The Golden State Warriors are going to be without Stephen Curry for potentially the rest of the regular season, and that’s going to open up around 15-20 shots per game for key rotational players.
Whether it was a dirty play or not can continue to be discussed, but the result stayed the same — Stephen Curry will be out indefinitely with a sprained foot.
The Golden State Warriors are going to need some players to step up with Stephen Curry sidelined, and those players’ careers might hang on how they do.
It’s a bummer for the Warriors, especially as they continue to try hanging onto the third seed in the Western Conference, but make no mistake, they are in a good position to avoid the play-in tournament because of the early-season work they put in.
While Curry missing time will brutal, as we’ve historically seen, it will open opportunity for role players to make their presence felt even greater. Also, Jordan Poole and Klay Thompson should be able to step up and create more.
With Curry out, many things will change and several players can show their worth. With that in mind, let’s dive into 3 players that might have their career hanging on whether or not they can make noise in the next month.
