Curry's MRI revealed a Grade 1 MCL sprain in his right knee, which will sideline him for at least two weeks.
Curry's injury was initially deemed a sprain, and Monday's MRI confirmed that diagnosis while revealing no further damage. Although having him sidelined for at least the next two weeks surely represents a considerable blow to the Warriors in the short-term, the fact that he could eventually return during the playoffs provides some silver lining. However, even if the Warriors are able to close out the first-round series with the Rockets, it's quite likely that Curry misses the entire second round, and perhaps even the Western Conference Finals. Further updates should become available once Curry is reevaluated after the two-week period, but for now, coach Steve Kerr appears set to cast his lot with Shaun Livingston as the team's primary point guard, with Andre Iguodala also seeing increased responsibilities off the bench.
