The injury occurred when he tried to draw a charge with one minute left in the first quarter of yesterday’s 116-109 loss to the Miami Heat. He still managed to stay in the game and finished with 36 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, and five 3-pointers on 9-of-19 shooting and 13-of-13 from the free-throw line.
That was quite a performance considering that Curry may have reaggravated an injury to the same region during a Mar. 17 game against the Rockets.

The post Warriors Guard Stephen Curry Ruled Out Friday vs. Raptors first appeared on SportsGrid.
The Raptors are now as high as a 4.5-point favorite for tonight’s game after opening as a two-point favorite.
The Warriors have Brad Wanamaker as a backup point guard who can fill in some minutes, but he’s more of a game manager than an offensive threat. Andrew Wiggins could be a player to target in terms of scoring props as Wiggins has scored over 20 points in six of his last seven games and even had a 40-point effort in one of them.
