Curry out with the flu, not coro­n­avirus, War­riors say

SAN FRAN­CISCO >> War­riors guard Stephen Curry was di­ag­nosed with the flu Satur­day morn­ing but is not show­ing signs of the coro­n­avirus, ac­cord­ing to team physi­cian Dr. Robert Nied.

“This morn­ing Stephen Curry was di­ag­nosed with in­fluenza A by a pos­i­tive vi­ral test­ing,” Nied said via a team state­ment. “We have iden­ti­fied his prob­a­ble source con­tact who is not part of bas­ket­ball op­er­a­tions. He has no spe­cific risk fac­tors for COVID-19. He has the sea­sonal flu. We have be­gun treat­ment for Stephen and in­sti­tuted our team pro­to­col for in­fluenza ex­po­sure.”

As of now, there is no timetable for when he will be back in the War­riors’ lineup. On Thurs­day, Curry re­turned af­ter be­ing side­lined for four months with a bro­ken left hand. Af­ter one game, he was ruled out for Satur­day’s game against the 76ers with an ill­ness.

“I was with Steph yes­ter­day in prac­tice and also in Oak­land yes­ter­day af­ter­noon and he was fine,” head coach Steve Kerr said. “So he woke up this morn­ing feel­ing sick. I know his young son was sick for a cou­ple of days so he prob­a­bly got it from his son. But our doc­tors checked him out and it’s the ba­sic flu.”

Ear­lier this week, the NBA sent a memo di­rect­ing teams to take pre­cau­tions against the coro­n­avirus. Those pre­cau­tions in­clude play­ers fist-bump­ing in­stead of shak­ing hands with fans and avoid­ing tak­ing pens to sign au­to­graphs. It was also re­ported the league is con­sid­er­ing bar­ring me­dia from player locker rooms dur­ing this time.

Af­ter two con­firmed cases of the virus were re­ported in San Fran­cisco, the War­riors an­nounced on Fri­day that Satur­day night’s game against the 76ers at Chase Center will con­tinue as sched­uled. In a state­ment, they cau­tioned, “Any guest who is feel­ing sick, re­gard­less of their symp­toms, should not at­tend pub­lic events.”

Team doc­tors ad­dressed Golden State’s play­ers and coaches ear­lier in the week about pre­cau­tions they can take.

“It’s ab­so­lutely a con­cern,” Kerr said. “But I’m no ex­pert. I’m just like ev­ery­one else, just try­ing to learn about it. It’s a con­cern and we’re do­ing our job to come in and get ready for the game and play the game, and the league will tell us what to do next.”
