Less than 30 minutes later and the official word of his knee injury was widely reported on social media.
The good news about Curry's prognosis? The knee injury he suffered in the Golden State Warriors-Houston Rockets' Game 4 on Sunday is not season-ending.
The bad news? The Curry-less defending champion Warriors still have to defeat James Harden and the Rockets to win their first round series, which Golden State currently leads 3-1.
If the Warriors can do that, they'd then face the uphill battle of trying to defeat the Los Angeles Clippers, who you already know are jumping for joy hearing this news.
As long as the Clippers, who own a 2-1 lead on the Portland Trail Blazers, handle their business, they'll be up against the Warriors without the two-time MVP.
To keep it 100, the Clippers should beat the Warriors without Curry and it'd be an embarrassment if they didn't. But then again, this is the same Clippers squad that lost a commanding 3-1 lead to the Rockets in last year's playoffs.
Let's see if Warriors reserves like Shaun Livingston and Ian Clark can hold it down for Chef Curry in his absence, buying him enough time to return to the playoffs.
Even if it happens, the chances for a Warriors repeat is bleak now. Tough break for Dub Nation.
