The Golden State Warriors’ fortunes have deteriorated after they appeared to be settling in. Following a convincing home victory over the Boston Celtics in an NBA Finals rematch, the Warriors hit the road and have been soundly defeated in two straight games, first by the Bucks and then by the Indiana Pacers.
Stephen Curry (shoulder) will not require surgery but will be out for about a month, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.
Curry’s initial report suggested he’d be back in three weeks, but Charania’s update suggests he’ll be out for a little longer.
Curry will be re-evaluated in a couple of weeks, at which point more information on his recovery timeline may become available, according to Charania.
Expect Jordan Poole to take over in the backcourt alongside Klay Thompson, with Donte DiVincenzo expected to play more. Curry’s revised schedule indicates a return date in mid-January.

Philadelphia has now won three straight games as the team’s health improves and key players return. With this group, it’s always about the process, and Joel Embiid has returned to MVP form as the Sixers have won their last three home games by double digits.
According to Ky Carlin of USA Today, Philadelphia coach Doc Rivers stated that Maxey (foot) is still unable to practice and believes he is a “few weeks away” from returning.
Maxey hasn’t played since November 18 due to a left foot fracture. In his absence, Shake Milton, De’Anthony Melton, and Furkan Korkmaz have all seen extended playing time. Based on Rivers’ comments, Maxey is unlikely to return to the court until the beginning of 2023.
