The Golden State Warriors will reportedly be without All-NBA guard Stephen Curry for “a few weeks” after he suffered a shoulder injury in a loss to the Indiana Pacers Wednesday night, according to ESPN. 

Curry injured his left shoulder, and The Athletic reported that the injury is keeping him sidelined. The Warriors will reevaluate their star point guard in two weeks. 

The injury occurred when Curry was attempting a steal against a Pacers player and reached out his left arm. Curry immediately clutched his shoulder. Curry left the floor and headed straight to the locker room.
