Steph Curry Sprains Ankle Again

Blazers Evan Turner eager to'kick it with Andre Iguodala

However, Kerr insists Curry is not going to be rushed back for the sake of chasing the No. 1 seed. Will be updated with Spurs quotes.

Curry left Thursday night's win over the San Antonio Spurs early in the first quarter with what the Warriors described as a "tweak" to his troublesome ankle.

A recent rash of injuries left the Warriors thin coming into Thursday - but then it turned into a full-blown epidemic.

"We've still got three All-Stars when Steph goes down", Kerr said.

Every day in the National Basketball Association there is a lot to unpack, so every weekday morning throughout the season we will give you the three things you need to know from the last 24 hours in the National Basketball Association. With both players on the same roster, the Warriors are nearly unbeatable on a regular basis and I both of them to have big games against the Spurs on Thursday night. With that being said, I'm still taking the Warriors over this struggling Timberwolves outfit who have only covered on two of their last 11 games. The injury is not expected to be serious, but it is the same ankle he has now rolled four times since December.

Behind Butler, Karl Anthony Towns - the second-leading scorer for the T-Wolves - is averaging 20 points per game and 12 rebounds per game. The marks the fourth time this season that Curry has injured his ankle. He'll have plenty of time to get in his groove.

Steph Curry Went To The Locker Room After His Rolling His Ankle Against The Spurs (UPDATE)

The NBA Finals MVP blocked two shots in the first half to set a new career high for a season and now has 108, besting the 105 blocks he had in 2012-13. Kevin Durant led the way with 37 points and 11 rebounds and Draymond Green chipped in a triple-double (11 points, 12 rebounds, and ten assists) as Golden State overcame a late deficit to beat San Antonio 110-107. The Warriors rank first in offensive efficiency, while the Spurs are second in defensive efficiency. Curry sat on the bench during the Warriors' timeout before returning to the court and making a pair of free throws. The Blazers' streak started when they beat Golden State 123-117 at the Moda Center on February 14, the last game before the All-Star break. He won't play Saturday at Portland.

Golden State is 51-14, now in second in the Western Conference behind the Houston Rockets. "I haven't heard of anything like this before but I don't think it will keep him out too long and hopefully it gets resolved". "He wanted to lobby to come back in the game, but we wouldn't let him".

San Antonio ranks 16th in steals allowed per game (7.9) while Golden State ranks 29th (8.9).

Quinn Cook was forced into the starting lineup in Curry's absence and scored 8 points with 0 assists while playing 30 minutes in Portland.

In the last few years, Curry has been relatively injury free, which obviously helps the Warriors with what they want to do, which is win more championships. He now has six seasons with 200-plus 3s.
