Stephen Curry is the reason why the Golden State Warriors became a modern-day NBA dynasty. Indeed, he is the face of the franchise. Without Steph, the Dubs do not look like a championship contender. However, the three-point King is not the only one star on the team. The Dubs have one of the most popular trios in the league. They have Draymond Green and Klay Thompson, along with Curry, to guide the team to championship runs. Moreover, this trio won four NBA championships with the Golden State Warriors. However, Stephen Curry is like the glue that holds the core of the team together.

Even at the age of 35, the three-point King is maintaining an above 25.0 points scoring average. However, the Dub Nation is also aware that the skinny kid from Akron, Ohio, is a little injury-prone. That’s what the fans worry the most about. Lately, in the game against the Chicago Bulls, the face of the franchise twisted his ankle late in the fourth quarter. He had to leave the game right away. When Steph left, the Warriors led the Bulls 112-110. However, by the end of the game, the Dubs lost 125-122 in the absence of Curry. Now, the fans wonder how long it will take Curry to return to the lineup.


Is Stephen Curry Out For The Rest Of The Season?

In the final minutes of the game between the Dubs and the Bulls, fans saw Steph limping off the court on Thursday. It was not a good sight for the home fans. As per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, on Friday, an MRI of the ankle of Stephen Curry returned clean. The team as well as the Dub Nation is awaiting a timeline depending on the superstar’s progress over the following few days. Lately, The Athletic’s Shams Charania mentioned the team, and the fans hope that the three-point King will only miss one or two games.

Later, Monte Poole of NBC Sports Bay Area mentioned that a source confirmed of the team receiving some good news on Curry’s ankle. As per Poole, Curry might return in 7 to 10 days. Recently, Dr. David E. Oji, MD of Stanford Medicine told NBC Sports Bay Area that the injury of Stephen Curry was likely on the “Mild side.” That’s why Steph expects to return to the court so quickly after twisting his ankle. On top of that, The Woj of ESPN, mentioned that the results of MRI shows there was no structural damage.

Doctors And Teammates Hope For Steph’s Quick Recovery

Dr. Oji mentioned the most important thing is for Steph’s ankle to be stable. If that’s stable, even from a mild sprain, the doctor believes Curry is still at a nice optimal age that should help him heal very well. Moreover, the doctor advised the team to make sure there is no structural issues.

And it is also essential to maintain Steph’s strength and ligament stability. Later, Draymond Green said on Thursday night that Curry’s spirits were high. Hence, he and the team hope the injury is not too bad. But Green also mentioned that they have to just wait and see.
