Steph Curry will be sidelined for the Warriors’ in-season tournament game against the Minnesota Timberwolves due to a right knee injury sustained in their recent matchup. This marks Curry’s first missed game of the season, providing an opportunity for other scorers to step up.
Curry, averaging 30.7 points per game and shooting 44.6% from 3, has been the leading force for the Warriors. Notably, no other player on the team has scored more than 20 points in a single game this season.
In the previous loss to the Timberwolves, Curry contributed 38 points in the first half of the two-game series. The absence of Curry puts pressure on the Warriors to find alternative offensive strategies against the formidable defense of the Timberwolves.
