Stephen Curry injury update: A timeline of the Warriors guard's right ankle

The latest injury to the third-year guard's right ankle isn't serious, but Warriors fans have every right to be griping at this point in time given recent history.

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry injured his troubled right ankle in Wednesday's shootaround prior to the game vs. the Miami Heat and sent fans in the Bay Area into a panic.

Though the latest ailment isn't thought to be a major concern, the third-year guard out of Davidson has had plenty of issues dating back to his collegiate days that give all Warriors' stakeholders fair reason to be worried.

  • Curry's only missed game in his NCAA career was against The Citadel and was due to a rolled ankle he suffered on Feb. 14, 2009 vs. Furman.
  • On Dec. 8, 2010, Curry sprained his right ankle in the second quarter of a 111-94 loss to the San Antonio Spurs. He was untouched while dribbling around the three-point line when the injury occurred.
  • He sprained the same ankle multiple times in the 2010-11 season, prompting a surgery to repair torn ligaments in May 2011.
  • On Jan. 4, 2012, he sprained the same ankle yet again.
  • Curry, making his first return from a mild foot sprain, was forced to leave a March 10, 2012 game after another sprain, one of many in the lockout-shortened season.
  • Following months of rehab and a clean bill of health, he returned to training camp for the 2012-13 season and inked a four-year, $44 million contract extension.
  • On Wednesday, he injured the same troubled ankle during the team's shootaround prior to facing the Miami Heat.

Again, the injury is not serious, and no MRI is scheduled. That wind-like sound you're hearing coming from Northern California is the Bay Area exhaling in unison.
