Steph Curry Suffers Broken Hand, Warriors Fall against Suns
SAN FRANCISCO -- Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry suffered a broken left hand after a hard fall in Wednesday's 121-110 loss to the Phoenix Suns.
General manager Bob Myers told ESPN that Curry will have an MRI and CT scan, and from there, the team will determine if he needs surgery and what his recovery timetable will be.
ESPN's Ramona Shelburne reported that Curry, 31, has a fracture in the second metacarpal, the bone in the hand below the index finger.
For a Warriors group already playing without Klay Thompson, who is recovering from an ACL injury in his left knee, and Kevon Looney, who is dealing with a neuropathic condition that will keep him out for at least three more games, Curry's setback was a nightmare scenario for a team that is 1-3 and has had major issues on the defensive end.
The injury occurred with 8 minutes, 31 seconds left in the third quarter when Curry drove to the rim and collided with Suns big man Aron Baynes, who attempted to take a charge and ended up falling on top of Curry's hand.
