Golden State Warriors superstar point guard Stephen Curry is in doubt for the game against the New Orleans Pelicans with a left knee contusion, in a statement made by Warriors' head coach Steve Kerr on Friday The Phoenix Suns battered Stephen Curry in their game against the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night. Stephen Curry was sent to the floor by hard fouls in the first quarter. He received some treatment after the game and was in obvious pain as he walked cautiously to the reporters for his postgame interview. Left knee contusion was the official diagnosis, and as a result of this injury, Stephen Curry will most likely miss Saturday's night game against the New Orleans Pelicans.

Curry's game against the Suns was not pleasant

The winner of the last two NBA's Most Valuable Player award suffered the contusion in the Warriors' nine-point victory over the Phoenix Suns at the Talking Stick Resort Arena. In the first quarter of Curry's 42 points and 11 assist performance, Phoenix Suns center Alex Len bulldozed Curry as he was attacking the basket. Curry was on the floor in pain for several moments before wincing as he got up to shoot his free throws. It was only a few minutes later that Stephen Curry was crushed to the floor again this time getting fouled by rising superstar Devin Booker on another layup attempt.

Curry was not present at practice

Stephen Curry sat out practice on Friday.

The practice was also a notable practice for the Warriors as it was Kevin Durant's first full participation with the whole team in practice since cleared from his left Medial Collateral Ligament injury he suffered in the February 28th game against the Washington Wizards after teammate Zaza Pachulia fell on his knee.

Stephen Curry who won the Western Conference Player of the week had tallied 20 points or more in his last 16 of 19 games he has appeared in including seven of his last eight games. Stephen Curry is averaging 25 points, seven assists and five rebounds per game this season.

Kevin Durant is not concerned

This game means little to the Warriors as they already clinched the number one seed in the West, with their victory over the Phoenix Suns, as a result of this success the Warriors secure home court throughout the playoffs. However, with the return of Kevin Durant on Saturday, the Warriors would like to have Kevin Durant have some game time with Stephen Curry before the postseason begins. Kevin Durant is not concerned, however stating in a recent interview that he has played 59 games with Stephen Curry this season. “That is many games. I did not just get here yesterday. I have been here the whole season, just happened to miss 20 games. I have been here the whole year, and we were playing well the whole season, so I have played with Steph long enough.”
