Curry to be re-evaluated in two weeks after spraining right ankle in New Orleans


The Golden State Warriors released their latest injury report Tuesday, and it contains bad news about one of their biggest stars.

Stephen Curry underwent an MRI on Tuesday morning and while it did not indicate any structural damage to his sprained right ankle, the team will re-evaluate him in two weeks. Curry sprained his ankle in the final 90 seconds of the Warriors’ 125-115 win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday evening, as he turned the ankle while attempting to close out on a three-point attempt by E’Twaun Moore.

Reports indicate that two-way player Quinn Cook will be recalled from the Santa Cruz Warriors to help fill in during Curry’s absence.

The Warriors’ injury report also noted that guard Patrick McCaw and center Zaza Pachulia are questionable for Wednesday’s road game against the Charlotte Hornets.

McCaw left the Warriors’ Monday night game in New Orleans against the Pelicans after DeMarcus Cousins elbowed him in the nose, causing the contusion. He went to the locker room after the contusion occurred, but later returned to the bench, though he did not return to game action for the remainder of the game.

Pachulia missed the Warriors’ contest against the Pelicans with the same left shoulder soreness that will cause him to be questionable for Wednesday’s game.
