Steph Curry has been held off the court with a minor ankle injury. While Draymond was held off due to the team-imposed suspension for his on-court argument with Kevin Durant.
Curry spoke to the Associated Press about the effect the suspension would have on the relationship between KD and Draymond.
“They have a lot of equity built in their relationship,” Curry said. “They’ve won championships together. They’ve brought out the best in each other. Obviously, I don’t think they’ve had an incident to this level, but you don’t have the experiences that you’ve had and go through the journey that we’ve been on and let it be derailed by something like that.”
“We have the opportunity to do something extremely special this year,” Curry said. “There’s going to be ups and downs and bumps in the road, whether it’s self-inflicted or whether it’s from outside. At the end of the day, nothing should distract us from what our goal is.”
He also said that the team has worked out the problem between Green and Durant, adding that both players have shown class.
“I think the way we’ve handled it as a team, the way Draymond’s handled it, the way KD’s handled it, it’s been nothing but professionalism,” Curry said.
