Chris Paul broke his left hand Friday night against the Pistons and will require surgery, the Warriors said after the game.

Golden State defeated Detroit 113-109 to improve to 17-18, but it wasn’t all positive as Paul was injured in the second half.

The guard missed a 3-pointer from the right wing with 6:08 left in the third quarter and attempted a long rebound as he made contact with Detroit’s Jaden Ivey.

Paul took his hand before leaving for the dressing room.

The 38-year-old will undergo surgery next week but is expected to return this season.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said the team will have to ‘hold down the fort’ without the veteran

«That’s tough, I feel so bad for Chris, I know he’s had a couple of hand surgeries before I believe it, maybe the other way around,» coach Steve Kerr said.

“I saw how he was holding it and I was immediately afraid. I got the word after I left the floor. So I feel terrible for Chris and of course the guys come out and ready to play. We must hold the fort without him.’

Paul, who was traded to the Warriors from the Wizards in July after they acquired him from the Suns, averaged 9.0 points, 7.3 assists and 3.7 rebounds in Friday’s game.
