Stephen Curry underwent surgery on his broken left hand and the Golden State Warriors said he will miss at least three months but is expected to make a full recovery.

The Warriors announced Curry had undergone surgery Friday morning. The surgery was performed by Dr. Steven Shin at the Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute in Los Angeles. An update on his progress is planned after three months.

Specialists examined a CT scan Curry had Thursday, a day after the two-time MVP broke his non-shooting hand while falling to the court during the third quarter of a 121-110 home loss to the Phoenix Suns.

Curry was injured while driving to his left as he was defended by Kelly Oubre Jr. and with big man Aron Baynes standing in the paint. Curry leapt with the ball then came down head first, landing awkwardly on his hands as he tried to brace himself. Baynes then landed on Curry’s left hand.
