Stephen Curry: Golden State Warriors guard set to miss another week after MRI reveals inflammation in tailbone

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr revealed, prior to Tuesday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers, that Stephen Curry would be out for another week after the MRI revealed inflammation in the tailbone.

"This is going to be a little bit longer than we thought and hoped," Kerr said.

He further added that the former two-time MVP would be re-evaluated in another week, which means he would miss the next three games - at Sacramento, vs. Hawks, vs. Bulls - in addition to already being ruled out against the 76ers.

Curry injured his tailbone, a week earlier, against the Rockets in Houston.

After that game, Kerr said "he's going to be fine" but since then, Curry has missed the team's two road games in Memphis.

In 39 games this season, the 3-time champion has put up averages similar to his unanimous MVP season with 29.0 points, 6.2 assists, and 5.3 rebounds on 47.5% shooting from the field and 40.8% from beyond the arc.
