OAKLAND – Stephen Curry isn’t worried about his right elbow, and neither are the Warriors.
The MVP banged his elbow landing on metal flooring after tumbling over courtside seats Wednesday in the second quarter of Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals against Oklahoma City. Curry, sporting a highly visible lump, recovered well enough to score 17 points in the third quarter in a 118-91.
The Warriors on Thursday described the swelling as a “contusion” but did not place Curry on the preliminary injury report for Game 3 on Sunday in Oklahoma City.
Though Curry underwent treatment Thursday morning and “showed improvement,” according to the team, there are no plans to drain the elbow, general manager Bob Myers told 95.7 The Game.
“It looks like a tennis ball on top of it, but it doesn’t affect range of motion or anything,” Curry said Wednesday night after scoring a team-high 28 points. “It’s just some pain, so I’ll be all right.”
