SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) – Four-time NBA champion Stephen Curry, sidelined since suffering a partially dislocated left shoulder, will be out for at least another two weeks, the reigning champion Golden State Warriors said on Saturday.
Curry, who suffered the injury December 14 at Indiana while trying to make a steal, has missed the team’s past four games.
The Warriors said Curry was recently reevaluated and the exam indicated Curry is “making good progress” in his recovery and “will be re-evaluated again in two weeks”, the team said in a statement.
The 34-year-old guard, a two-time NBA Most Valuable Player and last season’s NBA Finals MVP, will miss at least six games in the next two weeks, starting with Golden State’s home showdown Sunday against Memphis.
That contest is part of the NBA’s annual holiday NBA schedule, this year featuring five games involving most of the league’s best clubs and biggest stars. In other holiday games, the Philadelphia 76ers will visit New York while Dallas play host to the Los Angeles Lakers.
