Curry was attempting to shoot a three-pointer late in the third quarter against the Houston Rockets when he appeared to pick up enough momentum that he lost his balance when he landed.
He stumbled backward on a set of metal steps before landing hard on his rear.
Curry instantly looked like he was in serious pain and eventually sat out the fourth quarter after it was ruled that he suffered a tailbone contusion.

Head coach Steve Kerr said after the game that Curry was sore and there was a possibility that he would have to sit out Friday’s game as well.
Golden State handed the Rockets a franchise-record 18th straight loss and Curry had 18 points and went 2 for 11 from three-point range before sitting out.
