The Golden State Warriors and Stephen Curry have suffered another jolt. The MVP sustained another leg injury on his return after two games on Saturday.

Curry missed two games during the Texas trip due to a right calf injury. On Saturday, he exited during the game against the Denver Nuggets with a bruised shin. The Warriors managed to escape with a 111-108 overtime win.

“I got kicked,” Curry said after the game.

Denver player Jameer Nelson made contact with the MVP’s leg in the second quarter. Curry departed to the locker room with 2:15 left in the second quarter. Curry confirmed it was a successive blow to his previous bruise.

“Right in the same spot, playing defense. It’s funny. I guess whenever you hurt something, [if] you try to play through a little bit of discomfort and try to get out there, something happens. Just got to deal with it.”

Now, the Warriors are left with only six fit players for the coming games. The MVP praised his teammates for their perseverance to pull off the game in overtime.

“Chips stacked against them, short bench, guys playing 40-plus minutes, found a way to scrap and claw, get stops down the stretch, fight through the fatigue factor, make a couple plays on the offensive plays as well, a gusty win.”
