LISTEN: Surgeon Describes Injury Stephen Curry Suffered

CBS New York/WFAN—April 25, 2016

CBS New York reports on the recent knee injury of Golden State Warriors' point guard Stephen Curry. According to the article, Curry has a Grade 1 MCL sprain and will miss the remainder of Golden State's first round playoff series.

Stephen J. O'Brien, MD, MBA, a sports medicine surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery, is featured in a clip of WFAN's Mike Francesa podcast that is included in the article. Dr. O'Brien explains, "The biggest problem with an MCL injury, Mike, is side to side movement. So in a (football) lineman with a brace, it's not a big deal. In a basketball player, you're taking away his game. He can only go north, south — not east, west."
