Oakland, CA – Golden State Warriors guard  Steph Curry will be out for at least two weeks with a sprained medial collateral ligament (MCL) in his right knee.

Curry was submitted to an MRI on Monday morning, which revealed a Grade One MCL sprain in his right knee.

“Warrios guard Stephen Curry underwent an MRI this morning that revealed a Grade 1 MCL sprain in his right knee. He will be re-evaluated in two weeks,” read the statement made by the Warriors Public Relations.

Curry suffered the injury during Game 4 of the playoff series against the Houston Rockets. The 28-year-old guard had suffered an ankle injury during Game 1 of the same series, which kept him off the court for Game 2.

Draymond Green revealed that Curry teared up after being injured . “He was shook up; he was crying,” Green said. “I just told him, ‘Hold your head up. It’ll be all right. But then get the (expletive) out of here.’ We got you. Get out of here.”

Should the Warriors get pass the Rockets in the first round of the playoffs, the potential impact could come during the second-round match up against either the Clippers or Trail Blazers.

If all goes well during his healing time, Curry should be ready for the Conference Finals, on May 17.
