Kevin Durant, who suffered from an Achilles heel injury will most likely sit out the entire season. Durant injured himself during the NBA 2018-19 finals.
Stephen Curry broke his left hand on October 30 (October 31 IST) during the Phoenix Suns vs Warriors game. Since then, Curry has been sidelined for three months. However, the NBA Champion has been seen practising his shots and could make his return in March. In an interview, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr had said that both Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson (ACL injury) have been restless and cannot wait to get back on the court. Before being injured, Stephen Curry was averaging at 20.3 points, 5 rebounds and 6.5 assists per game while shooting 40.9% from the field and making 100% from the free-throw line. The Warriors, who currently hold the worst record in the league, will miss the playoffs for the first time since 2014.
