Stephen Curry underwent surgery on his broken hand in Los Angeles on Friday, the Golden State Warriors announced. The two-time NBA MVP was hurt during his team's game against the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday, as he suffered a bad fall while going for a layup during the third quarter.

 

Golden State plan to provide a further update on Curry, whose hand became caught under Suns big man Aron Baynes, in three months - meaning he is unlikely to play again until February 2020.

Curry went straight to the locker room with a dejected look on his face. He had nine points, six assists and five rebounds for the Warriors when he left the game. The 31-year-old has played in only four games this season, averaging 20.3 points and 6.5 assists.

 

His absence is a further blow to the Warriors, who lost Kevin Durant during the offseason and are also without long-term absentee Klay Thompson.
