Sydel Curry was emotional upon learning her older brother, Stephen, was the NBA’s first unanimous MVP.

The problem was that the Elon volleyball player was in the middle of preparing for final exams.

“In my bathroom crying like I don’t have a presentation in 10 min lol,” Sydel tweeted. “Man I wish I was in the bay with my fam celebrating. This is amazin.”

The Curry family is expected to join Stephen today at his 2 p.m. press conference at Oracle Arena.

Family was one of the things Curry focused on at last year’s festivities. His voice cracked as he spoke to his father about how meaningful it was to follow in Dell’s footsteps.

“Congrats to my MVP @stephencurry30 on being named the leagues MVP for a second year in a row,” Curry’s wife, Ayesha, wrote on Instragram. “And unanimously at that… I am so proud of you my love. You deserve this.

Stephen Curry will not play in Game 3 against the Portland Trail Blazers and has “maybe a slight chance” of returning for Game 4, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Friday.

“He hasn’t practiced with us yet, so Game 3 tomorrow, he’s not going to play,” Kerr said on The Dan Patrick Show. “He’s getting better every day, but until he’s out on the floor with our team and scrimmaging and we’re seeing him move, and trainers say, ‘it’s a go,’ we’ll just keep doing what we’re doing. But no way tomorrow, and I would say maybe a slight chance on Monday if he gets great work in the next few days.”

Kerr on Thursday had left the door open to Curry returning for the Western Conference Finals as the series shifts to Portland. He said it was conceivable Curry could still test his sprained right knee before Game 3, practice Sunday and play in Game 4 on Monday.

Knee injury for Warriors’ Stephen Curry less serious than the one father Dell Curry is recovering from

Stephen Curry isn’t the only member of his family to be going through a knee injury, but the one to his father, Dell Curry, is far more serious than a Grade 1 MCL sprain.

Dell Curry told 1065 The END he fell last month while getting out of the shower at the Ritz-Carlton Cleveland as the Charlotte Hornets broadcaster was getting ready for the game against the Cavaliers, causing an injury worse than any he had during his entire playing career.

“I stepped out of the shower, leg slipped, there was water on the marble floor, my knee hit the doorknob,” Curry told the radio station last week. “I mean, perfect. I couldn’t do it again if I staged it. Shattered my patella tendon, tore the tendon.”

Curry said he tried to get up and fell back down before crawling to his phone and calling the Hornets’ team trainer and having to get into an ambulance.

“I knew something was wrong right away because of the pain I was feeling throughout my body,” Curry said. “Again, this is the most serious injury I’ve ever had. And then they told me three months. I didn’t believe them. I thought, ‘OK, I’m am ex-athlete. I’m in pretty good shape. I’ll cut that in half.’ No. Does not matter. It’s the knee, it’s the joint, it’s the patella, it’s the kneecap. The patella does everything in your leg. It’s the reason you can raise your leg, bend it. So you’ve got to take its time, let the tendon heal.”

Curry underwent surgery, forcing the 51-year-old to miss telecasts. He didn’t attend Tuesday’s Warriors playoff game to watch his son after the Hornets’ season had ended. Curry said he has a long way to go in his slow recovery process.

“I’ve got to keep my leg up,” Curry said. “I’m still unable to bend it at all. Big ol’ huge, heavy construction brace, so I’m kind of immobile. I’ve got to have my wife drive me to rehab and back, and it’s about all I can do. It’s a serious injury.”

Curry was feeling well enough to at least laugh about the injury.

“So I think the Cleveland Ritz, they got the wrong Curry,” Dell joked. “I think they thought my son was staying in (Room) 904 instead of me.”

“Not so much (a funny story) for me, but for my friends, my sons, my buddies, they’re going to have a lot of fun with this,” Curry added.
