Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry will be sidelined multiple weeks with a left leg injury, The Athletic reported Sunday.
He was injured with about two minutes left in the third quarter of Saturday night’s 119-113 win over the visiting Dallas Mavericks. His left knee collided with Mavericks guard McKinley Wright’s knee while Curry was playing defense.
Curry exited the game, limped to the locker room with assistance and did not return, finishing with a team-high 21 points. Initial X-rays came back negative and he was scheduled to have an MRI on Sunday.
“Any time a guy gets an MRI, there’s a concern level,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said after the game. “We’ll just have to wait and see the results. … This has happened many, many times over the years. So, fingers crossed that he’s OK.”
Curry, 34, missed 11 games earlier this season with a left shoulder injury. Golden State was 6-5 in his absence.
Selected to his ninth All-Star team this season, Curry is averaging 29.4 points, 6.3 rebounds and 6.4 assists in 38 games.
The four-time NBA champion and two-time Most Valuable Player is the league’s all-time leader with 3,302 career 3-pointers.
