As a result of the collision, Curry should have shot two free throws, but he was escorted to the locker room and unable to do so, which, by rule, meant that he was disqualified from the rest of the game.
At the time he exited the contest, he was 3-for-11 from the field (1-for-7 from 3-point territory) and he’d only scored nine points in 21 minutes of action. The Suns went on to win the game, 121 to 110.
The Warriors have been struggling this season, and one of their key players suffering from a broken hand is literally the worst thing that could happen to them at this point.
