Stephen Curry of Golden State Warriors aggravates shin contusion again

  • 8 years ago
Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry aggravated his left shin contusion again Tuesday night in a 109-88 win over the Los Angeles Lakers, but he said he isn't worried about the injury long-term and he just needs to protect it while on the floor.
Curry limped noticeably after the impact, and Golden State called a timeout on the ensuing offensive possession.
During the timeout, Curry took to the bench and had Warriors trainer Chelsea Lane work on his leg.
"It's just frustrating and annoying and any other adjective you want to throw in there," Curry said after the Warriors beat the Lakers to improve to 33-2, the best 35-game start in NBA history.
"Long-term, it's not something that I'll have to worry about.
It's just playing through an injury that's there.
It doesn't get worse if I play on it, unless I get kicked, and that's happened three times since I did it, so hopefully it won't keep happening again."
