Stephen Curry has not had much luck this season with his right ankle. He suffered a sprain to the ankle earlier in the year that kept him sideline for some time. Now, he will be out indefinitely after spraining the ankle again.
According to Marcus Thompson II of the San Jose Mercury News, Curry suffered the injury while chasing after the ball during practice. His coach, Mark Jackson, said it was really just a freak injury. Fortunately for Curry, he has had a good amount of time to heal from the original sprain, so this injury is not likely to be a re-aggravation, but simply another fresh injury.
"I haven't had a sprain in two-and-a-half months, so my ligaments are as probably the healthiest they've been," Curry said. "Just have to wait and see how they recover. "With Curry and others healthy, the Golden State Warriors have been a legitimate contender this season. They are currently 23-14 and in fifth place in the Western Conference standings. In order to maintain their success, they need Curry to stop spraining his ankle.
Curry has averaged 20.5 points and 6.6 assists per game this season. He is having an impressive season, but he's always shown an ability to score and dish the ball. In his career, Curry has averaged 18.0 points and 5.9 assists per game.
