Steph Curry suffers shoulder subluxation, out for weeks
Welp that will be several weeks out and, unless the young ones grow up fast, a BIG hole in the standings to overcome to get back to the playoffs.
I suppose it could have been worse? He should be back before All-Star Break, maybe sooner.
If the Warriors can hang around the edge of the Play-in, they will have a shot to make a run into the Playoffs and be the team no one wants to face. If they crater, we might be doing a Draft Lottery profile on Victor W.

4 weeks puts us right in the middle of that Jan 13- 19 hell road trip, so I am guessing they will bring Steph back Jan 22. That would be 17 games, 9 on the road. If they split the home games and lose all the road games, that would be 4-13 putting them at 18-28.
Last year, the Spurs got into the Play-in 10 games under .500. Two years back, SAS got in 6 games under .500. So 10 games under is not enough to rule out the Play-in, but it would be uphill, esp with so many teams bunched around the middle this year.
Interesting times ahead…
