Stephen Curry will be assessed after he suffered injury in the 116-100 loss to Celtics.

Golden State Warriors star guard Stephen Curry will be assessed after suffering injury in loss against Celtic.

The Warriors suffered 116-100 loss to the Celtics on Wednesday night in Game 3 of the NBA Finals. But on the top of their minds after falling behind 2-1 in the

Curry was on the floor for a few minutes, writhing in pain before he came up with a noticeable limp.

“I saw him getting dove on,” Warriors forward Draymond Green said. “So I picked up my foul pushing people off him because he’s screaming at the bottom of the pile.”

“Obviously, in some pain, but I’ll be all right,” Curry said. “We’ll see how it responds. Not much other to say. I don’t feel like I’ll miss a game. Take advantage of these next 48 hours to get ready.”

As Curry entered and exited the news conference room after the game, he walked gingerly, trying to avoid putting any real pressure on his left foot.

Curry said the injury felt close to what he suffered against the visiting Celtics in March, when he sprained his foot on a similar play involving Marcus Smart. That play resulted in Curry straining his left foot — the same foot affected in Game 3 — and missing the last month of the regular season. Wednesday’s injury, Curry said, felt less severe.

“[Horford is] a big body, obviously,” Curry said. “I haven’t seen the play, so I don’t know if it could have been avoided or not. I was in that situation with Marcus back in the Bay, and you just want to get your foot out of there. That’s all I was trying to do at that point, knowing the position I was in. Like I said, for what I feel like, it’s not as bad. So hopefully, it responds well over the next two days.”

“We’ll know more tomorrow,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said with a stern tone.

Losing Curry, even for just one game, would be detrimental to the Warriors’ title hopes. Even a banged-up Curry wouldn’t bode well for Golden State.
