Stephen Curry underwent surgery to fix a broken left hand a week ago and is expected to miss at least three months, but it sounds like that would now be the best-case scenario for the two-time NBA MVP.
Warriors guard Stephen Curry has not been dominated out for the period, a source told Bay Spot Information Team Friday, refuting an earlier report that Curry is likely to pass up the overall season with a broken hand. Shortly after, Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle was informed by a Golden State source that Bucher's report was false and that the break was not worse than expected. Since the injury is to Curry's hand and not an area where injuries are more common (i.e. ankle, knee), Payne is unsure when Curry will be able to return to the court. "Like we've said, he's going to get re-evaluated in three months, and we'll go from there". There is no reason to believe right now that he cannot play this season.More news: Australians warned worst bushfires may be yet to come

While Bucher's report could be proven untrue depending on how Curry goes about rehab, this is certainly cause for concern if you're a Warriors fan. Among other issues, they lost Kevin Durant to free agency and Klay Thompson is out for the season due to a torn ACL suffered in the Finals. The Warriors' expectation is for Curry to be re-evaluated in February, as at first supposed, and make a decision on subsequent methods from there. This does not mean, however, that he will not be healthy enough after three months.
