Video: Klay Thompson almost hurt his ankle at Stephen Curry’s party
Stephen Curry doesn’t turn 30 until March 14th, but the Golden State Warriors decided to have a party in his honor.
Curry is dealing with an ankle injury, but it didn’t stop him from having a good time. Why not? It’s his birthday celebration. Klay Thompson also decided to show off some of his questionable dance moves, and it almost put him as questionable for the Warriors next game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night.

Thompson went to the back of the stage and it appeared that he slipped on something and forced him to go down on one knee. Good thing for him and the Warriors, though, was that he still got back up, avoiding any injury and the dance party was able to continue well into the night.
For the Warriors, the one thing they can’t afford right now is another injury. Curry is dealing with a hurt ankle, and although the Warriors expect him back soon, there really hasn’t been a timetable for his return. It could be an injury that bothers him for a while too. He has already reinjured it once and the Warriors’ best option might be to shut him down and let it completely heal and get him ready for playoffs time.
With Curry out, Thompson is an even bigger key to the defending champions’ success. He has played in 66 games this year putting up 19.7 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 2.7 assists per game. He is shooting 49 percent from the field.
For Thompson and the Warriors, hopefully, his play is better than his dance skills down the stretch or they could be in some trouble.
