Curry hobbled back to the locker room and would return for warmups at halftime only to be sent back to the locker room again. The reigning, defending NBA MVP looked devastated as he went back into the locker room the second time.

The Warriors went onto win Game 4 121-94 and now hold a 3-1 series lead over the Rockets, but the main concern right now is Curry who is set to undergo an MRI on Monday.
Following the game Curry’s teammate Draymond Green revealed that Steph was crying in the locker room after the injury. Via USA Today:
“He was shook up; he was crying,” the Warriors forward told USA TODAY Sports. “It’s pain. It’s wanting to be out there with your guys. He was quiet, so I said everything to him.
“I just told him, ‘Hold your head up. It’ll be all right. But then get the (expletive) out of here.’ We got you. Get out of here.”
