Stephen Curry Injury: How Many Games Will Warriors Star Miss After Twisting Ankle Against Pelicans?




 

Stephen Curry suffered a right ankle injury in the closing stages of Golden State's win over New Orleans on Monday and left the arena on crutches, but later X-rays cleared him of any damage. Curry hurt the ankle when he lunged for a steal and turned the ankle awkwardly with just over a minute remaining in the game.

Curry finished with 31 points and 11 assists as the Warriors rallied to a 125-115 victory.

"I hadn't done that one in a while," Curry told ESPN postgame. "Sprained my ankle. See how it feels tomorrow and kind of go from there. Obviously a sucky situation, but I'll be back."

Curry, a native of Akron, Ohio, fought through repeated ankle injuries and surgery on a torn ligament early in his career to emerge as the NBA's best and perhaps most revolutionary point guard in a generation. He was named league M.V.P. in 2015 and 2016 and has won two NBA Championships with the Warriors in 2015 and 2017.

The Warriors had already wrapped up a comeback win-their fourth in a row of a six-game road trip-when Curry landed awkwardly after missing a steal. "I won't bounce back tomorrow morning and wake up and go, 'All right, I should be whatever,' just because of the swelling," Curry continued after the game in quotes reported by SFGate.com. "But all things considered, knowing I've been through this before on this ankle, knowing the surgical repairs from five, six years ago are fine, I should be able to bounce back."

The Warriors, second in the Western Conference behind the Rockets at 19-6, travel to Charlotte on Thursday to play the Hornets.
