Dare I say I almost feel SORRY for the Golden State Warriors?

It has been reported on Friday that Stephen Curry will is unlikely to return this season after breaking his left hand last week, according to Bleacher Report’s Ric Bucher, as a Warriors team source said Curry’s “fracture was worse than originally thought.”

Last Friday, Curry underwent surgery and was originally scheduled to miss three months, which would pin him at returning to play before the All Star break in February. That has been revealed to be just a pipe dream.

At this point, the once formidable Warriors are less than a shell of their former selves, with their current 2-6 starting lineup resembling more of a G-League team (minus Eric Paschall!) than a unit you’d expect on the fresh footprints of a dynasty. The Warriors roster has nine players 23 years old or younger and with their double-headed monster in Klay and Steph looking at forfeiting the entire season, it may be best for the franchise to drink until blackout and forget the 2019-2020 season ever happened.

UPDATE: The Warriors are now refuting the report that Curry is unlikely to return this season, calling it “complete hogwash.”

“That’s complete hogwash,” one source told The San Francisco Chronicle. “Like we’ve said, he’s going to get re-evaluated in three months, and we’ll go from there. There’s no reason to believe right now that he can’t play this season.”

Regardless, the Warriors shouldn’t put the cap back on that Jack Daniels just yet.
