Curry will be re-evaluated in three weeks. He could possibly return to the team for the playoff run.

He has already missed 21 games this season. If he does not return during the regular season, he will play in the second-fewest games in the regular season with 51.

The Warriors, according to ESPN, are 41-10 this season with him. However, they are 13-8 without him.

Curry suffered his new injury in the third quarter against the Atlanta Hawks. The Warriors won the game, 106-94.

“I was just trying to block a shot, and I ran into him,” McGee said.

Curry’s teammate Kevin Durant suffered this same injury last season. He missed 19 games.

Two players, Los Angeles Lakers rookie point guard Lonzo Ball, along with Los Angeles Clippers and Detroit Pistons power forward Blake Griffin, suffered the same injury this season. Ball missed 15 games, while Griffin missed 14 games.

Curry had 29 points before the injury.

Several Warriors have been dealing with injuries recently. Klay Thompson is dealing with a hand fracture, while Draymond Green suffered a pelvic contusion. Durant is also dealing with a rib injury.

Green may play on Sunday against the Utah Jazz. Thompson and Durant are already listed as out.

According to ESPN, the Warriors lead the league with missed games by All-Stars with 47 missed games. The New Orleans Pelicans are second with 38, as DeMarcus Cousins is done for the season.

Curry, who recently celebrated his 30th birthday, is averaging 26.4 points per game. He’s also averaging 6.1 assists and 5.1 rebounds per contest.
