Golden State Warriors fans had been shaking since Wednesday, the day of the game against Indiana.
Not because of their almost anecdotal defeat against the Pacers (125-119), but about Stephen Curry.
The four-time NBA champion injured his left shoulder in the third quarter while trying to take the ball from Jalen Smith.
Result of the MRI taken this Thursday: “a subluxation of the left shoulder” according to a press release from the Warriors.
Golden State's Steph Curry is expected to miss "a few weeks" with his left shoulder injury, sources tell ESPN.

What to worry about a potential long-term absence for the leader of Golden State.
"A timetable for his return will be provided in the coming days", simply announces his frankness.
According to ESPN and the very well-informed Adrian Wojnarowski, Stephen Curry should be absent from the courts for "a few weeks".
A detrimental absence for the NBA title holders, already far from their usual standards in this first third of the season (10th in the Western Conference with 14 wins for 15 losses) “If (Curry) is forfeited, of course it will be harder , Warriors coach Steve Kerr warned after the game against Indiana.
But you have to persevere, keep playing and fighting.
If we are in good health, we feel capable of beating anyone.
The 34-year-old point guard, MVP of the last NBA Finals last June, was still the Warriors' best player since the start of the season with nearly 30 points per game and an impressive three-point shooting percentage. (43.4%).
Either way, he will be greatly missed by the Warriors.
