Golden State Warriors star guard Steph Curry is considered day-to-day after an MRI on his right knee revealed “nothing alarming,” coach Steve Kerr announced.
“There was good news with the MRI,” Kerr said after Golden State’s 104-101 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday. “Nothing alarming, so I would say he’s day-to-day and we’ll see. We’ll just have an update each day and let you know what’s going on, but it won’t be long. If he misses another game or two, or whatever, it’s not going to be anything long-term.”
Also on Wednesday, ESPN reported the NBA is looking into the scuffle between the Warriors and Timberwolves, namely Draymond Green’s headlock on Minnesota center Ruby Gobert. Golden State is idle Wednesday before it hosts the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday in San Francisco.
Warriors stars Klay Thompson and Draymond Green and Timberwolves forward Jaden McDaniels were all kicked out of Tuesday’s contest. The trio of ejections occurred just 1:43 into the game, when Thompson and McDaniels grabbed each other’s jerseys on their way down the court after Anthony Edwards missed a 3-pointer.
Gobert was one of the first to separate the two, but in doing so, prompted Green to retaliate by placing the Minnesota big man in a headlock.
Curry, 35, sat out Tuesday’s game after injuring his knee following a hard fall in the second half of the Warriors’ 116-110 loss to the Timberwolves on Sunday. The two-time NBA MVP continued to play in Sunday’s game and finished with 38 points in 36 minutes.
Curry is averaging 30.7 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.9 assists in 11 games this season while shooting 48.8 percent from the floor and 44.6 percent from 3-point range.
