The only concern for the Golden State Warriors coming into tonight’s game against the Washington Wizards was to win. Now it’s about the health of point guard Stephen Curry who rolled his right ankle the same one that he had surgery on and hurt back in January.
He hurt the ankle just over halfway through the fourth quarter with the Warriors up 11. Cartier Martin grabbed Curry to prevent an easy score and as a result fell awkwardly rolling his ankle. Even after attempting to walk it off there was a noticeable limp and after hitting the two free throws went to the locker room and did not return.
Curry’s night ended after 32 minutes of action in which he scored 35 points and dished out eight assists while going 13-18 from the field, 6-10 from beyond the arc and 3-from the free throw line.
Monday is the next game for the Warriors and it comes against the Los Angeles Lakers. If he can’t go it means Jarrett Jack will get the start with Kent Bazemore giving him a rest.
