Steph Curry is brand new to himself with an injury, and the Warriors star is playing it safe in terms of his recovery.

The 34-year-old suffered a left shoulder subluxation last week against the Indiana Pacers, and Curry provided an update for fans on Tuesday during the TNT broadcast of Golden State’s 132-94 loss to the New York Knicks.

“It’s interesting only because I haven’t had a shoulder injury like that. So it’s a wait-and-see approach,” Curry said from the sidelines at Madison Square Garden. “I’m still early in the healing process, so I’m nowhere near even picking up a basketball yet.”

“It will take a few weeks. I’m thinking around New Year’s and I’ll start marking the schedule from there.”

The Warriors are 1-4 on the road and have lost two of their last three contests without Curry.

He is expected to miss at least a few weeks with the injury, although there is no exact time frame for his return. And with Golden State trying to defend its NBA title, it’s safe to say the team needs its superstar sooner rather than later.

But the Warriors know they just have to get it in Playoff, opening round and regular season record aside, their championship experience can rule from there.

Still, they’ll need a fully healthy Curry if they want to have a chance at making the NBA Finals, and his slow, measured recovery is surely best for the team.
