Warriors shrug off gruesome Curry injury in win


//

The Golden State Warriors have shrugged off a gruesome finger injury to Stephen Curry to take a commanding 2-0 lead in its series against the Houston Rockets.

Curry was immediately taken to the Warriors' locker room to have treatment in the first quarter on a dislocated ring finger on his left hand, before returning as the Warriors ran out 115-109 winners at Oracle Arena.

Following the game, Curry, who struggled shooting the ball with just 6-of-16 from the field, admitted that he was lucky to avoid a break.

"It hurts but it's alright," the two-time MVP told reporters.

"Didn't break anything. Fortunate, and some higher power's looking out for me on that one.

"Just gotta deal with pain and hopefully, before Saturday (Game 3) that goes away and will be fine."

Despite Curry's off shooting night, the Warriors' other All-Stars picked up the slack, with Kevin Durant continuing his fine form with 29 points, while Draymond Green had an excellent all-round game with 15 points, 12 rebounds, seven assists and two steals.

Curry was not the only star to come out of the game with an injury, with Houston Rockets star James Harden suffering a severe eye injury in the first quarter.

Harden was forced to leave the court and missed almost 10 minutes of game time after being poked in the eye by Green during a rebounding attempt.

The reigning MVP returned and finished with severely bloodshot eyes and finished with 29 points on 9-of-19 shooting, but admitted that he struggled with his vision for the remainder of the night.

"I can barely see, but just tried to go out there and do what I can to help my teammates," Harden told reporters.

"It's pretty blurry right now so hopefully it gets better day by day."

Harden and the Rockets will be hoping to avoid the dreaded 0-3 hole with a Game 3 win in Houston on Sunday AEST.
