Warriors coach Steve Kerr provides injury update on Stephen Curry after hurting ankle
The Golden State Warriors actually started strong against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday up until Stephen Curry injured his ankle and left the ball game. The two-time MVP, who already had his share of ankle issues in the past, tweaked it once more after stepping on Patrick Beverley’s foot.
The Dubs eventually succumbed to the Clippers, 101-108, but head coach Steve Kerr still had some positive news after the match. Per Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle, Kerr revealed that Curry’s injury seems minor, although they are still awaiting test results if it will cause him to miss some games.
Kerr said Steph Curry tweaked his ankle, but no one believe it's serious. Team will know more tomorrow.

Stephen Curry was actually struggling against the pesky Clippers defense before exiting the game. The Warriors sharpshooter put up 13 points on just 5-of-17 shooting from the field and 1-of-6 from past the arc, along with four boards, five assists and one steal in 35 minutes. The three-time NBA champion was on a scoring rampage entering Wednesday’s match-up against LA, having torched the Portland Trail Blazers for a career-high 62 points followed by 30-point output against the Sacramento Kings.
While Curry’s injury does not appear severe, the Dubs would be wise to still proceed with caution with their superstar point guard. To recall, Curry suited up in just five games last season after breaking his hand.
Curry is averaging 29.6 points on 44.6 percent shooting from the field and 35.6 from deep in eight games.
The Warriors, meanwhile, are currently 4-4 but are playing much better basketball over the last few days.
