Warriors’ Steph Curry says he will play in Game 4 of NBA Finals vs. Celtics

After scrambling for a loose ball in the fourth quarter of Game 3 against the Boston Celtics, Steph Curry appeared to suffer an injury.

While fighting for the ball, Boston’s Al Horford landed on Curry’s left leg. With the Celtics’ holding a commanding lead after a dominant fourth quarter, Curry checked out of the contest.

Despite a potential unspecified injury, Curry confirmed he would play in Game 4 of the NBA Finals with the Warriors trailing 2-1. Before Game 4 on Thursday, Curry told members of the media he would play on Friday night in Boston.

I’m going to play. That’s all I know right now.
