Update, April 1 — Curry will be re-evaluated after the regular season ends, per Shayna Rubin, which means he will miss the final five games for the Warriors. Golden State still hopes to have him for the playoffs.

Update, March 17 — Curry is expected to miss three weeks due to a sprained toe, per Jordan Schultz. Per Shams Charania, the guard is out indefinitely. This it a tough blow for the Warriors, who are in a race with the Grizzlies for the second seed in the West. Per DraftKings Sportsbook, Golden State is +450 to win the NBA title and +190 to win the West. With Curry sidelined for three weeks, that calculus could change. Although the point guard hasn’t been playing his best basketball, he’s been getting his teammates involved more. It’s likely the Warriors fall to the No. 3 or even the No. 4 seed in the West.

With Draymond Green back and James Wiseman returning soon, the Warriors should still be able to compete on most nights. With Curry, Green and Klay Thompson healthy, Golden State will still feel it is the best team in the league. If Curry can get back for the playoffs, the Warriors would still be one of the teams favored to win the title.

Golden State Warriors PG Stephen Curry left Wednesday’s game vs. the Boston Celtics due to a foot injury and did not return. Curry only played 14 minutes, scoring 3 points before exiting due to injury. There’s a chance Curry left the game due to precaution and the Warriors don’t want to risk him further injuring the foot.

The Warriors have won four straight games but are struggling against Boston without Curry. The Dubs recently got Draymond Green back in the lineup and are making a push in the Western Conference towards the playoffs, holding down the 3-seed. The Memphis Grizzlies have a 0.5 game on the Dubs entering play on Wednesday and will likely take a 1.0 game lead on Golden State with about a month to go in the regular season.
