NBA observers are on the edge of their seats awaiting Stephen Curry’s MRI results after the Warriors guard injured his knee yesterday.

You can probably recline – for a few hours at least.

Chris Broussard of ESPN:

I wouldn’t be surprised if the Warriors know the result sooner, and that means it could always leak before an official announcement. So, don’t sit so far back that you fall asleep and miss the news.

This is the most anticipated medical test result in recent memory. Curry is the best player on the best team, and an extended absence would GREATLY affect the playoff picture. This could open the door for the Spurs, Cavaliers, Thunder or Clippers – or preserve Golden State’s frontrunner status.
