Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry has been riddled with injuries recently, affecting the team this late in the season.

The NBA three-point king averages 29.4 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 6.4 assists on 49.5 percent shooting, and his absences on the court put a huge void in the Warrior offense.

Curry, 34, recently injured his left leg during their matchup against the No. 6 Dallas Mavericks last Saturday. An MRI showed partial tears to his superior tibiofibular ligament and interosseous membrane. According to the report, the Warriors superstar also had a lower leg contusion.

The incident happened when the Chef defended McKinley Wright IV, who was driving toward the basket. Unfortunately, they banged knees with Curry being sent to the stands. He was limping afterward.

Although the Dubs managed to hold off Dallas 119-113, they will play without their leader. He is expected to miss multiple weeks because of his injury, which is crucial, especially with the team as the eighth seed.

But that is just one of the injuries Curry suffered this season. Since last year, he has had five injuries that rendered him ineligible to play.

January 20, 2023

The Warriors went on a road trip without all of their best players. Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, and Andrew Wiggins were out. Thus a depleted Dubs faced the Cleveland Cavaliers. Curry was also ruled out of the game due to hip tightness.

Fortunately, they won the game 120-114.

December 14, 2022

Probably one of the worst injuries Curry had. The Chef suffered a partial dislocation of his left shoulder during their match against the Indiana Pacers. You can also see how painful it was just by checking the video:

It was also a crucial time for the superstar to be sidelined. They were 14-14, and following the loss against the Pacers, the Warriors went on to have four more defeats before going on a five-game win streak.

December 7, 2022

During the Warriors’ matchup with Utah Jazz, Curry was sidelined due to left ankle soreness. Many speculated that the NBA three-point king suffered the injury because of his heavy load to keep his team in the playoff picture.

As a result of his absence, the four-time NBA champs were defeated by the Jazz in a tight game, 123-124.

November 4 and 21, 2022

Days after the NBA 2022-’23 season officially began, Curry was sidelined because of an elbow injury.

The Warriors struggled at the start of the season, suffering a five-game losing streak—all on the road. Adding more “salt to the wound,” Curry missed their game against the New Orleans Pelicans, which they lost.

Then on November 21, he was again ruled out due to the same injury. Hence, they again lost to the Pelicans, this time, in a humiliating fashion, 82-128.

OKBET Stephen Curry injuries


Stephen Curry has suffered many injuries even during the start of his career. His ankles were the primary concern for the superstar, and with Father Time catching up to him, he became even more injury-prone.

Moreso, his absence affects the Warriors, who are trying to push probably one last playoff run with their core of Curry, Green, and Thompson.

Will OKBET players see the Dubs come playoff time with a healthy team? No one knows for sure. But if they are complete in the playoffs, the Warriors will most likely have another shot at winning a title.

2022 NBA Finals MVP Stephen Curry returns to the court after suffering from a shoulder injury only to be defeated by an incomplete Phoenix Suns last January 10, 125-113.

Curry started on Tuesday night after missing 11 games because of a subluxation on his left shoulder last December 14. He finished the match with 24 points, three assists, and one rebound.

OKBET Steph Curry returns but defeated

The Warriors are finally complete, while the Suns are missing key players like Chris Paul, Devin Booker, Deandre Ayton, Cam Johnson, and Cameron Payne, who were out because of an injury. Moreover, Curry returns to the lineup with their match being held at their homecourt—Chase Center.

Suns’ Mikal Bridges led his team in scoring with 26. Former Warriors Damion Lee followed with 22. He hit a three-point shot in the last minute of the first quarter, stapling the lead for good.

The Golden State Warriors could not take the lead from their opponent. By halftime, the Suns’ lead was already at 14.

Described by Philippine Daily Inquirer as “stingy,” the visiting team’s defense pressured the ‘21-’22 NBA champions. Furthermore, Lee damaged his former team by swishing all 14 free throw attempts.

Meanwhile, Klay Thompson was returning to his former self, finishing with 29 points, five rebounds, and a steal. Jordan Poole also had a stellar performance. He had 27 points, six assists, and five rebounds in the loss.

The Warriors are now on a three-game losing streak.

The Suns are now 21-21, with the Golden State trailing behind with 20-21.

Curry Returns but…

Curry was already practicing his shots earlier during the team’s practice last Monday. During his absence, the Warriors had a five-game winning streak.

Unfortunately, their matchup against the Suns showed that Wiggins is still not 100% completely proficient. On the defensive side, he was dominant, recording five steals and two blocks.

However, he had a terrible shooting performance. Out of his 16 field goal attempts, he only made five. He was a -15 that game and had only ten points.

Although the Warriors took care of the ball, unlike the Suns, who had 22 turnovers, they were annihilated defensively. Bridges, Torrey Craig, and Bismack Biyombo had a total of seven blocks that game.

The ‘21-’22 NBA champion was also not shooting very well from the perimeter and long distance. They only had 38.5% field goals and 37.5% on 3s. Meanwhile, their opponent finished with 45.6% and 45.2%.

Since the Suns’ game is the last of the eight-game homestand for the Warriors, OKBET players knew that they were the clear underdogs once they face the San Antonio Spurs, Chicago Bulls, and Washington Wizards. They will also face the No. 1 Boston Celtics and the No. 5 Cleveland Cavaliers before returning home to meet the Brooklyn Nets.

In this five-game road trip, Curry returns to the Warriors and, hopefully, gives them a win. But what do you think so far?
