Sources: Curry (ankle) ruled out vs. Hornets
X-rays taken after the game were negative. But Curry left Smoothie King Center in a walking boot and on crutches, and the angle to which his ankle was bent looked severe.
The injury occurred with just about a minute left in regulation as Curry and Pelicans guard E’Twaun Moore got tangled up.
“It was a dumb play because I tried to go for a steal,” Curry said Monday after the Warriors’ 125-115 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans. “And then obviously it was just a bang-bang [play]. I got caught on E’Twaun’s shoe as I went by him and couldn’t catch myself. So obviously it hurt, but wanted to kind of get back here, get ice on it and get the rehab process started as soon as possible.”
Curry’s injury dampened the fact that with five 3-pointers on Monday night, he became just the eighth player in NBA history to make 2,000 3-pointers or more.
