Curry to get MRI on knee after leaving game

Klay Thompson

Stephen Curry returned from a six-game absence with a right ankle injury only to strain his left knee after scoring 29 points, and the beat-up, undermanned Golden State Warriors held off the Atlanta Hawks 106-94 on Friday night in Oakland, California.

Immediately, Curry hobbled around the court and the sellout crowd at Oracle Arena groaned collectively.

He then went back to the locker room.

Curry was returning after missing the previous six games with a right ankle injury.

Curry is averaging 26.3 points, 6.2 assists and 5.1 rebounds over 50 games in 2017-18, his ninth year in the National Basketball Association.

The severity of the injury is not yet known and should become clear on Saturday after an MRI.

The incident occurred when teammate JaVale McGee elevated for a block attempt and ended up falling on the left leg of Curry.

Curry scored 11 of his points in a 13-4 Warriors run in the third quarter that turned a 60-53 deficit into a 66-64 lead. Head coach Steve Kerr has yet to decide whether he'll put Curry on a minutes restriction. Health has been a concern for the defending champions as their all-stars Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, along with Curry, all missed time due to various injuries. Though Warriors coach Steve Kerr expects Klay Thompson (right thumb), Kevin Durant (ribs) and Draymond Green (pelvic contusion) back soon, the Warriors can not say the same thing about Curry. "I took him out of the starting lineup on his birthday".

"We stand here before you, old, young, black, white, brown, and we are all united in our commitment", Ranadive said.

LaMarcus Aldridge poured in a career-high 45 points, including 28 in the first half, as San Antonio defeated visiting Utah in overtime in a game with huge playoff implications. Taj Gibson scored 18 points, and Andrew Wiggins added 17 points and 11 rebounds to help the Timberwolves improve to 42-31.

After playing only 26 games during the 2011-12 season, Curry has made at least 78 starts in each of his last five seasons.

Without Curry, they are 13-8 while scoring 105.1 points per game.
