Stephen Curry Injury: Know why the Greatest Shooter of All-Time left Warriors’ win against Mavericks early?

Stephen Curry

Stephen Curry exited his team’s Saturday 119-113 victory over the Dallas Mavericks due to a lower left leg injury. He will get an MRI because the X-rays were negative, according to a team statement. He was seen limping to the locker room. Curry seemed to collide knees with McKinley Wright IV while guarding a drive, which led to the injury with 2:01 remaining in the third quarter. After being called for a foul, the Warriors’ star stood up favoring his left leg.

Curry-led Warriors defeated Mavericks without star Luka Doncic. Stephen Curry scored 21 points, dishing out seven assists, and grabbing six rebounds in just 26 minutes (heel). The four-time NBA champion and nine-time All-Star had an evening average of 29.7 points, 6.4 assists, and 6.4 rebounds. The 34-year-old previously missed 11 games after injuring his left shoulder against the Indiana Pacers on December 14. He recovered from the illness, though, and from Jan. 10 to Feb. 2 played in 11 games while averaging 29.0 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 5.5 assists.

X-rays were thankfully negative, but Curry might wind up losing additional time due to the most recent injury. That would undoubtedly be a devastating blow to the 27-26 Warriors, who are struggling to get into playoffs despite winning the NBA title the previous year. Naturally, Curry has a lot of good wishes from people.

The Warriors were coming off a difficult finale to a 1-2 three-game road trip and desperately needed a victory Saturday night at Chase Center. Stars and lesser-known figures alike contributed in large quantities. The Warriors never were overly eager to turn the ball over as they had control over the ball. During the Warriors’ 119-113 victory over the Dallas Mavericks, spectators were largely seen cheering and on their feet.

Curry scored 10 points in the first half and 11 points in the third quarter while connecting on three of his four shots. When Curry left the court, the Warriors were up by 19 points. The bench added 48 points to the 71 points scored by the starters. JaMychal Green had the most points with 14, followed by 13 each from DiVincenzo and Jonathan Kuminga. It was a joint effort from the reigning champions.

After the latest game, Draymond Green has a good chance of becoming the sixth-most prolific three-point shooter in Warriors team history. With 598 three-pointers in his career going into the game, the former defensive player of the year was only five short of passing Tim Hardaway (602). Green opened Saturday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks a perfect 3/3 from outside the arc and has since gone 3/5, putting him just one shy of tying Hardaway (and two away from passing him).
