|Warriors Steph Curry Sidelined Indefinitely|
Andrew Bogut is not the only injury concern for the Golden State Warriors at the moment with news that point guard Stephen Curry is to be sidelined indefinitely with a sprained right ankle suffered on Wednesday in shootaround. Curry has battled ankle problems throughout last season, and will be judged on a game-to-game basis for this latest occurance.
Golden State loses a pretty significant piece of the team every day point guard Stephen Curry is on the shelf. And after he sprained his right ankle Wednesday, no one knows how long that will be.
So the Warriors head into Friday's game at San Antonio, where they've lost 27 straight, in full-on survival mode, hoping not to squander their early-season bounty.
"I told the guys we built a cushion," Jackson said. "Not so we can lose it. We built a cushion to build another one."
Keeping that cushion will be a tall order if Curry is out any length of time. He made the trip to San Antonio, but Curry, who sprained his right ankle in a shootaround before missing Wednesday's blowout home loss to Miami, said his status will be determined on a game-by-game basis. Having dealt with multiple sprains and two surgeries on the same ankle over the previous two seasons, he is on familiar ground.
He will receive constant treatment, and two standards have to be met before he returns.
One, he'll have to pass the strength tests administered by the athletic training staff. Two, he'll have to be void of all soreness in that ankle.
