The Warriors took a big hit Wednesday night against the Pacers as Stephen Curry exited the game early after suffering a left shoulder injury.
Curry was hurt while trying to strip Jalen Smith on a drive. He reached in on Smith with 2:04 left in the third quarter and then withdrew his arm, shaking it in pain. He went to the locker room after the injury.
The Warriors later ruled him out for the remainder of the game.
Stephen Curry (left shoulder) will not return to tonight’s game.
