OAKLAND -- Stephen Curry lasted 25 minutes Friday night before limping out of another game.
He was diagnosed with a sprained left MCL and did not return after sustaining the injury.
Curry came up limping after center JaVale McGee, leaping for a rebound, tumbled backward into his lower legs with 3:09 remaining in the third quarter of the Warriors-Hawks game at Oracle Arena.
Immediately, the sellout crowd let out a collective groan.
Curry, his face a mask of dejection, headed for the bench, where he was examined by Warriors physical performance specialist Chelsea Lane. The two then headed into the locker room.
Curry scored a team-high 29 points and grabbed seven rebounds before leaving the game. This was his first appearance since March 8, when he tweaked his surgically repaired right ankle, causing him to miss six games.
Curry has missed 21 of the team's 71 games. He will undergo an MRI on Saturday, and his status beyond that is yet to be determined.
