Losing Curry for seemingly the rest of the regular season hurts. The Warriors are currently a game back of the Memphis Grizzlies and only 3.5 games ahead of the 4th place Utah Jazz with 12 games left to play. However, the Warriors likely aren’t too worried about the regular season standings as long as they have their team at full strength for the playoffs.
They just recently had Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green on the floor together for the first time this season. Regardless of where the finish in the regular season, the Warriors will be viewed as one of the favorites to win the NBA title.
Missing Curry for the next few weeks will be tough for the Warriors, but getting him back for the playoffs would be viewed as a huge win for the team.
