Stephen Curry injured his ankle for about the 152nd time on Friday night against the Spurs when he tried to make a move with the ball in the fourth quarter and rolled his ankle in the process.
He did stay in the game — which the Warriors lost by 10 — but was in obvious pain and discomfort.
The question now becomes whether or not the young guard will suit up for Game 4 on Sunday.
“If I can give the team anything, I will play,” Curry told CSN Bay Area. “I feel like if I can get to a point where I’m not hobbling and I can cut how I want to. It doesn’t have to be 100 percent, as long as I can be confident that it won’t do any further damage.”
X-rays on his sprained left ankle were negative and there is no MRI scheduled, per the report.
How did the injury occur?
“Tried to stop short and change directions, overcooked it just a little bit,” he said, via Marcus Thompson of the Bay Area News Group. “It wasn’t as bad as the one I did in Denver, it just happened to be the same foot. Compounding the fact that it wasn’t all the way healed from last time and just a repeat turn. I’m pretty optimistic I’ll be able to play in whatever the capacity, I’ll be on the floor.
Down 2-1 in the best-of-seven second round series, the Warriors will need Curry on the court if they want to even things up.
