Stephen Curry day-to-day with injured ankle

Nov 6, 2013, 11:34 PM EST

This appears to be pretty minor, he may not miss any games, but with Stephen Curry’s history of ankle injuries, you have to do a double take.

Curry left the game in the third quarter with what was first described as a left foot bone bruise, but after the game the team announced he is day-to-day with an ankle injury, reports Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Curry sounds optimistic he can go Friday night against the Spurs

Let’s hope this is the case. It sounds minor, but don’t be shocked if the Warriors are cautious and have him sit a game.

Andre Iguodala stepped into the role as point guard and helped lead the Warriors to a 106-93 win over a quality Minnesota team. That’s the kind of versatility that makes Iguodala so invaluable to this team. Klay Thompson had 19 points in the fourth quarter, which was the other key.

    I’m about as surprised about this as I am when I flip a light switch upwards and a light comes on.

    3 things in life are guaranteed; Taxes, death, and Steph Curry’s ankles holding him out of games.

    Maybe Nike should design a special shoe for him that supports his ankles better

    The issue with the play is:

    1. Rubio had ZERO chance of stealing the ball.
    2. Rubio was wreckless and out of control
    3. It was an amateurish pick-up game play by Rubio….guys get WHOOPED at the local gym for making a play like that.

    My assessment is it was a Dirty Play on an elite caliber player, by a scrub with only a few years left in the league, if he can’t learn to shoot.

    Hell be alright, yet that will cause his jumping.

    I wonder if Curry will last 5 more years on those glass ankles?? I like how he shots but how long can he last??

    I think at some point Curry has to play more and more like a spot-up-shooter. He runs the point for the Warriors quite often and the cross over dribbles are going to cause problems with his fragile ankles.

    Last year we had a heck of a backup PG in Jack. But honestly, this year, we’re even more prepared. Iggy stepped up once Curry went down and did a great job of leading GS to victory over the Timberwolves.

    Thompson is in his 3rd year and he’s showing star quality as the mental side of his game is now catching up to his athletic ability. Light switch has come on and game has slowed down for him. He’s going to be a borderline All Star player this year.

    Barnes is back and he looked pretty darn good in his 2nd year. Coaching staff did a good job of holding him out for an extended amount of time to have him back at 100%.

    GSW is much more prepared for Curry to sit for a few games if necessary. Hopefully, Curry hits the court, ease back on scoring and work on his assist these next couple of games due to all the talent around him. He doesn’t have to push it, let the stars around him elevate their game.
