No structural damage to Curry’s ankle, will be re-evaluated in 2 weeks

The Warriors rallied from down 21 points thanks to Steph Curry’s 31-point performance, beating the Pelicans 125-115.

An MRI result revealed no structural damage to Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry’s right ankle, but he did sprain it. He will be re-evaluated in a couple weeks time.

Curry injured himself in Monday night’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans when trying to intercept a pass to E’Twuan Moore.

The play occurred just a few seconds after Kevin Durant and DeMarcus Cousins were ejected for getting into a heated confrontation. The Warriors overturned a 69-49 halftime deficit to come back and win 125-115, thanks in large part to Curry’s 31-point, 11-assist night.

It was a milestone night as well for the Charlotte native, as he knocked down his 2,000th three-pointer to make him the fastest — by far — to the landmark.

Despite being on crutches after the game, he seemed to be in good spirits and pointed out that the negative X-ray results also came with the news that the surgical repairs he underwent in 2012 were not impacted.

With a former MVP and two other all-star calibre players, it’s hard to view the loss as a crushing blow for the Warriors, but Curry is having a prolific season with averages of 26.3 points, 5.1 rebounds, 6.6 assists, and 1.7 steals.

The shooting numbers are what everyone looks for with the former seventh overall pick in 2009, and he is at 47.3 per cent from the field, 38.1 per cent from beyond the three-point arc, and 93.3 per cent from the free-throw line.
