Stephen Curry to Sit Out vs. Trail Blazers, Timberwolves with Ankle Injury

Adjust Comment Print

He did not travel to Portland and will miss at least the next two games.

The Warriors called a timeout after the play but Curry received little medical attention on the bench. Kevin Durant poured in 40 points on 12 of 21 shooting, Klay Thompson added 25 points while Draymond Green scored seven points with 12 rebounds and six assists.

Green's hoop happened after he appeared to attempt a lob pass that hit off the backboard and caromed right back to him.

The Warriors (51-14) might enter Friday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers (39-26) without Stephen Curry (tweaked right ankle), David West (right arm cyst), Andre Iguodala (left wrist sprain), Jordan Bell (right ankle sprain) and Patrick McCaw (fractured left wrist).

Damian Lillard led the Blazers with 28 points and Portland won their 9th straight to consolidate their 3rd place in the West ahead of New Orleans - who were beaten 116-97 by the Washington Wizards.

Golden State Warriors point guard Steph Curry is going to miss his team's upcoming two-game road trip.

Meanwhile, like Alabama , teams like Mizzou, Texas A&M and Arkansas would be wise to avoid an embarrassing early loss in St. This team is a familiar one for UNC fans: last April, the Tar Heels defeated Gonzaga to bring home the national title.

The Warriors are going to need better performances from Cook and Young if they want to pick up a win in Minnesota.

Bell, who sprained his right ankle Tuesday against Brooklyn, will be out through the weekend and re-evaluated Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the Minnesota Timberwolves have been in a bit of a slump as they've lost seven of their past 11 games and they will be hoping to avoid a fourth straight loss after Thursday's 117-109 loss to the Celtics.

The Warriors, 51-14, have won nine of their last 10 games but they're still a half game back of the Houston Rockets who are now riding a 17-game winning streak en route to an NBA-best 51-13 record.

"Without Steph, we're missing a lot on the offensive side of the ball", Durant said. Ed Davis had a season-high 15 rebounds to go with his 10 points. "I probably shouldn't have said anything (to media) in the first place".
