Massive injury news in the NBA tonight, with scans confirming that Golden State Warriors’ point guard Steph Curry suffered a broken hand in the Warriors’ home loss to Phoenix.
Curry picked up the injury after crashing to the floor in a hard contest with Suns’ centre Aron Baynes and forward Kelly Oubre.
The initial diagnosis is a broken second metacarpal in his left hand, according to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne.
At the moment there is no timeline set for recovery, but there are fears Curry could be out for up to four months of the season and may only return around the All Star break.
I got more info from Bob Myers. He said Steph Curry will have a CT scan to determine if surgery is next the next step. A cast on Steph’s broken left hand could be an option too. Estimated time of recovery unknown right now.

This is awful news for a Warriors roster which has looked out of sorts and entirely mediocre through the first week of the season, and has fallen to a dismal 1-3 record after tonight’s loss.
Is the tank about to begin?
We’ll have to wait and see. In Curry’s absence, Draymond Green and the newly-acquired D’Angelo Russell will be forced to shoulder an immense offensive burden.
