Stephen Curry injury update: Warriors star 'good to go' for Game 5

USA TODAY Sports

After playing on a sprained ankle in Game 4, the Golden State point guard experienced no setbacks over the last two days.

Stephen Curry was clearly hobbled for most of the Warriors Game 4 victory over the Spurs, struggling on an ankle that he sprained toward the end of Game 3.

And with the series tied 2-2 and headed back to San Antonio for what could be a decisive Game 5, the health of Curry's ankles is one of the biggest story lines.

In a conversation with reporters on Tuesday, Curry said his ankle was feeling better, courtesy of the San Jose Mercury News:

-Q: So how does the ankle feel today?

-CURRY: I feel good. Ready to go tonight. It feels a whole lot better than it did before Game 4, so that's all I could ask for.

-Q: You said you just wanted it to feel like it did after Game 4. So it's better than that?

-CURRY: I woke up yesterday, it wasn't worse than it was before the game, which is a huge success. And then was able to capitalize on that with treatment the last day or so.

Curry's ankles have already been surgically repaired twice in his young career, magnifying the importance of every sprain and tweak to that part of the body.

He's struggled with his efficiency against the Spurs, shooting 42.5 percent from the floor in the series after a blistering 47 percent against the Nuggets in the first-round.

To pull off another upset in San Antonio, Golden State will need him to be as close to 100 percent as possible.
