Basketball star Stephen Curry will miss at least the next two weeks for the Golden State Warriors as the most successful regular-season team in N.B.A. history looks to defend its league title. The reigning MVP of the league hurt his right knee in Game 4 of the Warriors' first-round playoff match-up against the Houston Rockets on Sunday, and an MRI showed a grade 1 sprain of his MCL, the Warriors announced Monday. Curry, who set a record for three-pointers made and led the league in scoring while propelling the Warriors to a historic 73-9 regular season record, will be re-evaluated in two weeks. That timetable suggests Curry will miss at least part of the Warriors' second-round match-up with either the Los Angeles Clippers or Portland Trail Blazers, if the Warriors can complete a series win over the Rockets. The Warriors lead the Rockets 3-1 in their best-of-seven series.
