The Golden State Warriors’ injury situation has gone from bad to disastrous in a matter of a few games. The team lost Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson in last season’s playoffs.
Even without those two, optimism remained high entering the 2019-20 season. After all, Steph Curry and his sidekick Draymond Green were back to try and lead the team to another NBA Finals. Not to mention, the team signed All-Star guard D’Angelo Russell in the off-season.
But Curry’s broken hand has shattered the hopes of all Warriors fans.
Early speculation indicated the star guard would return later this year. But according to a new report, it appears the three-point specialist will be out for the rest of the season.
It is reportedly “unlikely” that Steph Curry will play again this season, per @RicBucher.

If this news holds true, the Warriors’ playoff hopes have gone from slim to none. What an unfortunate series of events for an organization that has dominated the basketball world for the past several years.
It looks like this may turn into a tanking season for Golden State. Without Curry or Thompson, it’ll be difficult for the team to muster up many wins.
Next season, the team expects both star guards to be healthy. This may be a down year, but the Warriors will be a dangerous Western Conference team once again next season.
