Stephen Curry‘s right ankle is getting better by the day. Whether he plays for the Warriors in Thursday’s Game 3 in Houston is another story. Curry suffered the injury in Saturday’s series-opening game and sat out Monday as the Warriors took a 2-0 series lead over the Rockets without him. And it sounds doubtful that he’ll play Thursday.
Taking the cautious approach continues to be smart for the Warriors. Curry’s ankles are the main obstacle standing between them and capping off the record-breaking 73-win season with a title. His teammates have thoroughly outplayed a listless Rockets team without him through two games, so there’s no need to force him back on the court early.
