If you thought it's been a bad start to the season for the Golden State Warriors, it's only going to get worse.

According to NBA insider Ric Bucher, it's "unlikely" that former MVP Stephen Curry will play again this season, as his broken hand presents a more dire situation than originally believed.

Golden State lost Kevin Durant to free agency, Klay Thompson is coming back from a torn ACL, and now Curry is out with this troublesome fracture. If Bucher's report is true -- it's yet to be confirmed, folks! -- it's pretty much curtains for the Dubs this season.

That's far too much firepower to lose and remain competitive, period. Good luck, Draymond and D-Lo!

You knew the Warriors were going to be patient bringing Curry back. But this report is something else entirely. It would be a death knell for their season.

Tank mode for the Warriors is officially upon us!

In just four games this season, Curry averaged 20.3 points on 40.9 percent shooting from the field and 24.3 percent shooting from behind the arc, along with 6.5 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game. In so many ways, there's simply no replacing what he does on a basketball court. Even a three-month absence would have been crippling, but now, the boys from the Bay have to prepare for the absolute worst.
