While grappling for the ball, Boston Celtics big man Al Horford tumbled on top of Curry and all of his weight fell on the star guard’s knee.
Curry was left on the ground, grimacing in pain for a moment before getting up, hobbling around, and trying to shake off the pain.
For a brief moment, the unthinkable seemed possible: could Curry have to sit out the next few games because of an injury to his leg?
Stephen Curry: “I’m gonna play. That’s all I know right now.”

Well, Warriors fans can breathe easily now.
Speaking about his availability for Game 4 on Friday night, Curry said: “I’m gonna play. That’s all I know right now.”
That’s great news for Golden State since Curry is their bright and shining star – but does it mean we will get him playing at 100% of his abilities?
No Crutches For Curry
Horford weighs 240 pounds so the fact that Curry is still on his feet is somewhat remarkable.
However, Curry hasn’t said if he’s feeling any discomfort or pain in his leg.
Yes, he is scheduled to play for Friday’s game but there is a chance that his minutes are limited or his output is affected by any nagging physical pain.
There is still a lot that remains in the dark about Curry’s status.
Warriors fans are hoping that he’s completely fine and performs just as well as he has for Games 1 through 3.
The team really needs that: without question, Curry has been the most consistent and impressive player on the roster.
And now that the team is down 2-1, they need consistency more than ever.
