Oct. 31 (UPI) -- Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry suffered a broken left hand during Wednesday's 121-110 loss to the Phoenix Suns.

League sources told ESPN and the San Francisco Chronicle that Curry sustained a fracture in the second metacarpal, the bone in the hand below the index finger. He underwent a CT scan Thursday and the team hopes to know Friday if he will require surgery.

Curry posted an image of his injured hand to his Instagram story Thursday. The two-time NBA MVP waved his swelled and wrapped-up hand with the caption: "Appreciate all the love/texts/support all that. Be back soon!"

Curry broke his left hand during the third quarter against Phoenix when he attempted to drive past Suns center Aron Baynes. The All-Star guard had a hard fall on the court, and Baynes, who was called for a blocking foul, landed on his hand.

The Warriors are already without star guard Klay Thompson and center Kevon Looney. Thompson is recovering from a left ACL injury, and Looney is dealing with a neuropathic condition that will sideline him for at least three additional games.
