NEW ORLEANS — Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry suffered a mild right foot sprain early at Tuesday night’s 112-103 triumph contrary to the New Orleans Pelicans and didn’t return as a result of the team identified as precautionary reasons.
Golden State coach Steve Kerr said the team is convinced Curry is going to be ready to choose Game 1 of the playoffs this weekend.
The noncontact accident left in the quarter since Curry lost control; it looked his foot and ankle turned underneath him. He stayed for a little while in the competition, but he asked the seat to take him out and then proceeded to have examined with Warriors personnel after hitting a jumper with 2:43 left in the quarter.
The foot accident came in Smoothie King Centerthe same construction where Curry turned his right ankle on Dec. 4, 2017, and had to miss almost monthly.
Kerr said after Sunday’s home win over the LA Clippers that his rotational players would not play both ends of Tuesday and Wednesday’s back-to-back, therefore Curry would probably have already been slated to sit outside the latter.
The Warriors finish the regular season on Wednesday in Memphis.
