In order to ascertain the severity of his right knee ailment, Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry underwent an MRI. There was no structural damage found on the MRI.
Curry’s right knee was injured when he landed on it on November 12 against the Minnesota Timberwolves. On November 16, he will not play against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Later this week, he will undergo another evaluation.
Curry is shooting 48.8% from the field, 44.6% from beyond the arc, and 93.0% from the free-throw line this season while averaging 30.7 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 3.9 assists for the Warriors.
The Warriors’ season record is 6-6. They’ve now dropped their last four games.
“There’s always been a certain approach to guarding us,” Curry said. “For years, you know where attention is going to be. Usually try to blitz me in a pick-and-roll, stay body-tight on Klay … whatever the case is we have to make adjustments. We can’t just keep doing the same thing and expect a different result. It’s not a panic or anything. It’s just a matter of getting a little smarter and a little bit more organized.”
In the 11 games he has played this season, Curry has scored at least five points more than each of his teammates on the Warriors. This is the longest winning streak to start a season since Chicago Bulls great Michael Jordan in 1987–1988 (11).
“Everything is on the table for us for adjustments,” Curry added. “When you’ve lost three straight, you have to make adjustments. I don’t know if it’s a rotation thing or whatever the case is, but everything is on the table and everyone has to be ready to step in.”
Curry and Draymond Green won’t be playing for the Warriors against the Thunder. Green will get a suspension for placing center Rudy Gobert of the Minnesota Timberwolves in a headlock.
