Golden State rallied from a double-digit deficit in the fourth quarter Thursday night to beat the San Antonio Spurs, but everyone inside the organization and out was focused on Curry's right ankle, which acted up for the fourth time this season - and second time within a week.
Updating a previous item, Stephen Curry (ankle) will not play Friday against the Blazers and Sunday against the Wolves.
The Warriors are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall.
But for everything that has changed, one thing hasn't: Golden State - and, by extension, this entire league - hinges on the health of Stephen Curry's ankles.
The severity of his latest ankle injury is not yet known, but this much is certain: The Warriors will be cautious with him.More news: Bomb explodes under police officer's vehicle in Northern Ireland
Golden State captured its seventh consecutive victory, and moved within a half game of the Houston Rockets for the top spot in the Western Conference standings. San Antonio's offense disappeared when they needed it most while Durant led the Warriors on a 17-6 in the final minutes of the game to secure Golden State's 51st win of the season.
Steph Curry's history of ankle injuries are well-documented, and on Thursday night, the Golden State Warriors' star found himself with a bum wheel once more. Kyle Anderson stepped up with 12 points, 11 rebounds, four assists and five steals. Now, Curry will miss at least Golden State's next two games and stay in Oakland while the Warriors travel to Portland and Minnesota.
Haynes added in the report that the Warriors medical staff was not anxious about the extent of Curry's injury after evaluating the two-time MVP in the locker room.
Injuries remain a consistent presence for the Silver and Black, even as some players start to get healthy. "After a thorough evaluation in the locker room, the Warriors decided not to let Curry return to action". He missed 11 games after badly spraining it December. "I haven't heard of anything like this before but I don't think it will keep him out too long and hopefully it gets resolved".
