Kerry is expected to miss several games, Washington shares a particularly dismal record - voila! sport


The star who injured his shoulder will undergo an MRI, he may not return until after the champion's foreign trip. The Wizards scored 98 points in the paint from Denver - an NBA record

With all due respect to the loss against Indiana - its fourth loss in the last five games - there is something that concerns Golden State even more: the situation of Stephen Curry.

Two minutes to the end of the third quarter, the star tried to steal a ball from Jaylen Smith, injured his shoulder and ran to the bench.

He was then taken to the dressing room, for further treatment.

According to ESPN, the great guard was in good spirits at the end of the game, but rarely used his left hand.

"I checked with him really quickly, but we didn't have a chance to go into the depth of things," said Steve Kerr about the star's condition.

"Steph always has an optimistic outlook on life, so he was in good spirits. He'll have an MRI tomorrow."

According to reports in the United States, Kerry will fly with his friends to Philadelphia, but is expected to miss several games, possibly the entire road trip of the Warriors, which will end on December 26 in Memphis.

Before the injury, Kerry was wonderful as usual when he scored 38 points in 30 minutes (11 of 19 from the field, 11 of 11 from the line), but it was not enough for the Warriors, who continue to fall.

"He was spectacular," Kerr gloated.

"He put us on his shoulders, he was just brilliant."

The champion has a dismal away record of 13:2 this season, and Kerry's injury joined that of Andrew Wiggins who missed several games.

"It's not an easy time and it will become more difficult if Steph misses a few games," admitted Kerr.

"You have to keep your head up and keep fighting, it's a long season and I'm convinced that when we're healthy, we can beat any team."

Washington continues its decline, with an eighth straight loss - its worst streak since 2012. The Wizards surrendered 141:128 at the hands of Denver, when they could not find answers to the excellent Nikola Jokic (43 points, 17 of 20 from the field, 14 rebounds) and fell to a balance of 18: 11.

Without Bradley Beal and Kristaps Porzingis, Danny Avdia provided 9 points (4 of 7 from the field), 6 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 steals, but his team displayed a terrible defense that allowed the opponent no less than 98 (!) points in the paint - an NBA record. Since they started counting such data in the league (in 1996).

The previous one was also held by the Wizards (96, March 2021).

"They played so easy," admitted losing coach Wes Anseld, after his team allowed the Nuggets to shoot 75 percent to 2 (50-of-67).

The bad news for Washington is that they still have five consecutive road games left in the West, and at the end of this journey, it can only be assumed that their distance from the tenth place in the East (which leads to the play-ins) will be greater than now (2.5 games).


Rumors from around the league

* Not only the Los Angeles Lakers - Phoenix and Atlanta are also interested in Bojan Bogdanovic from Detroit.

The Suns were also mentioned in the context of John Collins, Kyle Kuzma, Eric Gordon and KJ Martin.

* The Lakers also approached Washington regarding Kyle Kuzma, but the Wizards are not willing to give him up.

Another player in the crosshairs is Cam Reddish, who lost his place in Tom Thibodeau's rotation in New York.

* Biakov Flatel from San Antonio is interested in both the representatives of Los Angeles, as well as Golden State.

* Derek Rose is in the crosshairs of Dallas, who already added another veteran quarterback a few days ago - Kemba Walker.
