Warriors’ superstar Stephen Curry will be out at least three months after suffering a broken hand. Curry went down in the third quarter of Wednesday’s matchup against the Suns. It was revealed after the 121-110 Warriors loss that his left hand was broken.
The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported that he will be evaluated in three months.

Golden State lost Kevin Durant to free agency in the offseason. They also learned that the ACL injury Klay Thompson suffered in Game 6 of last year’s NBA Finals will possibly sideline him for the entire season. Bench lynchpin Shaun Livingston also retired after the 2019 Finals.
A far cry from the teams that made five straight Finals appearances, the Warriors were leaning on Steph Curry, Draymond Green and the newly acquired D’Angelo Russell. Now, with Curry out as well, it seems as if the team is aiming for a high draft pick.
Russell will take over point guard duties in Curry’s absence. The Warriors are currently 1-3. Their next game comes Friday against the San Antonio Spurs.
