Stephen Curry sprains ankle and it looks nasty, he limps straight to locker room

The final couple minutes of the Warriors win over the Pelicans had some drama. First, both DeMarcus Cousins and Kevin Durant got ejected and had to be separated.

Then Stephen Curry rolled his ankle.

And it looked bad. He stepped on the foot of E'Twaun Moore while going for a steal and it was ugly.

After the game, Curry was on crutches and headed to get X-rays taken.

The good news is the X-rays were negative, but looking at all the reports he’s going to miss some time. How much we will find out in the coming days (the Warriors are in the midst of a six-game road trip where they have won the first three).

This is what Curry said after the game, via NBC Sports Bay Area.

“That it was a dumb play because I tried to go for a steal. And it was bang-bang. Got caught on E’Twaun’s shoe as I went by him and couldn’t catch myself. Obviously, it hurt. Just wanted to get back here and get ice on it and get the rehab process start as soon as possible.”

Curry has a long history of ankle issues dating back to his early playing days in the league, although he has largely shaken it in recent years. Still, it is a concern, and the Warriors will be cautious, especially considering how easy to re-injured (and make worse) a sprained ankle is if not fully healed.
