Warriors prevail over Spurs despite Steph Curry injury

Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry left Thursday's game against the San Antonio Spurs with a sprained right ankle.

According to ESPN's Chris Haynes, Curry is "day-to-day" and will travel with the team during the two-game road trip to the Portland Trail Blazers (Friday) and Minnesota Timberwolves (Sunday). Golden State played pretty sloppily for the most part, and Steph Curry's injury didn't help. He missed 11 games after badly spraining it December. He had recently tweaked his ankle in the game against the Hawks. Thursday, he came down awkwardly after being fouled on a fast-break layup attempt.

Curry returned to the game to shoot his two free throws, making his way to the locker room to get his ankle checked out.

The Warriors wound up winning thanks to a 37-point performance from Kevin Durant and a triple-double from Draymond Green. While Kerr listed Iguodala as questionable for Friday's game in Portland, Kerr said West will see multiple doctors for further evaluation. The team told reporters that Curry would stay in the Bay Area for the time being. "Not good enough. I think we just have to learn from our mistakes at some point".

The team is likely going to handle Curry with extreme caution with 17 games left before the playoffs.

"There's a lot of comparison, really, around the creativity and the innovation that we bring to our respective sports and trying to, I guess, impact - I would say influence the next generation to try to push themselves as well".

Curry will be trying to continue to inspire the next generation when the defending National Basketball Association champions take on Western Conference rivals San Antonio Spurs on Thursday night.
