Stephen Curry injury update: Warriors, Mark Jackson ‘not concerned’ about ankle
- Updated: January 17, 2013
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry sprained his troubled right ankle and is out indefinitely after missing Wednesday night’s game vs. the Miami Heat at home.
Curry injured the ankle, which has had a long history of injury dating back to at least his junior season at Davidson and required two surgeries, when he landed on the foot of rookie Festus Ezeli. X-rays came back negative and no MRI is scheduled at this time, but there is certainly cause for concern given the problems Curry has had with the ankle throughout his career.
He and Warriors’ head coach Mark Jackson, however, are not worried.
“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. “
As usual with injuries of this nature, there is no timetable for his return, and one Warriors official said his return is based on how the ankle progresses.
“”I’m not a doctor,” Jackson said, “but I can’t imagine it turning into something more. I’m not going to get into timetables and all of that. We’re not concerned.”
Though no one in the Warriors’ camp is letting on, there is likely some worry that the third-year guard will miss some time. Without him in the lineup vs. the Heat, they took a 92-75 home loss and struggled mightily from the field, shooting just 36.2 percent and a paltry 25 percent from the 3-point line.
He’s having an All-Star caliber season in 2012-13, averaging 20.5 points, 6.6 assists and 4.2 rebounds through 36 games — all career-highs. He’s being mentioned in many circles as being a candidate to make the first All-Star Game appearance of his career.
