“That’s complete hogwash,” one source told The Chronicle. “Like we’ve said, he’s going to get re-evaluated in three months, and we’ll go from there. There’s no reason to believe right now that he can’t play this season.”

Curry injury update: Warriors guard has surgery, out at least 3 months

  Curry injury update: Warriors guard has surgery, out at least 3 months Warriors' superstar Steph Curry will likely be out until at least February after undergoing surgery on his broken hand.He will be re-evaluated in three months.

In the Bleacher Report story, reporter Ric Bucher wrote that Curry's “fracture was worse than originally thought.” Multiple team sources have denied that claim, saying the fracture wasn’t any worse than anticipated.

Curry, who underwent surgery on his broken left hand last Friday at the Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute in Los Angeles, won’t be re-evaluated until Feb. 1. That means he’ll sit at least another 41 games.

If Curry came back immediately after the re-evaluation, he’d play 33 more games this season. In his absence, the Warriors have understandably struggled, going 1-3. Draymond Green has also missed three of those games with a finger injury.

The rest of the Warriors’ injury report includes Kevon Looney (neuropathic condition), Jacob Evans (hip), Klay Thompson (knee) and Alen Smailagic (ankle).

Warriors’ Stephen Curry suffers apparent wrist injury, won’t return vs. Suns

  Warriors’ Stephen Curry suffers apparent wrist injury, won’t return vs. Suns Warriors guard Stephen Curry won’t return to Wednesday night’s game against the Suns at Chase Center after leaving midway through the third quarter with an apparent wrist injury. With his team down 83-54, Curry drove toward the rim, colliding with Suns center Aron Baynes and landing on his hands. For several moments, he writhed on the floor and grabbed his left wrist as a sell-out crowd went silent. After getting helped to his feet, Curry hunched over, continuing to grab his wrist before he got subbed out and headed to the locker room.Because he didn’t come back to the floor to shoot his free throws, he isn’t eligible to return to the game, per NBA rules.
