Warriors confirm Chris Paul requires surgery after ‘terrible’ injury vs. Pistons

Before leaving with injury Paul had eight points, six rebounds and four assists.

The Golden State Warriors (17-18) delivered a hard blow to their roster as they confirmed that Chris Paul will undergo surgery due to a left-hand fracture suffered during their recent victory over the Detroit Pistons (3-32) at Chase Center. This unfortunate incident occurred as the Warriors secured a 113-109 win on Friday night.

Paul, at 38, will go under the knife next week, anticipating a recovery period spanning a few weeks. The veteran player showcased his value in the game, contributing eight points, six rebounds, and four assists in just 23 minutes before exiting with the injury. Warriors’ head coach, Steve Kerr, expressed deep sympathy for Paul during the postgame press conference, highlighting the tough road ahead for the player who has previously undergone hand surgeries in his extensive NBA career.

Expressing his concern, Kerr stated, “That’s tough, I feel so bad for Chris, I know he’s had a couple of hand surgeries before I believe, maybe on the other hand.” The coach received the news after the game and acknowledged the challenge the team now faces in Paul’s absence. Kerr added, “So I feel terrible for Chris, and obviously guys will step up and be ready to play. We’ve got to hold down the fort without him.”

Despite the setback, Kerr emphasized that losing Chris Paul is not the only challenge the Warriors are grappling with. Paul, renowned for his contribution, particularly leading the second unit, played a pivotal role in the team’s dynamics. Kerr acknowledged the void left by Paul, describing him as an “all-time great” whose presence significantly eased the game for the team, especially in moments when Stephen Curry is off the court.

The Warriors, currently one game below .500, are navigating a complex season, dealing not only with injuries but also facing the indefinite suspension of Draymond Green. The young players, including Jonathan Kuminga, reportedly express concerns about the team’s trajectory, indicating a challenging period for the Warriors in the ongoing NBA season.
