Stephen Curry will not play in the Golden State Warriors' final two preseason games, but it looks like he will be available and ready to go for the team's opener in Phoenix. Golden State will play the Suns on October 31st, giving Curry another week and a half to rest his ankle. He rolled the ankle last Friday and hasn't played since.
Curry may have been able to play in the Warriors' last two preseason games, and even in their game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday, but they are holding him out for precautionary reasons. Golden State wants him ready and healthy for the regular season. According to Matt Steinmetz of CSN Bay Area, Curry visited the same doctor that Andrew Bogut saw in Los Angeles; Dr. Richard Ferkel. Dr. Ferkel examined Curry and reported back to the team. After the visit, the team's GM, Bob Myers is confident that Curry will play in Phoenix.
There was no structural damage in Curry's right ankle when he was examined, and Dr. Ferkel did not seem overly concerned says Steinmetz. This is good news for a team that will need all it big guns if they are going to turn things around and start competing.
Last season, the Warriors finished 23-43. In 2010, they finished 36-46. So in short, they have not been very good. Curry has had some success, and Golden State hopes that can translate to team success. Curry has averaged 17.5 points per game in his career.
