Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry left Wednesday’s game against the Phoenix Suns after an ugly fall.
The Warriors later announced that he suffered a broken left hand.
General manager Bob Myers told NBC Sports’ Kerith Burke that Curry will have a CT scan on Thursday to determine if surgery is necessary. His timeline to return is unclear.

The injury occurred when he collided with Suns center Aaron Baynes, who fell on top of Curry when he hit the floor.
The injury occurred in the midst of a brutal stretch for the Warriors, who watched the Suns go on a 21-0 run in a first quarter they ended with a 43-14 lead.

It's tanking time in Golden State. Sucks that Steph Curry reportedly broke his hand, but it could be for the best long-term if they stink and end up with a top prospect. https://t.co/JXDEMgDzI0

The Suns held an 83-54 lead when Curry left the game and went on to a 121-110 victory.
With Curry on the floor, they were already getting blown out against a franchise that they’ve dominated for five seasons that’s missing one of its top players in suspended center Deandre Ayton.
With a long-term injury for Curry, things are obviously only going to be tougher for Golden State.
Baynes apologises after Curry incident
Curry’s injury occurred on a play involving Australian center Baynes, who was traded to Phoenix after two successful seasons with the Boston Celtics.
Baynes landed on Curry after the latter attempted a layup.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr revealed Baynes had sought out the Warriors after the game to apologise for the incident.
“Aron Baynes came up after the game and wanted to know how was Steph was doing,” Kerr said after the game.
“He felt really bad.
“Just a random basketball play. Stuff happens."
Baynes, who has taken on a more minutes after starting Suns center DeAndre Ayton was suspended for 25 games, dominated against the Warriors.
The 32-year-old posted a monster stat line of 23 points, 13 rebounds, seven assists and three blocks, far and away his best game of the still-young NBA season.
