Golden State is expecting no further update Thursday, but it hopes to know Friday whether Curry will require surgery and how much time he might miss. Warriors head coach Steve Kerr won’t have media availability until more is known about Curry’s injury. The typical recovery for a broken hand is five to eight weeks, but it can take longer if the person requires surgery. Per a source, the Warriors are bracing for Curry to miss at least a month.
“I’m fine, thanks for asking,” Curry said Saturday night. Of course the accident ended in typical Steph way: with a selfie taken with the California Highway Patrol officers, which was posted on Instagram with a reminder to wear your seat belts. What Kerr meant, by calling Curry a unicorn, was that he’s that elusive magical creature that appears only in fantasies. And while NBA general managers may search far and wide for “a Curry” they probably never will find one.

The hustle, the intensity, changing ends of the floor and the shot-making he exhibited during that stretch and really most of our season was a huge reason for our record.
Will the Chicago Bulls front office be able to travel to Orlando to scout players? — @chisportupdates, via Twitter The last time I checked on this with the league, I was told no. It’s why this is such an unprecedented and difficult time for these eight teams. It’s such a competitive disadvantage to essentially not be part of the league as it resumes play.
Another impressive game for Deni Avdija of Maccabi Tel Aviv today, this time in a win over Hapoel Jerusalem: 15 PTS, 6 REBS, 4 AST and 4 STL in 30 MIN while shooting 6-of-8 from 2 and 1-of-4 from 3. Played a fair amount on the ball at 6-9. Fun to watch in grab-and-go situations. pic.twitter.com/QFqjS7SZ6D
