Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry suffered a gnarly finger injury in the team’s postseason series against the Houston Rockets. Curry’s left middle finger was badly dislocated and during Game 4 on Monday, May 6, the finger showed little sign of improvement.
While Curry was able to suit up for the Warriors, but the team suffered a loss as the Rockets tied the series at 2-2. Of course, Curry’s photo was still very jacked up.
Courtside photos showed just how damaged Curry’s finger continues to be.
