Finally! We now know what’s wrong with Steph Curry after his nasty fall on April 24. Golden State Warriors fans took to Twitter to respond to the official diagnosis, and they’re praying for him to jump back into the finals. Find out what’s wrong with him, and what fans have to say about it, right here!
Golden State Warriors fans have been holding their breath since NBA star Stephen Curry, 28, took a nasty spill on the court on April 2. They’ve been patiently waiting to find out what’s wrong with his knee and if he will be out of the playoffs for good. We have the answer, plus fan reactions, here!
All of the Golden State Warriors fans had a collective meltdown on April 24 when they watched 2015 MVP Steph crash and burn just before halftime. They’ve been patiently waiting to hear if their star would be out for the season with his knee injury, and now we have an answer. On April 25, SportsCenter shared on Twitter that “Warriors guard Steph Curry has Grade 1 MCL sprain in his right knee and will be re-evaluated in 2 weeks.” That means that he could be good to go, but it all depends on how he’s healing.
Two weeks off in the playoffs may sound awful, but it’s actually way better than many fans were expecting. After taking down the Rockets on April 24, it’s unclear when their next game in the playoffs will be. It’s possible Steph won’t miss a single game before he’s reevaluated, and at most he could miss three games, which means he would have a chance to step in and save the team if they couldn’t make due without him.
Fans have mixed reactions to the news, but mostly they’re glad to hear about the sprain.
Steph Curry out two weeks? Thank goodness that's only three games in the NBA Playoffs.

Steph Curry to miss 2 weeks. Well by that time the 2nd round of the NBA playoffs should be about to start.

Really hope GSW can weather the 2 week storm and not get knocked out by the Clips. Don't want to be robbed of Steph Curry in the playoffs.
