Golden State Warriors superstar Steph Curry is expected to miss the remainder of the regular season after suffering ligament damage in his left foot.
Golden State are 6/1 to win the NBA Championship outright and 3/1 to win the Western Conference, with Curry having sustained the injury during the 110-88 defeat to Boston Celtics on Wednesday.
The three-time champion went for a loose ball and then Celtics guard Marcus Smart landed on his foot as he challenged for the same ball.
Curry was forced off in the second quarter and there were fears he could face a significant stint on the sidelines, but scans have since revealed there is no fracture or significant ligament damage.
The latest reports suggest Curry will be out of action for around a month, meaning he may well be able to play in the first round of the play-offs as they are due to start on 16th April.
The Dubs are in third spot in the Western Conference with a 47-23 overall record with 12 games remaining.
The Warriors are battling out with Memphis for second seed in the West, with Phoenix Suns on course to take top spot, and they are just one game behind the Grizzlies.
However, Golden State may now face a fight to hold on to third place with Curry out of action for the remainder of the season.
The Warriors are three-and-a-half games ahead of both Utah Jazz and Dallas Mavericks immediately below them and they have a tough run of games in their remaining regular-season schedule.
