Curry immediately subbed out of the game and headed back to the locker room, forcing offseason acquisition Willie Cauley-Stein to shoot the free throws.

No official timeline has been announced yet but Warriors reporter Kerith Burke of NBC Sports Bay Area had more info:
I got more info from Bob Myers. He said Steph Curry will have a CT scan to determine if surgery is next the next step. A cast on Steph's broken left hand could be an option too. Estimated time of recovery unknown right now.- Kerith Burke (@KerithBurke) October 31, 2019
With Curry's unfortunate injury, the injury list increases for the reigning Western Conference champions.
