The Warriors' rough start, which extended to 1-3 with Wednesday night's home loss to the Phoenix Suns, got worse during the third quarter when Phoenix center Aron Baynes landed on Curry while Baynes attempted to take a charge. Though Golden State announced before the final buzzer that Curry had broken his hand, it wasn't until Friday that we learned Curry would need surgery with an atypically long timetable before his return. The Warriors' PR department indicated Curry's status would be updated in three months, while ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Curry could need as long as four months to play without risk of reinjury.
So what now for Golden State, already struggling to replace departed Kevin Durant, Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston and injured Klay Thompson with young talent? What are the Warriors' options during what looks like a lost season?
