With the Golden State Warriors reeling, should Stephen Curry sit out the season or try to make a push for a return later this season?

It’s been a disastrous start to the season for the Golden State Warriors, all things considered. The latest of the unfortunate events has to be the broken hand that Stephen Curry suffered in a recent game.

In a game against the Phoenix Suns, Curry took an awkward fall and broke his left hand after colliding with Aron Baynes. As soon as he hit the ground, you can tell something was wrong with the way Curry was grabbing his wrist in pain and with a level of concern visible in his face.

One week ago, the Warriors announced that he underwent surgery and would be missing at least three months. But now, we’ve learned that Curry expects to return at some point this season – likely during March.

It was reported a few days ago that Curry would miss the remainder of the season, but as it turns out that report turned out to be a bit off base.

Nevertheless, even if Curry returns in March, it won’t be enough to save this team’s season. The injury is still bad news for the Warriors, who are dealing with numerous key injuries at the moment.

Draymond Green has missed time with a finger injury (though recently made his return), and the team is still expected to be without Klay Thompson, who is recovering from a torn ACL injury, for the remainder of the season.

Steph Curry, however, was supposed to be one of the anchors for the Warriors this season and with him out for even a bit of the season, the future doesn’t look overly bright for the San Francisco team. It wouldn’t be a huge surprise if Steph did decide to sit out for the rest of the season if the team continues to plummet like it is.

The big question that remains, though, is whether or not Steph Curry should return even if he is healthy in March? Would it be worth it?
