Steve Kerr: ‘I have no idea how long’ Warriors’ Stephen Curry will be out

The defending champion Golden State Warriors have stumbled through the 2022-23 NBA season thus far.

The pathway ahead just got more difficult after star point guard Stephen Curry suffered a shoulder injury. The issue will keep him off the floor for the next few weeks.

The injury occurred in the third quarter of Wednesday’s loss to the Indiana Pacers after he attempted to strip Jalen Smith of the ball. Curry immediately grabbed his shoulder and shortly thereafter exited the game.

“I have no idea how long he’ll be out, I’m just relieved that is was not more serious and that he will be back,” coach head coach Steve Kerr said in a radio interview with 95.7 The Game.

Curry’s absence leaves a significant offensive void, as he’s been the team’s leading factor in what’s been another impressive individual campaign. He’s seventh in the league with 30.0 points, 6.8 assists, and 6.6 rebounds while shooting 50 percent from the floor and 43.4 percent from beyond the arc.

His absence pushes Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole to the forefront as the primary offensive options. Poole will likely be inserted into the starting lineup to give the Warriors a scoring boost.

Andrew Wiggins will also have an increased opportunity as a scorer. The Warriors will handle the situation with much precaution, given the sensitivity of the injury.

The lack of an outlined return date signals that the team will give Curry as much time as he needs to return at full strength. In the meantime, Golden State must stay afloat while their leading factor is out of the lineup.
