Steph Curry left the Warriors' game against the Houston Rockets on Wednesday with a tailbone contusion after falling in the bench area following a 3-point attempt to end the third quarter.

Curry was fading away from the shot and fell down on the short metal stairs next to the Rockets' bench.

The two-time NBA MVP was in immediate discomfort and stayed on the floor for a minute before walking gingerly to the Warriors' locker room.

Before leaving the game, Curry scored 18 points on 7-of-18 shooting from the field and 2-of-11 from 3-point range. He also had eight assists and five rebounds.

The Warriors can't afford to lose Curry for any amount of time if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive.

Curry has played in 39 of the Warriors' 41 games this season after missing the entire 2019-20 season with a hand injury.

The Warriors are off Thursday before playing a back-to-back against the Grizzlies in Memphis on Friday and Saturday.
