"No Way" Steph Curry Plays In NBA Playoffs First Round

Steph Curry hobbles off the court with an injury.

Steph Curry is currently sidelined with a knee injury. The Golden State Warriors star point guard suffered an MCL sprain earlier this week.

The timeline for Curry's injury is supposed to be three to six weeks, according to various reports.

A return in three weeks would allow Curry to play in the first round of the NBA Playoffs. That's not going to happen, though.

Golden State head coach Steve Kerr said today that there's "no way" Curry returns in time to play in the opening round.

Here's his full comment:

Losing Curry is obviously a blow, but Golden State should still be just fine for the first round.

As long as the Warriors have a healthy Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green (all of whom have been battling various injuries and illnesses lately), they'll get past the No. 7 seed (which is currently the Timberwolves).

Golden State could then see No. 3 seed Portland in the second round and No. 1 seed Houston in the conference finals. Getting Curry back in time for those series is significantly more important.
