The Golden State Warriors have been without Steph Curry for a total of 11 games this year, thanks to a nagging ankle injury and that number is about to get higher.
Although he didn’t fracture anything, he did tweak that right ankle in last night’s game against the San Antonio Spurs. The injury happened in the first quarter during a drive to the basket against two defenders, as he landed awkward on that ankle. He stayed in the game for some free throws, but went to the locker room soon after.
Kevin Durant and company managed to make a comeback against the Spurs late in the fourth quarter and managed to win the game, but the question still remains: How effective will Curry be during the last stretch of the season and how will this effect his play and/or minutes in the postseason?
As of now, he will not travel to Portland to play against the Trail Blazers and will most likely miss the Warriors games against the Minnesota Timberwolves to stay at home and rest the ankle. How much longer he’ll be missing will be interesting to keep an eye on. Dub Nation should not be panicking just yet.
We can bet Golden State will be siding will caution for their MVP.
Warriors postgame plans for Steph Curry have shifted from traveling to Portland, may play vs Minnesota, to skipping Portland trip, still may fly/play in Minnesota, to, now, sitting out entire 2-game road trip to rest/recover in Bay Area, which always made the most sense.
