected to miss the entire season while recovering from a torn ACL. They also lost Kevin Durant in free agency, so it is now up to Draymond Green and D’Angelo Russell to try to keep them afloat.
It seemed farfetched to think the Warriors wouldn’t make the playoffs even without Thompson and Durant, but that now looks like a legitimate possibility.
