GOLDEN STATE — Golden State Warriors star guard Steph Curry has suffered a broken left hand in their home defeat against the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday, 30 October 2019.
With about 8 minutes left in the third quarter, Curry fell awkwardly his left hand to the floor and Baynes landed on top of him.
Curry drew a foul on the play but did not shoot the free throws as he went straight to the locker room.
The 121-110 loss of Warriors to the Suns is their third defeat from its opening four games and the Bay Area team now has a 1-3 record to start NBA the season.
Curry, before he broke his left hand, had nine points on 3-of-11 shooting. He came into the game averaging 24 points through three games on 43.6% shooting overall and 26.7% from 3-point range.
Curry was twice named NBA’s Most Valuable Player (MVP), has led the Warriors to five straight NBA finals.
He was averaging 24 points, 6.7 assists and five rebounds in their past three games this season before his injury.
The Warriors didn’t offer a specific timetable after Curry broke his hand.
Bob Myers, the Golden State president of basketball operations, told in an ESPN interview that Curry will have an MRI and CT scan on his hand. The Warriors will then decide if surgery is necessary. (Lloyd Tagbago/IAMIGO/CNS)
