Warriors Should Consider Sitting Curry Until The Playoffs

Warriors Should Consider Sitting Curry Until The Playoffs

After Steph Curry tweaked his right ankle early in the first quarter of the Warriors game against San Antonio on Thursday, Draymond Green knew he needed to do something.

Updating a previous item, Stephen Curry (ankle) will not play Friday against the Blazers and Sunday against the Wolves. Aldridge was able to return after missing just one game, but he didn't look like himself on a night that he scored just seven points.

Durant finished with a game-high 37 points for the Warriors, who beat the Spurs for the third straight time this season and fourth straight time overall.

Dwyane Wade had 16 points and Josh Richardson had 13 for the Heat, who moved a half-game in front of Milwaukee and into seventh in the Eastern Conference's playoff race.

Curry rolled his ankle two minutes and 22 seconds into the Warriors' 110-107 win over the San Antonio Spurs in the aftermath of a driving layup. Now, Curry will miss at least Golden State's next two games and stay in Oakland while the Warriors travel to Portland and Minnesota. Stephen Curry was the top scorer from either team with 34 points on 12-for-20 shooting.

Haynes added in the report that the Warriors medical staff was not anxious about the extent of Curry's injury after evaluating the two-time MVP in the locker room. Golden State covered as a 10-point favorite and the game finished with a total of 227 points, which was 8.5 points above the projected point total of 218.5 points. Expect it to be a team effort to step up with Quinn Cook possibly starting. Can San Antonio defeat this team for the first time this season?

That was why the Warriors went after Kevin Durant that summer, to ensure they would have another all-time great player to lean on if Curry went down again. He could miss more games, which would be a massive blow to fantasy owners when it counts the most. While Kerr listed Iguodala as questionable for Friday's game in Portland, Kerr said West will see multiple doctors for further evaluation. "He's one of the most competitive people I've ever been around and when he gets going like that defensively and he's all over the floor blocking shots, getting steals, yelling - That's when we're at our best".
