Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry to wear a protective arm sleeve in Game 5

The NBA’s MVP and Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is expected to wear a protective sleeve on his right arm in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals. Curry utilized a sleeve on his arm to protect the elbow injury in the team’s practice Wednesday morning according to ESPN.

“It’s just the impact of the fall,” Curry said. “My whole right side took the brunt of that force, and my head. It’s basically like a bruise all the way up and down your body that you’ve just got to deal with.”

Curry jumped into Trevor Ariza’s fake but the point guard awkwardly fell and crashed his body to the floor. Observers were worried about Curry’s possibility of suffering a concussion as the medical staff from both teams attended to he before he went to Golden State locker room. Curry passed the test for concussion and he returned to the game in the third quarter.

With the Houston Rockets winning Game 4, the Warriors want to end the the best-of-seven series at home tonight. Curry averages 29.4 points, 4.7 rebounds and 6.4 assists for the warriors in the playoffs.

Meanwhile, NBA president of basketball operations Rod Thorn announced that Dwight Howard’s flagrant foul-1 from Monday’s Game 4 victory over the Warriors will stand as called, and will not be upgraded to a flagrant-2. As a result, the center will not be suspended for one game. The Rockets will go at full force against the warriors in Game 5.
