The star player's health has been a focal point of concern after he missed Tuesday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves due to knee soreness.
Curry's Injury and MRI Results
Stephen Curry, the Warriors' leading scorer and a pivotal figure in their lineup, took a hard fall during the second half of Sunday's game against Minnesota, leading to concerns about his knee.
Despite the fall, Curry continued to play in that game but was later seen attending to his right knee. The decision to rule Curry out for Tuesday's game was taken in the afternoon, followed by an MRI to assess the extent of the injury.
Coach Steve Kerr, addressing the MRI results, stated, "Nothing alarming. He is day-to-day and we will see. If he misses another game or two, it's not going to be anything long-term." This statement brings a sigh of relief to the Warriors camp, indicating that Curry's injury is not as severe as initially feared.
