SAN FRANCISCO — Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry suffered a broken left hand in Wednesday’s game against the Phoenix Suns after a hard fall.
The play happened with 8:31 left in the third quarter when Curry drove to the rim and collided with Suns big man Aron Baynes, who attempted to take a charge and ended up falling on top of Curry’s hand.
Curry stayed on the ground for a few moments holding his wrist and then got up and tried to shake off the pain. He tried to stay in the game before the Warriors called a timeout and Curry walked to the bench. After another few moments, Curry headed to the locker room with Rick Celebrini, the Warriors’ director of sports medicine and performance.
Since Curry was not able to take his free throws after Baynes was called for the foul, he was not permitted to reenter Wednesday’s game. Warriors center Willie Cauley-Stein took the free throws in Curry’s absence.
