Warriors’ Steph Curry suffers left quad contusion in loss to Mavs


In addition to a cold-shooting performance amid an unusual slump, Steph Curry picked up an injury against the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night.

In a nasty loss to Luka Doncic and the Mavs, Curry suffered a left quad contusion, according to Steve Kerr. Curry appeared to bang his knee on a Mavericks defenseman. However, after being sidelined, the Golden State guard stayed in the game.

As the Warriors set to meet the New Orleans Pelicans in the return leg of a back-to-back road on Thursday, Curry’s status for the contest is in jeopardy. After Wednesday’s game, Kerr said there was a chance the Warriors would face Curry against the Pelicans.

Going through @anthonyVslater on Twitter:

In his post-game statement Wednesday, Curry said he was “not optimistic” that he would play Thursday because of how he felt after the game in Dallas.

If Curry is ruled out on Thursday, Jordan Poole will likely return to the Golden State starting lineup alongside Gary Payton II in the backcourt against the Pelicans.

With two days off after the consecutive Golden State road, Curry could have three days off to heal before the Warriors host the Cleveland Cavaliers at Chase Center on Sunday.
