Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry is a game-time decision against the Miami Heat after re-injuring his right ankle on Wednesday.
Stephen Curry sprained his right ankle during Wednesday's shootaround and will be a game-time decision for the Golden State Warriors' game against the Miami Heat, according to Contra Costa Times' Marcus Thompson. Thompson said that Curry is in a "wait and see mode" leading into the game.
The injury that ESPN's Brian Windhorst described only as an aggravation was to the same ankle that required extensive rehab after offseason surgery. That was his second ankle surgery in two years.
Thompson reports that Curry injured the ankle when landing on center Festus Ezeli's foot.
Already considered a game-time decision after hyperextending his right knee during Sunday's 116-105 loss to the Denver Nuggets, the point guard sat out of Tuesday's practice because of that injury.
Averaging 20.5 points, 6.6 assists and 4.2 rebounds per game, the fourth-year point guard appeared to be out of the woods as far as his ankle troubles were concerned. He's played in all 36 games for the Warriors this year and until this point held up well in 38 minutes per outing.
UPDATE: Curry will not play in Wednesday night's game vs. the Heat. X-rays on the injured ankle were negative.
