The Golden State Warriors said Sunday that superstar Stephen Curry suffered a partial ligament tear and injury to his left leg and will be absent through injury.

Curry will be absent from Monday’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder and possibly longer, with “additional clarity on a potential timeline” in the coming days, according to the team.

The Athletic and ESPN report that Curry will be sidelined for “weeks” through injury, at least through the All-Star break.

He had an injury with about two minutes left in the third round of Saturday night’s 119-113 win over the Dallas Mavericks. His left knee collided with the knee of Mavericks guard McKinley Wright while Curry was playing defensively.

Curry ended the game, limping into the dressing room with the assist and not turning around, finishing with the top 21 of the team. Initial X-rays, which were negative, before Sunday’s magnetic resonance imaging, showed “partial tears in his superior tibialis and interosseous ligaments” along with bruising, the team said. purple, the team said.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said after the game: “Whenever a guy goes in for an MRI, there’s a level of anxiety. “We will have to wait and see the results. … This has happened many times over the years. So the fingers crossed that he was fine.

Curry, 34, missed 11 games earlier this season because of a left shoulder injury. Golden State is 6-5 in his absence.

Selected to his ninth All-Star team this season, Curry is averaging 29.4 points, 6.3 rebounds and 6.4 assists in 38 games.
