Now that there is an update on Stephen Curry, the Golden State Warriors have no choice but to prepare for life without their top scorer. Klay Thompson talked to the media about the situation for the first time since the injury on Friday after practice.
Thompson told ClutchPoints, “We’ll have to take up the burden and let Steph (Curry) get healed”. “Having him when the games are on the line in the playoffs is the most essential thing.”
Curry was forced to leave the game after injuring his left foot against the Boston Celtics. Curry received an MRI following the Warriors’ defeat to the Celtics on Friday, according to the Warriors. His left foot was found to have a sprained ligament, and he will be checked again in two weeks.

Curry’s absence is a major concern for the Warriors. The star is averaging 25.5 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 6.3 assists per game this season. His presence alone makes things simpler for his teammates on the floor.
Thompson stated, “He averages a lot of points”. “So we simply have to chip in and work together as a team.” No one will be able to achieve what he can alone. As a result, working together is the way to proceed.”
Draymond Green felt a pain in his calf during that evening’s pre-game warmup. While everyone in the room was fascinated with every Thompson move and shot — make or miss.
His stamina was abruptly drained. Green was really battling with a disc issue in his lower back at the time. This popped up at the worst possible time. The Warriors immediately fouled following the tip-off, lulling the ecstatic audience into a trance.
It lasted exactly five quarters and eight minutes. Curry departed the game in the second quarter with a left foot injury after Marcus Smart rolled upon him while trying to recover a loose ball in Wednesday night’s 110-88 defeat to the Boston Celtics.
Injuries are a part of the game, but the synchronicity of all of these injuries is cosmically cruel. Congratulations to all who were in attendance for Monday night’s triumph over the Washington Wizards. You won the lottery and have been watching the only game involving Steph Curry, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson since 2019.
Curry is sidelined “indefinitely,” according to Shams Charania of The Athletic. The regular season finishes on April 10. The Warriors are hopeful that he will be able to return for the playoffs. Which begins in approximately a month, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
