Community Shootaround: Warriors Sans Curry

Stephen Curry will miss, at minimum, the next two weeks as he recovers from a sprained right MCL, the team announced earlier today. Curry injured his knee in the Warriors’ Game 4 contest against the Rockets on Sunday afternoon. Last season’s MVP has already missed two games this postseason with an ankle injury, and the team is 1-1 in those contests.

If Curry only misses two weeks, that should bring him back during the Western Conference Semifinals against the winner of the Clippers-Blazers series. Two weeks is an optimistic outlook and there’s no guarantee that will be all the time Curry misses. In the meantime, his teammates are planning on picking up the slack. “One thing we’ve always talked about is our depth, and we’ve gotta use that to win games,” Draymond Green told ESPN after yesterday’s game.

That brings us to tonight’s topic: How far can the Warriors make it without Curry? Teams don’t win 73 games because of one player, although Curry’s presence on the floor is special for this squad. The Warriors should be able to win one more game against the Rockets to close out this series, but could the team make it to the Western Conference finals without him? How about the NBA finals? Could the Warriors win it all? Let us know what you think in the comment section below. We look forward to what you have to say!

No, maybe and maybe. Without Curry they are formidable but the game slows down a bit and doesn’t play to their pace. Like MJ, he draws the attention that makes everything else happen.

i think they can beat the Clippers and or the Trailblazers. But they will not beat the Spurs.

Yes I have faith in the dubs and I believe that the Warriors didn’t come this just to let it slide through their the cracks. So yes I think they can do it!

I thought the Warriors could still beat the Clippers in 6 games, without Steph…then CP3 goes down. If its Portland, it does make it a much more interesting series. The teams match up pretty welp, but I’d still go with GS. The conference finals is where things become much more difficult in that regard.

Paul’s injury gives the Warriors a much easier path to the Western finals, but they’ll need a healthy Curry to get past the Spurs or Thunder.
