(The Sports Xchange) – Golden State Warriors star point guard Stephen Curry will be sidelined at least two weeks with a sprained right ankle, the team announced Tuesday.
An MRI exam performed in Charlotte, N.C., displayed no structural damage and the Warriors said Curry will be re-evaluated in two weeks.
New York Knicks guard Tim Hardaway Jr., the team’s second-leading scorer, will be sidelined for at least two weeks because of a “stress injury” in his lower left leg, the team announced.
A stress injury means Hardaway has either a stress reaction or a stress fracture, with the latter being more serious. Based on information received from medical experts, the New York Post reported that a stress reaction could sidelined a player for two to six weeks, while a stress fracture could keep a player out for two months.
San Antonio Spurs All-Star small forward Kawhi Leonard still doesn’t know when he will make his season debut. But it could occur later this week.
The soft-spoken Leonard has missed the team’s first 24 games due to a quadriceps injury and said he is feeling good during his first interaction with reporters since Sept. 25.
