There were bound to be a few injuries out at the “lockout league” in Vegas that runs this week and next. (Officially, it’s the Impact Competitive Training Series.). The hope was just nothing major.

So far, so good.

Stephen Curry rolled his ankle in one of the games Thursday, which is a concern because Curry battled ankle issues at the end of last season. So much so that he has surgery on it in May to tighten everything back up. But he tells Matt Steinmetz of CSNBayArea.com he’s “perfectly fine.”

“I’ve had a schedule for my recovery of coming back and I’ve been doing some high-impact workouts and I just wanted to run up and down the court a little bit,” Curry said. “I have no limitations right now and am just pacing myself to get back to 100 percent.”

In my best Chief Wiggum voice: Nothing to see here, show’s over.

Actually, maybe there would be some concern if camps were going to open in a few weeks, but as it is he should have plenty of time to heal.
