How’s that for a click-bait headline?

Except, not really. Stephen Curry really was assigned to the G-league temporarily. The Warriors released a statement on Monday morning.

This was done, in part to the fact that Curry needs to be in more game-like situations as he returns from a broken bone in his left hand. The star point guard was supposed to make a return to the NBA court on March 1, but plans seemingly changed. So this isn’t exactly “how you gonna get fired on your day off” level of concern.

But apparently, his G-league stint did not last more than a couple of hours, or the length of one scrimmage game.

Well, that escalated quickly.
