Stephen Curry injury update: will Warriors star play the Pistons?

Stephen Curry didn’t look like he was in much pain as he set the Cavaliers ablaze Thursday night.

The Warriors star, who has been dealing with a hip injury, scored 40 points in Golden State’s 104-89 win over Cleveland. He had 20 points in the fourth quarter alone, and the Warriors outscored the Cavs 36-8 in the period to secure the victory.

Golden State will enter the second game of a set in a row after winning nine of its last 10 games. The Warriors will face the Pistons in Detroit on Friday night, but will their MVP candidate be available to play?

Here are the latest updates on Curry’s status.

Will Stephen Curry play the Pistons?

During his postgame media availability Thursday, Curry admitted that his hip was still bothering him and noted that he would receive an evaluation from the medical team.

Curry suffered a concussion to his left hip Tuesday against the Nets after facing Brooklyn star James Harden and taking command.

It was officially listed as questionable heading into Thursday’s contest and was later updated to probable.

“That charge really pissed me off a bit, so I’m trying to deal with it a little bit,” Curry said. “Then we’ll see how it feels when I wake up.”

After the showdown with the Pistons on Friday, the Warriors will travel back to the Chase Center to fight the Raptors on Sunday.

Across 15 games, Curry is averaging 29.5 points, 6.5 assists, 6.1 rebounds and 1.7 steals per game on 46.3 / 41.9 / 95.8 split shots (field goals / 3s / free throws). He is currently on track to break his own record for triples in a single season.
