The injury happened in the third quarter when he drove to the net and was fouled by Aron Baynes. Curry flipped face first into the lane and Baynes fell backwards on top of the prone Curry, landing on his left hand.
Losing Curry for an extended period of time would be disastrous for a young Golden State team that's already struggling out of the gates.
There's a reasonable chance that the Warriors will be the West's worst team during Curry's absence.
The American playmaker guard of Warriors was sandwiched between two Phoenix Suns players while he was driving to the rim.
He had nine points, six assists and five rebounds in 21 minutes against Phoenix. It's unrealistic to expect the Warriors to thrive without Curry at the center of the offense, but Kerr doesn't have other options because the team is hard capped and unable to make roster upgrades.
X-rays confirmed the break, but there was no immediate word of how long he might be out of action. What's more, centers Kevon Looney and Willie Cauley-Stein have been both sidelined with injuries in the early going. He checked in for the first time at the 8:23 mark of the first quarter.

Here's everything we know about Curry's injury and the latest news on when he may return to the court.
Bird and the US women's basketball team play at Stanford on Saturday. Despite the fact that we don't now have a timetable on Curry's return, Golden State was facing an uphill climb to get back to the playoffs this season with him.
