Earlier this week, the Golden State Warriors received devastating news when star point guard Steph Curry suffered a broken left hand.
In a season that started with an injured Klay Thompson on the bench and Kevin Durant out of town, the Warriors were hoping Curry could carry the team to the playoffs. Unfortunately, with Curry out, Golden State’s playoff hopes are dashed.
On Friday afternoon, the Warriors released a statement updating Curry’s status.
The team revealed Curry underwent surgery on Friday morning and he’s expected to miss significant time. Golden State revealed the team will re-evaluate his status in three months.

Three months without arguably the best point guard in the NBA won’t be kind to the Warriors. After jumping out to a 1-3 start, Golden State is more likely to land in the lottery than in the playoffs.
The Warriors entered each of the past five seasons as favorites for the NBA title, but that obviously changes with all of the injuries.
Golden State traded for D’Angelo Russell this offseason. The Warriors need him to step up this season if they want to find wins.
Next up for Golden State is a home contest against the San Antonio Spurs.
Stay tuned for the latest on Curry.
