Baynes fell on top of Curry after hard collision

The injury occurred when he collided with Suns center Aaron Baynes, who fell on top of Curry when he hit the floor.

Curry grimaced in pain and clutched his left wrist before getting up and walking to the locker room. Curry also rolled his left ankle on the other end of the floor on defense before grabbing the rebound to start the fast break.

The injury occurred in the midst of a brutal stretch for the Warriors, who watched the Suns go on a 21-0 run in a first quarter they ended with a 43-14 lead.

The Suns held an 83-54 lead when Curry left the game and went on to a 121-110 victory. Reality was already sinking in for a Warriors franchise that compiled an 18-2 record against the Suns during its run of five consecutive Western Conference titles.

Bad to worse for Warriors

Golden State was off to a 1-2 start on the season that included a 141-122 home loss to the Los Angeles Clippers to christen the newly opened Chase Center and a 120-92 loss on the road to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

With Curry on the floor, they were already getting blown out against a franchise that they’ve dominated for five seasons that’s missing one of its top players in suspended center Deandre Ayton.

With a long-term injury for Curry, things are obviously only going to be tougher for Golden State.
