Stephen Curry likely to miss entire season with hand injury

A Golden State Warriors source told Bleacher Report's Ric Bucher that Curry's hand injury is "worse than initially thought" and will likely cost him the entire 2019-20 season.

Curry underwent surgery a week ago to fix a broken left hand and the team announced he would be out at least three months, but it seems like that timeline has been extended even further. Curry had successful surgery on the hand and originally, he was only supposed to be out for 3-4 months, which meant he would have been back in time for the last stretch of the season. "There's no reason to believe right now that he can't play this season".

The Warriors are 2-6, and things could get really ugly for them with both Curry and Klay Thompson out and Kevin Durant having departed in free agency.

Curry, a two-time MVP, suffered the injury against the Phoenix Suns on October 30 after landing hard on his hand on a drive into the lane that ended with a collision with Suns center Aron Baynes.

In the four games he played in this season, Curry averaged 20.3 points, 5.0 rebounds and 6.5 assists while shooting 40.9 percent from the field, just 24.3 percent from beyond the arc and a ideal 100 percent from the free-throw line.

Golden State plays Friday night at Minnesota.
