The Golden State Warriors will be without Stephen Curry for at least a couple of weeks, the team announced Monday afternoon.
Curry slipped, fell, and sprained his right knee in the Dubs’ 121-94 Game 4 victory Sunday in Houston.

Suddenly, the NBA Playoffs have just become a whole lot more interesting.
Per the AP:
Curry was injured on the final play of the first half, sliding awkwardly to the court and immediately grabbing his knee. He got up and looked to have trouble putting weight on it before jogging with a limp to the locker room. He came out with the team after halftime, but sat on the bench for most of the warmup time. After talking with coaches, he returned to the locker room. […] It was his first game back after missing the last two games with a sprained right ankle.
“I just feel so bad for him,” coach Steve Kerr said. “He’s been healthy all year long and now as soon as the playoffs start, and these things start happening to him.”
The Warriors made an NBA playoff record 21 3-pointers to cruise to a 121-94 victory on Sunday to take a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. […] If Curry can’t go, the Warriors will look to Shaun Livingston to make a third start in his place as they try to wrap up the series on Wednesday in Oakland. The Warriors had four players in double figures on Sunday, led by 23 from Klay Thompson.
