Four-time NBA champion Stephen Curry, who has been out since suffering a partial dislocation of his left shoulder, will be out for at least two more weeks, the defending champion Golden State Warriors announced on Saturday.

The Warriors said Curry recently underwent a medical that found he was "making good progress" in his recovery and "will be re-evaluated again in two weeks." Curry will only be able to begin rehabilitation once the pain subsides.
The 34-year-old star will miss at least six games over the next two weeks, starting with Sunday's home showdown against Memphis.
The two-time regular season MVP, who was injured Dec. 14 at Indianapolis, has missed his team's last four games.
The leader has already suffered long-term injuries, including one to the left hand in 2019 which then required an operation and a recovery of several months.
The Warriors, who are making a start to the season far from their usual standards, will therefore have to do without their playmaker, the team's top scorer and passer with 30 points and 6.8 assists per game.
