The much-awaited NBA Finals rematch between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers is fast approaching, but it seems like one of the stars from the reigning champions won’t be present to light up the Oracle Arena in time for Christmas.
In an update, the Warriors announced results of the re-evaluation of star guard Stephen Curry’s condition. “The evaluation indicated that the ankle is healing well and that he is making good progress overall, enabling him to progress to modified on-court workouts in the coming days.”
Although he was doing well, Curry won’t be re-evaluated until next week, which means that it’s highly unlikely that we’ll be seeing the two-time league MVP in action.
Curry has been out for the past two weeks after suffering from an ankle injury during their game against the New Orleans Pelicans which they won 128-120.
Despite his absence, the Warriors (24-6) have continued their winning ways after beating the Los Angeles Lakers for their fifth straight victory without Curry, who is currently averaging 26.3 points, 6.6 assists and 5.1 rebounds per game this season.
