Warriors star Curry returns in Game 2 after dislocating finger
Stephen Curry briefly left the Golden State Warriors' Game-2 NBA playoff matchup against the Houston Rockets with a dislocated finger on Tuesday.
Warriors star Curry appeared to suffer the injury with a little more than eight minutes remaining in the first quarter when he attempted to knock the ball away from Clint Capela at the rim.
Curry walked back to the Warriors' bench before quickly heading back to the locker room during the Western Conference semi-final clash.
He underwent X-rays, which came back negative, and then returned to the game with five minutes to play in the opening period at Oracle Arena.
