Golden States Warriors All-Star guard Stephen Curry suffered a sprained ligament in his left foot after colliding with Boston Celtics’ Marcus Smart on Wednesday night during the Celtics 110-88 win over Golden State.

Following further consultation with Dr. Richard Ferkel, a renowned foot specialist, Curry is expected to return around the start of the Western Conference playoffs, sources told ESPN.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr and forward Draymond Green were unhappy with the incident and called the act “dangerous” and “unnecessary.”

“I thought it was a dangerous play. I thought Marcus dove into Steph’s knee,” Kerr said. “That’s what I was upset about. Lot of respect for Marcus, he’s a hell of a player, gamer, competitor. I coached him in the World Cup a few summers ago. We talked after the game, we’re good. I thought it was a dangerous play, just let him know.”

Smart himself claimed that he was simply chasing the ball.

“I saw the ball, I dove for the ball, trying to make a play,” the Celtics guard said post-game. “Unfortunately, that occurred.”

An MRI was conducted overnight and it revealed Curry’s. There’s no structural damage and he is very lucky to have avoided serious injury, sources added.

In Steph’s absence, Kerr has to rely on Jordan Poole, Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins, and Chris Chiozza to retain their current position in the Western Conference standings.
