War­riors guard Curry side­lined with an­kle sprain

Manila Times - - SPORTS -

GOLDEN State War­riors guard Stephen Curry, a twotime NBA Most Valu­able Player, will miss his sec­ond con­sec­u­tive game with a sprained right an­kle, the de­fend­ing NBA cham­pi­ons said Satur­day.

The news came hours be­fore the War­riors were set to take the court at Milwaukee. The move is seen as a pre­cau­tion­ary one as Golden State has back- to­back games con­clud­ing Satur­day at Toronto.

Curry, who missed 11 games last month with the an­kle sprain, ag­gra­vated the in­jury on Wed­nes­day in shoot­ing prac­tice be­fore miss­ing the War­riors’ 125- 106 loss to the Los An­ge­les Clippers.

War­riors coach Steve Kerr said Curry looked good in a full prac­tice ses­sion Thurs­day.

Curry is av­er­ag­ing 27.9 points a game, the sec­ondbest rank in his nine NBA cam­paigns.

At 33- 9, the War­riors own the best record in the NBA by per­cent­age points over the Bos­ton Celtics ( 34- 10) and lead the Western Con­fer­ence over sec­ond- best Hous­ton ( 29- 11) by three games.
