The MRI on Stephen Curry’s right knee didn’t reveal a disaster scenario for the defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors, but the reigning MVP might still miss more playoff games recovering from the injury.
Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reported the results of Curry’s MRI.
The Warriors tweeted an official statement shortly after.
Curry missed Games 2 and 3 of the Warriors’ first-round series against the Houston Rockets with an ankle injury suffered in Game 1. He hurt his knee in Game 4, left the game and didn’t return. Golden State has a 3-1 series lead over Houston with Game 5 set for Wednesday at Oracle Arena.
The Warriors don’t need Curry to eliminate the Rockets, but a potential second-round matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers could be difficult without the league’s best player.
