The Golden State Warriors may be without star point guard Steph Curry for a while, pending more diagnosis on his sprained right ankle.
The injury happened in the closing minute of their game against the New Orleans Pelicans when Steph went for a steal against E’Twaun Moore, stepped on his foot and then twisted his ankle something nasty. He had trouble getting up and was visibly seen limping on the ensuing possession. He immediately checked himself out of the game.
Afterwards, he was seen a walking boot and crutches.
He told reporters after the game that x-rays were negative and he’s going to rely on the athletic training staff to take care of him and that he’d take it day-by-day as of now. He also explained what happened on the play and why he won’t rush to come back. His teammates don’t want him too, either.
Curry finished with a solid 31 points and 11 assists on the night.
The Warriors actually came back from a 20-point deficit on the road and defeated the Pelicans when it was all said and done.
Kevin Durant and DeMarcus Cousins were out her getting ejected too.
FINAL: GS 125 | NO 115
UPDATE: According to MRI, Steph Curry had no structural damage on his sprained right ankle, but he will miss at least the next two weeks as it heals.
