Curry rolled his right ankle while going for a steal in the fourth quarter of Golden State's game against the New Orleans Pelicans.
"I hadn't done that one in a while", Curry said after the game, via ESPN.com. Curry was competing until the final buzzer, though, and it led to him suffering a bum wheel.
Golden State Warriors star point guard Stephen Curry has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Charlotte Hornets due to the ankle injury he suffered on Monday. Curry's right ankle has been problematic during his professional career.
Curry has been averaging a team-high 26.3 points per game for the Warriors (19-6) this season.
The two-time NBA MVP left Smoothie King Center on a walking boot and crutches, though, which can't make Warriors fans feel good.
Curry injured the right ankle late in the 125-115 win over the New Orleans Pelicans. Curry is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Tuesday, and the results should give some clarity on his recovery timetable. "I shouldn't say that". "But all things considered, knowing I've been through this before on this ankle, knowing the surgical repairs from five, six years ago are fine, I should be able to bounce back". Got caught on E'Twaun's shoe as I went by him and couldn't catch myself.
"So obviously it hurt, but wanted to kind of get back here, get ice on it and get the rehab process started as soon as possible".
"Yeah, I always look forward to that trip, playing in that arena and playing in front of people that seen me grow up".
