An MRI on Stephen Curry’s right ankle was negative, showing that it’s stable and structurally intact, and he’ll be re-evaluated in two weeks, the team announced on Tuesday evening.
Curry rolled his ankle hard late in Monday night’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans, and left the team locker room on crutches.
“Yeah, I haven’t done that one in a long time,” Curry told reporters after the game. “Sprained my ankle, see how it feels tomorrow and kind of go from there. Obviously a sucky situation, but I’ll be back … All things considered, I should, knowing I’ve been through this before on this ankle, knowing the surgical repairs from like five, six years ago are fine, I should be able to bounce back.”
“It was a dumb play because I tried to go for a steal, obviously just a bang-bang play,” he said. “Obviously it hurt.”
Curry, who’s from North Carolina, said he’s disappointed he won’t play against his hometown Charlotte Hornets when the Warriors travel there for Wednesday’s game. The Warriors have won 8 of 10 overall and are second in the conference behind the Houston Rockets.
