Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry aggravates left shin in a blow out win against the LA Lakers, 109-88

Golden State Warriors’ star point guard Stephen Curry re-aggravated his left shin again, during a 109-88 blow out win against the LA Lakers on Tuesday night. According to Ethan Sherwood Strauss of ESPN, Curry’s shin made contact with Roy Hibbert’s leg as Curry went up to make a layup during the third quarter.

After making contact with Hibbert’s leg Curry was limping noticeably and a timeout came immediately from the Warriors bench. But the injury does not seem to be serious, as he made a return later in the game. Curry finished the night with 17 points on 6-of-13 shooting in 26 minutes  before being pulled for good with the Warriors up 30 points in the fourth quarter.

The Warriors will most likely monitor Curry the next few days, as it is the second time he has aggravated his left shin. There is a good chance that Curry will not play against the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday, as a pre-cautionary measure.
