Curry leaves game after rolling surgically repaired ankle

Oh, please don’t let this be serious.

Golden State guard Stephen Curry left during the second quarter of Friday night’s preseason game against Portland when he rolled and sprained his surgically repaired right ankle. The ankle he has had multiple surgeries on, the one that limited him to 26 games last season.

We don’t have a lot of details but the early signs are positive. The Warriors did say he could have returned but is being kept out of the game for precautionary reasons. They said no MRI is scheduled. All good news.

But this still is a little unsettling. Curry has looked fantastic in the preseason for Golden State and if they are going to make a run to the playoffs they are going to need him and Andrew Bogut (who may not be ready to go opening night) for 70 games each.

    This kid just can’t seem to stay healthy. It’s sad because he can definitely hoop. And he’s got one of the sweetest jumpers in the game!

    Poor guy, he certainly has the talents, just sucks to have glass ankles

    Jeez, how flimsy is this poor kid? Sucks his careers gonna be cut short in just a few years. Hey GSW, DON’T extend that contract. Buyer beware, he’s a lemon!

    I’m still so incredibly angry that the Wolves took Johnny Flynn over this kid…..Johnny Flynn for crying out loud!!

    Feel bad for him. So much talent with the ball in his hands. Stay healthy and he is a 18 and 10 type of guys every year. That much ability.

    Extend him, wait the appropriate period and then trade this guy already. Making the playoffs would only slow down their rebuilding. Curry & Bogut isn’t a championship nucleus, anyways.

    This is frustrating to no fault of curry, cause I really want to see this kid play but his surgically repaired ankle won’t allow him to be the player he is! I hope that it doesn’t come down to this but I think he might have to really consider sitting out at least this season and get that ankle healed and strong! Because the same thing happened the first return and now this! ( frustrated NBA fan )
