His tailbone is still bruised: Warriors guard Stephen Curry will be inactive on Tuesday against the 76ers at Chase Center in San Francisco.
Coach Steve Kerr broke the news on Monday, per ESPN’s Nick Friedell.
I’m not surprised at all by this news. Curry fell hard on his backside against the Rockets last week, right on the edge of a metal stairway-step. I was worried he might have cracked that tailbone, with how he reacted to his hard fall.
Here is it, in case you forgot.
Guard Jordan Poole will almost assuredly start in Curry’s place for the third consecutive game. The second-year player has proved capable, scoring 20-plus points in each start.
But when will Curry be back? Coach Steve Kerr said the injury isn’t anything to worry about, per The Athletic’s Anthony Slater.
But still … Kerr believes Curry’s injury will be short term? Nothing more concrete than that? Well, it’ll have to do for now. Golden State will keep Curry out as long as they have to, with health the No. 1 factor. Hopefully for NBA fans everywhere, that’s not much longer.
