Whoa: Stephen Curry Has Been Sidelined Indefinitely, Optimism He Can Return for the Playoffs

Chicago Bulls

The Golden State Warriors just got some extremely disappointing news. First reported by The Athletic’s Shams Charania and quickly confirmed by ESPN, Stephen Curry will have to be sidelined indefinitely with a ligament sprain in his left foot.

There is optimism Curry can return for the start of the postseason in mid-April, but Adrian Wojnarowski noted he will see a specialist for more clarity.

Golden State is currently in a tight seeding race for one of the West’s top spots. They sit just one game behind the Memphis Grizzlies for the No. 2 seed, which may be out of the question now that Curry is on the sideline. However, the good news is they do have a 3.5 game cushion on the No. 4 seeded Utah Jazz, a lead that will be hard to lose with only the 18th-toughest schedule in the NBA ahead, per Tankathon.

Still, the league is worse when Stephen Curry is off the floor, so one can only hope the Warriors figure out this situation before the playoffs arrive.

After all, we need the Bulls to beat him in the Finals!
