The second surgery Steph Curry knew he needed on his broken left hand has happened.
Curry had surgery Friday to remove the pins that had been inserted in his hand, NBC Sports Bay Area's Logan Murdock confirmed through league sources.
This procedure doesn't come as a surprise. Curry told the media on Nov. 11 that he would need a second surgery at some point in December, and last Friday, he told NBC Sports Bay Area's Monte Poole that the surgery would happen within a week or two.
Curry is still on track to be re-evaluated Feb. 1.
The two-time MVP suffered the injury against the Suns on Oct. 30. In 19 games without Curry, the Warriors are 3-16.

Missing at least four months has been tough on Curry, as he told Poole last Friday.
“It’s just hardest on your competitive spirit,” Curry said. “When you get around basketball and get around the locker room with the guys, that’s the part I miss the most. And I love to play.
“Three months is -- and I’d only played three-and-a-half games -- just weird. It’s unfamiliar territory. I’m enjoying the downtime, because it was unheard of, in my experience, in the middle of a season. It’s just weird.”
