Warriors Injury Update: Stephen Curry not worried about tweaked ankle

By on 12/02/2014 11:09:00 AM

Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry sustained a minor injury against the Detroit Pistons on Sunday. Curry was attempting a steal in the third quarter and tweaked his left ankle, according to the Contra Costa Times.

The All-Star sharp shooter then left the game to undergo examination in the locker room, missing the final eight minutes of the game after a failed attempt to continue to play through the pain.
The X-ray examination was negative—great news for any Warriors fan and for all of us who love watching the young guard perform.

Curry still totaled 16 points and 10 assists in the game and briefly spoke of the injury:
Just as long as I take care of it the next couple of days, I should be fine.
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr also touched on the matter:
He didn't look like he was moving well. He wanted to stay out on the floor, and I told him he was done for the night. We'll keep our fingers crossed. We don't think it's too serious. 
It's well known that Curry has had injury problems with his ankles in the past, and it would be a shame to see his MVP-like start to the season end so abruptly.

He missed two games with a sprained left ankle his rookie season and played in only 26 games in the 2011-2012 season after receiving surgery to repair ligaments in his right ankle. Additionally, he sat out a game due to a bruised bone on his left ankle last season.

Curry is averaging 23.8 points, 7.8 assists and 5.3 rebounds per game in 32.5 minutes of action, while also leading the Warriors to a 14-2 record so far this season—good enough for second in the extraordinarily tough Western Conference.
