Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors will miss at least three months of the NBA season as he recovers from surgery on his broken left hand, the team has announced.
Two days after Curry, 31, sustained an injury during his team’s game against the Phoenix Suns, the Warriors' PR department released an official update on his situation.

Shared on the department’s Twitter page, the statement read:
"Golden State Warriors' Guard Stephen Curry, who suffered a broken left hand/second metacarpal with 8:31 remaining in the third quarter of Wednesday’s game against the Phoenix Suns, underwent successful surgery this morning at the Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute in Los Angeles."

The Warriors added that Dr. Steven Shin performed Curry's surgery and that the famed Point Guard is expected to make a full recovery. "An update on his status will be provided in three (3) months," they said.
"I worry about the Steph that can't pick up Canon [his son]. You know, the Steph that can't toss Riley and Ryan [his daughters] around."
CBS News reported that Curry was injured during Wednesday night's game against the Suns. The two-time NBA MVP collided with a player from the other team and landed on his hands after falling headfirst in an attempt to brace himself.
To make matters worse, the Suns player fell on top of Curry's left hand. A clip of the fall making the rounds online show Curry clutching his wrist as he yells out in pain. Unfortunately, the Warriors eventually lost the game 121-110.
According to ESPN, the Warriors said earlier on Thursday that Curry had a CT scan on the injured hand and would have specialists take another look before deciding if surgery was the best option. Ultimately, they chose to go with surgery.
"I worry about the Steph that can't pick up Canon [his son]. You know, the Steph that can't toss Riley and Ryan [his daughters] around. The Steph that can't pass Ayesha [his wife] a pot because she asks. She asks him, 'Hey, can you grab that pot, I'm mixing?' That's the Steph I worry about. So it sucks."
"Like I've said before, you live that every day of your life, and that's the part that... that's tougher to me than anything," Green added.
Here’s wishing Steph Curry a speedy recovery.
