Stephen Curry Leaves Court Before Tip-Off vs. Hornets Due to Illness

Publish date:

Stephen Curry left the court before tip-off against the Hornets on Saturday night because he was "not feeling well," the Warriors announced

It was a strange scene just before the Warriors were set to take on the Hornets in North Carolina. Curry was fully dressed in uniform and set to play in the game when he can be seen walking off the court to the locker room with a member of the Warriors staff. 

After the 102-100 loss, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Curry felt ill during the pregame warmups and saw the Hornets team doctor before he was eventually ruled out. Kerr also said that Curry has not been placed in the NBA's health and safety protocols. 

Curry is averaging 29.9 points, 5.4 rebounds and 6.2 assists in his 30 games played this season. The North Carolina native was also just named a Western Conference starter in this year's All-Star Game.
