Another Bad News: Curry to Miss First Round of the Playoffs

Stephen Curry ankle injury


Steve Kerr: "There's no way" that Steph Curry will be in the line up for the first round

The Golden State Warriors may have won their game against the Atlanta Hawks. Steph Curry may have returned after recovering from his ankle injury and even scored 29 points against the Hawks. However, things may need to change for the Warriors as their star point guard got injured again and will likely to miss the opening round of the playoffs.

That is according to Coach Steve Kerr who said that there's no way the Warriors will have a healthy Steph Curry for the opening round of this year's playoffs. An MRI was undertaken on Curry a day after the 2-time MVP was hurt and MRI results showed that Curry has a Grade 2 sprain in his medial collateral ligament. The Warriors also said that Curry will need to be re-evaluated again after three weeks and that would be on April 14, 2018- the possible start of the first round.


Can the Warriors make it past the first round without Curry?

If the playoffs is to start today, the Warriors would be facing the Minnesota Timberwolves in the first round. Now, assuming that Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson are back by then as both stars and Draymond Green are all injured as well, the Warriors would still have the upper hand against the much younger Timberwolves because of their championship experience. 

However, we all have to remember that the Timberwolves were able to beat a Curry-less Warriors despite Kevin Durant's 39 points so that says something about Minnesota's chances of an upset. But then, things are different during the playoffs than during the regular season. 

Prediction: The Warriors will still win the series against the Timberwolves, 4-1.


Conclusion

Golden State is currently facing a future of uncertainty as their 4 stars are injured heading into the playoffs and one way or another, these injuries will have an effect on their chances to repeat as champions. Will they even reach the Western Conference Finals? Even if they do, can they beat the Houston Rockets assuming that the Rockets make it that far, too? Yes, as long as they have everybody by then.
