Curry was trying to shake a double team and made a step-back move with his left leg and appeared to roll his left ankle. He immediately went to the sideline to receive treatment while repeatedly trying to walk off the injury and test it by jumping and putting pressure on it.

It was a scary development for Warriors fans, especially considering his troubled history and multiple surgeries on his ankle in the past. Before leaving, he was on his way to a strong performance and had 27 points on 12-of-20 shooting from the field, including 3-of-7 from beyond the arc.Stephe
