Warriors' Stephen Curry leaves Spurs game with tweaked ankle

OAKLAND CA- MARCH 6 Stephen Curry #30 of the Golden State Warriors goes to the basket against the Brooklyn Nets Steph Curry Went To The Locker Room After His Rolling His Ankle Against The Spurs (UPDATE)
| 10 March, 2018, 02:06

Kevin Durant had 37 points, 11 rebounds and four blocked shots and nearly single-handedly led the undermanned defending champions' fourth-quarter rally past the San Antonio Spurs for a 110-107 win Thursday night after Curry went down early.

The Warriors visit the Portland Trail Blazers tonight, and will take on the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday. Stephen Curry's ankles have been an issue this season - he sprained one back on December 4 and missed much of that month getting healthy. He had recently tweaked his ankle in the game against the Hawks. "The team said he was getting re-taped and going through tests, then Curry didn't return - but the Warriors are going to be cautious at this stage of the season with the playoffs beginning next month".

It keeps them within touching distance of the Houston Rockets at the top of the Western Conference where they're once again just half a game behind.

While Kevin Durant carried the scoring load, dropping 14 straight points in the fourth quarter, Green did his damage from all over the floor, stuffing the stat sheet with 11 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists, three steals, and two blocks during his 36 minutes on the floor.

The son of Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr, Nick Kerr serves as an intern in San Antonio's video department. If that wasn't enough, the Warriors will likely be without Curry, who suffered yet another ankle injury. Expect it to be a team effort to step up with Quinn Cook possibly starting.


The Warriors have emerged victorious in both contests against the Spurs this year, including a 122-105 victory the last time these teams met.

And Allen Crabbe scored 29 points as the visiting Brooklyn Nets snapped a 10-game road losing streak and beat the Charlotte Hornets 125-111.

For one night, though, the Warriors adjusted fine without Curry.

Yet, the Warriors showed mixed success on holding everything together without their star point guard against a Spurs team (37-28) still missing star forward Kawhi Leonard. While Kerr listed Iguodala as questionable for Friday's game in Portland, Kerr said West will see multiple doctors for further evaluation. "I'm thinking about our health and we'll get Steph healthy".
