Source: Warriors hoping Steph returns after All-Star break originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Steph Curry is expected to miss at least the next five games, and the Warriors are “hoping” he can return shortly after the NBA All-Star break ends on Feb. 23, a league source told NBC Sports Bay Area on Sunday morning.

Though the extent of the injury to Curry’s left knee area still is being evaluated, the Warriors already are planning to proceed without him over the 10 days remaining before the break, according to the source.

The two-time MVP sustained the injury in the third quarter of the Warriors’ 119-113 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday.

It occurred when the right knee of Dallas guard McKinley Wright IV banged into the side of Curry’s left knee. Curry limped off the court into the locker room and did not return.

Curry has appeared in 38 of Golden State’s 53 games this season, averaging 29.4 points, 6.4 assists and 6.3 rebounds.

It is anticipated that fourth-year guard Jordan Poole, who has yet to miss a game this season, will move into the starting lineup at point guard.

A more definitive diagnosis and prognosis of Curry’s status will be released later Sunday, but more likely on Monday.
