Well, Golden State’s timeline allows Curry room to return by the playoffs.
Stephen Curry, who exited Wednesday’s game vs. Boston with 4:09 remaining in the second quarter due to a left foot injury, underwent an MRI on Wednesday night.
The MRI indicated that Curry suffered a sprained left foot ligament. He will be re-evaluated in two weeks. pic.twitter.com/ltCdknoGb8

The playoffs begin in four weeks.
Golden State has championship upside with Curry. But his special shooting is essential. His recovery will define the Warriors as a title contender.
The good news: Curry has already developed strong chemistry with most of his teammates. Once he gets healthy and conditioned, he should hit the ground running upon his return.
Golden State (47-23) is third in the Western Conference, one game behind the Grizzlies (48-22). So, Curry’s absence could mean facing Memphis in a potential second-round series without home-court advantage. But Draymond Green isn’t worried about seeding. He guaranteed a championship, regardless. (Up 3.5 games on the fourth-place Jazz, the Warriors probably won’t slip from the No. 2 or 3 seed.)
