Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors has suffered an MCL injury and will be evaluated on Saturday to determine its severity, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports. Curry left in the third quarter of the Warriors’ game against the Atlanta Hawks on Friday night and did not return to action.

From Charania’s report:

Initial tests on Curry’s knee showed a degree of an MCL injury, which will be determined fully in the MRI, sources said.

Curry suffered the injury in Friday’s game against the Atlanta Hawks, his first game back after missing six games with a right ankle sprain.

Curry is averaging 26.3 points, 6.2 assists, and 5.1 rebounds for the Warriors this season. The defending NBA champions currently sit in second place in the Western Conference playoffs race with a 54-18 record.

Update:

Curry is expected to miss three weeks with an MCL sprain.

If Curry is cleared to play in three weeks, he’ll not miss any of the 2018 NBA Playoffs.
