The Golden State Warriors will be without star Stephen Curry for at least 2 weeks with the former MVP dealing with a right ankle sprain according to the team. An MRI found no structural damage and his status will be reassessed in two weeks the team stated on Tuesday. Curry injured the ankle on Monday after getting tangled with Pelicans guard E’Twaun Moore with around a minute to go in regulation of the Warriors’ 125-115 victory against New Orleans.
“It was a dumb play because I tried to go for a steal… and then obviously it was just a bang-bang [play]. I got caught on E’Twaun’s shoe as I went by him and couldn’t catch myself. So obviously it hurt, but wanted to kind of get back here, get ice on it and get the rehab process started as soon as possible” Curry said after the Warriors win on Monday.
This shouldn’t be too big of a deal for the Warriors, but it is important to note that Curry doesn’t have the best history with ankle injuries, so it definitely is something Golden State should carefully monitor moving forward.
Another big takeaway from last night’s game was the ejection and aftermath of both Kevin Durant and Demarcus Cousins:

I’m sure Durant has already gone IN on Boogie on one of his burner accounts, which is not something I would recommend.
