Stephen Curry unlikely to return this season from broken hand

In a new report from Bleacher Report's Ric Bucher, it appears as though Curry's injury is much worse than originally reported and that he will now be missing the entire season.

"That's complete hogwash. Like we've said, he's going to get re-evaluated in three months, and we'll go from there". At that time, the staff introduced they would update his standing in 3 months, which could have set Curry back again on the court docket all around the All-Star Video game.

Bucher later clarified his original statement by saying that while the injury is worse than originally thought, he believes Curry wouldn't return this season because "there's no competitive reason to".

After Golden State took an 88-86 lead on Willie Cauley-Stein's jumper early in the fourth, Paul scored four points during Oklahoma City's 9-0 run to regain the lead for good.

This season was already a hard fall for the Warriors, who have appeared in the NBA Finals in five consecutive seasons, winning in 2015, 2017 and 2018, but have a 2-6 start.

Curry, a two-time MVP, suffered the injury against the Phoenix Suns on October 30 after landing hard on his hand on a drive into the lane that ended with a collision with Suns center Aron Baynes.

The Golden State Warriors say any talk of Stephen Curry being out for the remainder of the 2019-20 season is not based in fact.
