With the Dallas Mavericks reigning over the Golden State Warriors in the last game, will Stephen Curry play in the next game against the Houston Rockets?
The answer is a sad no. Point guard, Stephen Curry, will be missing his second straight game against the Houston Rockets on Thursday with a bruised leg. Curry, the reigning MVP, also didn’t play against the Dallas Mavericks.
The Mavs handed the defending champions without the MVP their second defeat of the season. Shaun Livingston started as a point guard against Dallas. Warriors were outplayed 114-91.
Curry sustained the left leg injury during their win against Sacramento Kings. Interim coach Luke Walton clarified that Curry may miss the games in the Texas trip. Festus Ezeli will also be missing the second game of the trip with the MVP.
Warriors also missed the services of other PG Leandro Barbosa and Harrison Barnes due to injuries. The Warriors have made a 29-2 start this season, which is a NBA record.
Curry though worked out in the pregame practice session but later was ruled out. The MVP has averaged 30.5 points, 6.4 assists and 5.7 rebound in this season and has led the Warriors to clinch the record.
