The prolonged absence of the Baby-faced Assassin could be costly for the Dubs. He entirely shouldered the offense of the team, averaging 30.7 points. Moreover, he is one of the two players, who has scored above 20 points for the Dubs in this season. So, the Bay Area team might walk into trouble if Curry misses out for long.

Stephen Curry has been a lone warrior for the Dubs this season. The franchise’s next-best offense players, Klay Thompson, and Andrew Wiggins, are yet to fire this season, as they average only 16.1 and 10.5 points respectively. Compared to Stephen Curry’s average, the difference would make quite a challenge for the Dubs in his absence.

During the Warriors’ last outing, Steph had a hard fall to his knee on the second of the game. The superstar was seen rubbing his knee several times during the play. Hours after the game, the team announced Steph’s potential unavailability for the next game and later ruled him out, reported Sporting News.
