We thought the ankle problems were behind him. After suffering an ankle/foot injury in game one of the Western Conference playoffs, Stephen Curry sat out game two and is questionable for game three.
This isn’t the first time in Steph’s career that he’s had ankle issues. It’s well-documented that he missed all but 26 games in 2011-12.
Golden State didn’t miss Curry too much as they extended their series lead over the Rockets, and it would be foolish to rush him back when the Warriors have a very slight chance of being upset. Even without their revolutionary superstar, Golden State has enough depth and talent to escape the first round — evidenced by Klay Thompson’s 34-point outburst.
After undergoing an MRI on Tuesday, the results showed no cause for concern. After the injury had happened, Steph exited the floor under his own power and without much of a limp. “It’s the back of the foot,” said coach Steve Kerr. “It’s underneath the ankle. It’s something down there.”
