Injuries are the last thing you want to see in the penultimate regular season game, let alone one which has no postseason implications. Beyond that, the last person you want to see injured is Stephen Curry.
Towards the end of the first quarter, Curry came off a screen from Kevon Looney at the top of the 3-point arc and made a move to his right before going down with no contact made. Curry then headed to the locker room and did not return to the game.
According to the Warriors, Curry sustained what has been termed a mild right foot sprain.
Stephen Curry (mild right foot sprain) will not return to tonight's game for precautionary reasons.

Obviously, any injury to Curry is concerning, but his struggles with near career-derailing ankle injuries earlier in his career give a heightened sense of worry whenever Curry aggravates anything related to his ankle. The foot sprain is obviously not a positive, but the fact that it is apparently not related to Curry’s ankle is less concerning than the foot.
