Stephen Curry sparked a second-half comeback to inspire the Golden State Warriors to victory over the New Orleans Pelicans yesterday morning (Singapore time), but suffered a late ankle injury to take the shine off a dramatic win.
Second-year forward Patrick McCaw (nose contusion) and center Zaza Pachulia (left shoulder soreness) are listed as questionable for tomorrow's tilt, the fifth of a six-game road trip for the defending champs.
Curry has been diagnosed with a sprained right ankle. He landed awkwardly on his right ankle and twisted his foot awkwardly. X-rays were negative and he will undergo an MRI on Tuesday, the Warriors confirmed. Stephen Curry falls into that category.
Curry spoke the assembled media in New Orleans and addressed his injury. The Hornets aren't yet the elite defensive team coach Steve Clifford says they can be.
The timing of the injury means Curry won't play in the club's lone visit to Charlotte - the city Curry grew up in and located not far from where he was a college star at Davidson. "Obviously, it hurt. Just wanted to get back here and get ice on it and get the rehab process start as soon as possible".
Steph Curry will miss the Warriors' game Wednesday in Charlotte with an injured right ankle, Chris Haynes of ESPN.com reports.
