Stephen Curry Injury: Latest update can hype demotivated Warriors fanbase

The Golden State Warriors are struggling without their star player Stephen Curry, who currently is missing out on all the action with a shoulder ailment. In the reigning finals MVP’s absence, the Warriors have gone 1-3 and will face a mighty Memphis Grizzlies squad who currently stands 2nd in the Western Conference, on Christmas day.

Journalist Kendra Andrews provided an update on Curry on Saturday in the late afternoon, she quoting Warriors Head Coach wrote: “Steph Curry has returned to the weight room and was able to get some shots up this morning. He’s still a way away from returning to live action.” The Warrior’s Twitter handle too released similar info sparking hope for the Finals MVP’s return.

They wrote, “Stephen Curry, who suffered a subluxation of his left shoulder on December 14 at Indiana and has missed the team’s last four games, was recently re-evaluated. The re-evaluation indicated that Stephen is making good progress. He will be re-evaluated again in two weeks.”

Stephen Curry has been the MVP point guard for Golden State since the time he joined the franchise, and the team is 1-6 without him in the lineup this season. He is the top player on the Warriors in terms of plus/minus, followed by Andrew Wiggins (+5.5), who has also missed some time due to injury, and Draymond Green (+4.7), who ranks third.

The Warriors who now rely on Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole are apparently ready for a challenging stretch. On the other hand, ESPN expert Kendrick Perkins believes the franchise has bleak chances of survival.

Perkins commenting on the Warriors’ depleted squad said, “When we talk about rebound and them bouncing back, we’re talking about championships, we’re not talking about getting into the playoff or the play-in tournament. We’re talking championship or bust. And when I look at their roster, Golden State’s motto for the last few years has been strength in numbers.”

Golden State (15-18) is currently just outside the play-in tournament. They would finish the season in 11th place, slightly ahead of the OKC Thunder (14-18) and behind the Minnesota Timberwolves (16-16), if it ended today. Even yet, they only have a one-game lead over the Thunder and a two-game lead over the Lakers (13-18) for 13th place. The Warriors may find themselves towards the bottom of the standings should they continue to lose the games the way they are losing at the moment.
