Steph Curry has been ruled out indefinitely with a sprain ligament in his left foot, but there’s optimism he could return by mid-April.
X-rays on his foot came back negative, so the good news is there is no fracture or major damage.
The injury occurred last night when Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart dove for a loose ball.
The optimism for a mid-April return for Curry means he’d likely be back for the playoffs, but we’ll know more information after he undergoes his further testing.
The 34-year-old was averaging 25.5 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 6.3 assists across 64 games played this season, which leaves a huge hole in the Warriors offense.
While Curry is sidelined, Jordan Poole will likely benefit the most fantasy wise, and Gary Payton II is making a return soon for Golden State.
Golden State is currently the third seed in the Western Conference, and are close behind the Memphis Grizzlies.
