The injury occurred when Curry fell after he collided with Suns center Aron Baynes, the former Celtic, who fell on top of Curry when he hit the floor in the third quarter.

Curry grimaced and clutched his wrist and hand as he left the floor for the locker room.
Curry will have a CT scan to determine if surgery is needed, according to Kerith Burke, Warriors reporter for NBC Sports Bay Area.
I got more info from Bob Myers. He said Steph Curry will have a CT scan to determine if surgery is next the next step. A cast on Steph's broken left hand could be an option too. Estimated time of recovery unknown right now.— Kerith Burke (@KerithBurke) October 31, 2019
The Warriors are off to a 1-3 start and already lost Curry's backcourt mate, Klay Thompson, before the season began as he recovers from a torn ACL suffered in Golden State's loss to Toronto in the NBA Finals last season.
The Boston Celtics visit the Warriors on Nov. 15, but it seems virtually guaranteed they won't see Curry.
