Stephen Curry

Curry out at least three months

The two-time NBA MVP was hurt during his team's game against the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday, as he suffered a bad fall while going for a layup during the third quarter.

Golden State plan to provide a further update on Curry, whose hand became caught under Suns big man Aron Baynes, in three months - meaning he is unlikely to play again until February 2020.

The 31-year-old - a six-time All-Star - averaged 20.3 points and 6.5 assists in four games at the start of the new season.

Steph Curry stars in Warriors' big win over Portland Trail Blazers

 Curry shot 12 for 23 in his fourth 30-point performance this postseason, finding far more open looks than he had in the last round against Houston.

The two-time NBA MVP outplayed the Portland duo of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum, who combined to go 11 for 31 facing a strong Golden State defence.

Klay Thompson had 26 points, including a late one-handed slam. Draymond Green established the energy on both ends early for the well-rested Warriors and finished with 12 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, three blocks and two steals.

Curry scores 15,000th regular-season point in Warriors win

Curry joined Wilt Chamberlain, Rick Barry, Paul Arizin and Chris Mullin on Golden State's list during Monday's 110-93 victory.

The two-time MVP finished with 20 points and seven rebounds to help lead the Warriors in Oakland, while Kevin Durant posted 23 points to move 33rd on the all-time scoring list.

Elsewhere, the Milwaukee Bucks outlasted the Detroit Pistons 107-104 thanks to Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Curry opens up about equality

Curry penned an emotional letter on Sunday in The Players' Tribune, discussing his family and hopes of raising his two girls to understand they can do anything they want.

"I want our girls to grow up knowing that there are no boundaries that can be placed on their futures, period," Curry wrote. "I want them to grow up in a world where their gender does not feel like a rulebook for what they should think, or be, or do. And I want them to grow up believing that they can dream big, and strive for careers where they’ll be treated fairly.

Curry 'felt great' in comeback game

Playing for the first time in almost six weeks after recovering from a medial collateral ligament sprain, two-time MVP Curry scored 28 points in 27 minutes of action as the Warriors beat the New Orleans Pelicans 121-116 at home to open up a 2-0 advantage in their Western Conference semi-final.

Kevin Durant and Draymond Green also starred for Golden State, the former crucially collecting 15 of his 29 points in the final quarter, but Curry's impressive comeback was the big story at Oracle Arena.

Warriors top Celtics

Saturday's matchup between the Celtics and the Warriors was the perfect cliched atmosphere. It felt like a playoff game, the two best guards in the league were battling back and forth in a potential NBA Finals showdown.

But there was nothing cliched about Curry and Irving's performances at Oracle Arena.

Two-time MVP Curry dominated the second half, but did so getting to the line just two times before the final minutes of the game, finishing with 49 points, five assists and four rebounds.

Curry revels in Warriors return

Curry had been out of action since December 4 due to a sprained ankle, but led the scoring with 38 points - including 10 three-pointers - in a 141-128 win for the defending champions on Saturday.

The talismanic guard became the only player this season with 35 points entering the fourth quarter while playing fewer than 25 minutes and he revelled in being back on the big stage.

"I was excited, it felt like the first day of school again, for real." said Curry.

Curry, Durant stick up for Lonzo Ball

Ball has averaged 8.7 points, 7.3 rebounds and 7.1 assists so far this season, shooting 31 per cent from the field and 24.5 per cent from three-point range.

Curry did not really struggle his rookie season, at least not for long. Selected number seven overall in the 2009 draft, he averaged 17.5 points and 5.9 assists per game, while shooting 44 per cent from three-point range.

Ball has been criticised and questioned for some of his performances, but Curry said the 20-year-old just needed time.

Curry takes on event

Curry, a two-handicap playing on a sponsor's exemption, said earlier in the week he had two goals: to make the cut and "just have fun."

It appeared he was accomplishing the latter at TPC Stonebrae in California, evident by his increasingly loose nature as the round unfolded on the way to a four-over 74 on Thursday.

But making the cut may be another matter. He was three over five holes into his opening round, only one stroke out of last in the field, before rallying to play the last four holes of his front nine in one under and make the turn at two over.

Warriors' Stephen Curry to play at Ellie Mae Classic

The two-time MVP point guard has accepted an invitation to compete at the Ellie Mae Classic in August at TPC Stonebrae, the PGA Tour announced on Wednesday.

Curry will not have to travel far for the tour event, with TPC Stonebrae under 30 minutes away from the Warriors' Oracle Arena home.

"We are elated to have Stephen Curry compete in this year's Ellie Mae Classic at TPC Stonebrae," tournament director Trish Gregovich said in a statement.
