After Stephen Curry had gone flying into the second row chasing a loose ball, he came out with a little bump on his elbow.

As the game wore on, there was nothing little about it.

That swelling — the Warriors said it got to the size of a tennis ball — didn’t impact his shots in Game 2 and it’s not going to keep him out of Game 3, as Ethan Sherwood Straus of ESPN reports.

Monte Poole of CSNBayArea.com has more details.

The Warriors on Thursday described the swelling as a “contusion” but did not place Curry on the preliminary injury report for Game 3 on Sunday in Oklahoma City.

Though Curry underwent treatment Thursday morning and “showed improvement,” according to the team, there are no plans to drain the elbow, general manager Bob Myers told 95.7 The Game.

“It looks like a tennis ball on top of it, but it doesn’t affect range of motion or anything,” Curry said Wednesday night after scoring a team-high 28 points. “It’s just some pain, so I’ll be all right.”

Curry was back to consistently hitting his shots and looking like the two-time MVP version of himself in Game 2. Which presents a host of challenges for the Thunder in Game 3.
