Stephen Curry Out Indefinitely With Ankle Sprain

Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry’s chronically-injured right ankle has him sidelined once again — Curry is out indefinitely. Per the San Jose Mercury News: “Curry sat out the defending NBA champions’ lone trip to Oracle Arena this season, his first missed game of the season. He injured the ankle at the shootaround Wednesday morning when he landed on the foot of rookie Festus Ezeli. ‘I haven’t had a sprain in two-and-a-half months, so my ligaments are as probably the healthiest they’ve been,’ Curry said. ‘Just have to wait and see how they recover. I haven’t been in this situation for a while. I don’t know if it will be a fast or slow kind of deal just because after two surgeries and all that process, it finally had the time to cool down. So we’ll see tomorrow.’ X-rays came back negative. His return will be based on how his right ankle progresses, a Warriors official said. ‘I’m not a doctor,’ Jackson said, ‘but I can’t imagine it turning into something more. I’m not going to get into timetables and all of that. We’re not concerned.’ [...] Curry’s right ankle has been a cloud hanging over his NBA career and the Warriors’ chances. He sprained the same ankle multiple times during the 2010-11 season, prompting surgery in May 2011 to repair torn ligaments. But that didn’t prevent multiple sprains during the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season. He had another surgery in April 2012 on his right ankle. And after months of rehab, he returned to action in time for training camp. He showed enough progress for the Warriors to sign him to a four-year, $44 million contract extension. Curry’s ankle had been a nonissue the first 36 games of the season, a big reason Golden State entered Wednesday 10 games above .500. He’s one of only three players in the NBA averaging at least 20 points, six assists and four rebounds per game. The others are Miami’s LeBron James and Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook. Jackson is sure to wait until Curry’s ankle is fully healed before putting him back in the action.”


This guy was playing so well and now this..

People see "indefinite" and panic, all it means is they haven't got a confirmed time for return yet. It could be a week or two.

Only reason it's "indefinite" is because of Steph's past ankle issues and the fact that in the past him spraining his ankle led to more sprains throughout the season... They aren't going to rush him back so he just messes it up again, they're going to be very careful this time. By they I mean the Warriors medical staff.

Bad news for Warriors fans, Curry has been brilliant in the first part of this season and has them in a great playoff position. I feel extremely bad for Curry, he has proved that he is such a good player when he is healthy. Hopefully it isn't anything more serious than a sprain and he just recovers quickly without any problems.

Last night's loss showed that the Warriors need Curry back on the court. Just like Bay said, the Warriors are going to be careful, before really clearing him to play, so he won't re-injure his ankle. I hope this heals quickly, because their slump might cause them to slip out of the playoff race, for now.

Warriors are still the 5th best team in the West so they should be cool. Curry will probably be back by the end of the month

Who will replace Curry's minutes in the rotation, other than Jack?
