Warriors superstar Steph Curry gave NBA fans a scare when he suffered an injury during the fourth quarter of Golden State’s Game 3 loss to the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night.
Fortunately for the Warriors, it appears their fearless leader won’t have to miss any time in their Finals series.
There’s reportedly “optimism” that Curry avoided any serious issues.
During his media availability on Thursday, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said he expects Curry to take the court in Game 4.
Curry’s foot injury occurred when Boston big man Al Horford awkwardly landed on the back of his leg in a loose-ball scrum. The Warriors point guard stayed in the game for a few more minutes, but was clearly in some serious discomfort.
“I’ll be all right,” Curry explained in a postgame press conference. “I got caught underneath Al [Horford]. Obviously there’ll be some pain, but I’ll be alright. Figure out how it feels tomorrow and get ready for Friday … [It was] the same thing I did against Boston during the regular season, but not as bad.”
“I don’t feel like I’ll miss a game,” he added.
Curry will not need an MRI for this injury issue and is expected to be active during the Warriors’ practice on Thursday.
The Warriors trail the Celtics 2-1 after last night’s loss.
Curry will address the media later this afternoon.
