So, it’s a sprain.

Stephen Curry has rolled his ankle three times this young season and is out a while to rest it. But since he had surgery on this same ankle, he decided to go back and have the surgeon — Dr. Bob Anderson — take a look at it.

Basically he saw what the team doctors saw, according to a team statement, via

“Following the examinations and consultations with both doctors, the diagnosis of Stephen’s injury remains a sprained right ankle with no structural damage. Stephen will continue to receive treatment and undergo rehabilitation therapy. He will be cleared to play whenever he is able to pass a functionality test on his right ankle.”

There you have it, an update that really isn’t an update.

Curry will sit and Nate Robinson will get more minutes. Which worked out pretty well for the Warriors Tuesday.

    Last week Nate Robinson was sitting at home. Last night he scores 22 to beat the Heat. Funny what can happen in a week…

    At least it wasn’t the dreaded “Dr. James Andrews”
