The Golden State Warriors have not looked good this season and there are several reasons why. But the bad news keeps pouring because now they’re out with both of the Splash Brothers for the foreseeable future.
The team was already getting smashed on by the Phoenix Suns and to add insult to injury (no pun), Steph Curry broke his hand on a play where he came down with Aaron Baynes.

There is no timetable for his return as of now, the Warriors organization is probably running tests to find out the extent of the injury but they can chalk up this season to deuces.
Without Klay Thompson, Chef Curry and a young team still trying to learn the system, plus them playing horrible defense, it’s a wrap for the year in a tough Western Conference. It would take a miracle for the Warriors to come back and make the playoffs if they keep losing games, especially when they had Curry healthy.
Best case scenario is they get a top pick in the lottery, bring in a young asset or two and try to chase a title next season.
Prayers up for Steph as he goes through a speedy recovery.
Stephen Curry has a broken left hand.

Steph Curry will get a CT scan on his hand before determining timeline but initial diagnosis is he’s got a broken second metacarpal in his left hand

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski had this to say about the Warriors season:
“I don’t think there’s anybody in Golden State who expects Stephen Curry back at least within the next couple of months. Bob Myers will be out on the road scouting because they’re going to have a very high draft pick in this coming draft. This is a team that probably was headed toward the lottery anyway and now you look at the lineup they’re going to be putting out on that floor … This is a team that is going to be in the lottery, and probably deep in the lottery.”
Our entire family thanks you all for the love and support and PRAYERS for Stephen. When the love surpasses life’s hurdles there is NOTHING you can’t overcome. We stand in our belief of impact over legacy. This is Gods way of showing him, you, I , us how to “trust the process”.

Before taking questions, Aron Baynes said this about Steph Curry’s broken hand: “Feel terrible for what happened to Steph. It’s unfortunate. You never want to see someone go down and get hurt, let alone be a part of it. Best wishes to him and hope he has a speedy recovery.” #Suns
