Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry will be sidelined for at least two weeks after spraining his right MCL.
Curry suffered the injury when he slipped on a wet spot and banged his knee on the floor prior to the first half buzzer in his side’s 121-94 Game 4 win over the Houston Rockets on Sunday.
The reigning MVP underwent an MRI scan on Monday, which revealed a Grade 1 sprain.
“From our perspective, relatively good news,” Warriors general manager Bob Myers told reporters on Monday.
Curry will be re-evaluated in two weeks’ time and took to Twitter on Monday afternoon to thank his fans for their good wishes and constant support.
Thanks 4 all the prayers & messages. Can feel all the positive energy. God is Great! All things considered I’m Gonna be alright! #DubNation

The Warriors currently hold a 3-1 lead over the Rockets and only need to win one more game to advance to the Western Conference semi-finals. Should they do that, their series will either begin on May 1 or 3, which would mean that Curry will still miss a portion of it.
