On Wednesday night, the Philadelphia 76ers and Minnesota Timberwolves stole NBA headlines after a brawl broke out between the two teams.
However, the biggest news of the night came from the West coast.
Golden State Warriors star point guard Steph Curry fell awkwardly during the team’s game against the Phoenix Suns. Initially feared to be a wrist injury, the Warriors later announced Curry suffered a broken left hand.
While it’s not his shooting hand, he’ll still miss a few months as he recovers from the injury.
On Thursday afternoon, Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James showed his support for Curry with a short message on Twitter. “Speedy and healthy recovery brother!!!” James said to Curry.
@StephenCurry30 Speedy and healthy recovery brother!!! 🙏🏾

No Kevin Durant, no Klay Thompson and no Steph Curry leaves the Warriors with Draymond Green and newcomer D’Angelo Russell as the best weapons.
Golden State went from being the favorite to win the NBA title last year to a lottery team this year. It’s heartbreaking for Warriors fans, but the reality is Golden State is playing for a top pick in the 2020 NBA draft at this point.
