Steve Kerr: There's 'no way' Steph Curry is playing in first round

Golden State All-Star guard Stephen Curry has a grade two sprain of the medial collateral ligament in his left knee and will be sidelined 3 weeks, the National Basketball Association champions said Saturday, March 24.

"There's no way he's playing in the first round", Kerr told reporters."There's no way".

This is great news for Golden State as it means they should enter the playoffs later this season in good form despite the fact they're without most of their big four members of Curry, Durant, Green, and Klay Thompson over the past couple of games due to injuries. His long-term health is vital to Golden State's postseason success and even without Curry, the Warriors likely have enough talent to advance to the second round.

Curry suffered the injury in his first game in over two weeks, against the Atlanta Hawks on Friday, having recently been sidelined after re-aggravating an ankle issue that has forced him to miss 21 games this campaign.

"I feel like I'm disappointed for Steph mostly tonight, we'll see how long he has to be out, but we'll have guys coming back in the next couple weeks and we've got enough and we can push forward".

We must be mentally strong and we have no other choice but to play our best football on Tuesday". "The first 20 minutes belonged to the Spanish, after that we played well", said Kroos.

Last year, Durant missed five weeks with an MCL sprain in his left knee.

The Warriors are now dealing with a variety of injuries.

Stephen Curry can't seem to catch a break this season. Draymond Green returns today while Kevin Durant eyes a return next week.

The catch being, of course, that Curry is ready in time for a potential Western Conference Final showdown.
