Everyone knows that the Golden State Warriors are attempting to climb higher in the Western Conference standings and turn the season around.
And everyone also knows that if that happens, it’ll be because Stephen Curry is playing like the iconic NBA star he is.
Unfortunately, the Warriors will be without him for some time.

On Sunday, the Warriors announced that Curry suffered partial tears to his superior tibiofibular ligaments and interosseous membrane as well as a contusion to his lower leg.
In other words, Curry suffered a pretty nasty left leg injury during Saturday night’s game against the Dallas Mavericks.
The team said that Curry will certainly miss Golden State’s Monday night game against the Oklahoma City Thunder but “additional clarity on a potential timeline will be established in the coming days.”
While nothing has been confirmed, Curry is expected to be out at least through the All-Star break in a few weeks.
He might end up missing even more time than that.
This is not good news for the Warriors, who are currently the eighth team in the West with a 27-26 record.
After a truly tough season so far, it looked like the Warriors were getting things together and had a chance at being fully functional and competitive by the time the playoffs started.
Curry was a huge part of that.
So far this season, the nine-time All-Star has averaged 29.4 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 6.4 assists.
He has been the best player for the Warriors once again as well as the most consistent.
So now one wonders how they will survive without him on the floor.
Curry and the team have confirmed that he will be back but the timetable for his re-entry is unknown, leaving Warriors fans very nervous about the next few weeks.NEXT: The Warriors Are Having Trouble In Overtime
