  • Stephen Curry (ankle) is not with the team for Friday's game in Detroit.
    Advice: He went back home to work on his rehab, so this really doesn't change his timetable. The Warriors won't be rushing Curry back from his right ankle injury, which is the same ankle that had two surgeries earlier in his career. Expect Kevin Durant to feast while Shaun Livingston and Quinn Cook handle the point until Pat McCaw (concussion) is back.
  • Stephen Curry (ankle) is listed as doubtful in the game notes for Wednesday's matchup vs. the Hornets.
    Advice: Curry rolled his ankle in the final minute of the Warriors win over the Pelicans on Monday night. He immediately left the game and was wearing a walking boot and on crutches when he addressed the media afterward. Fortunately, the X-rays on the ankle came back negative. However, we still don't know if there is any other damage he will have to deal with going forward. Curry would love to play in his hometown of Charlotte, but it is extremely unlikely that he will be medically cleared. We should have an update from the team on Tuesday.
  • ESPN's Chris Haynes is reporting that Stephen Curry (ankle) will not play Wednesday vs. the Hornets.
    Advice: Curry was fully expected to miss at least one game once he was seen using crutches and wearing a walking boot after spraining his right ankle late in Monday night's win over the Pelicans. The X-rays came back clean, but we are still waiting MRI results, which will determine how long Curry will be sidelined. Per Hayes, MRI results are expected later in the day. Shaun Livingston will likely draw the start at PG on Wednesday. Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green will be asked to shoulder more of the offensive load with Curry out.
  • Curry is going to miss at least the next two weeks, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, due to a sprained right ankle.
    Advice: Though an MRI and X-rays were negative and showed no structural damage, Curry has some serious swelling. The Warriors will re-evaluate him "in a couple of weeks," according to the report, and surely will be cautious with their superstar. Curry got hurt in the closing seconds of Monday's win over the Pelicans, then left the locker room on crutches and was wearing a walking boot after scoring 31 points.

  • Stephen Curry (ankle) will be re-evaluated "in a couple of weeks," according to Adrian Wojnarowski‏ of ESPN.
    Advice: Shams Charania of the Vertical is reporting that Curry's MRI result revealed no structural damage on his injured right ankle, but that there is significant swelling. ESPN's Chris Hayes confirmed Woj's report, tweeting that Curry's ankle is "stable and intact," and that he'll be re-evaluated in two weeks. In the two games that Curry missed previously this season, Shaun Livingston and Patrick McCaw (nose contusion) started one game apiece. Fantasy studs Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green will likely see their usage rates rise with Curry sidelined. The good news is that if Curry misses exactly two weeks, he'll only miss five games with the new balanced schedule the NBA has implemented.
  • Curry's lingering hand issue won't keep him out of Monday's contest.
    Advice: He's scored at least 30 points half of his last eight contests.
    Stats Inc.
  • Stephen Curry (bruised right hand) is listed as probable for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans.
    Advice: Curry's injury is expected to linger for a while, but you can't really tell by his play as he's averaging 27.0 points in three outings since returning from a one-game absence. Curry only played 30 minutes on Sunday, so he should be relatively fresh. We'll confirm that he's active, but there's no way he sits since the Warriors are expected to rest Shaun Livingston.
  • Stephen Curry (hand) and Andre Iguodala (knee) will be available to play Monday vs. the Pelicans.
    Advice: Curry lit up the Heat to the tune of 30 points on 11-of-16 shooting during Sunday's win, so clearly the bruised shooting hand was not an issue, and Curry himself has said he plans to play through this minor ailment. Iguodala will be returning from a two-game absence, which will result in fewer minutes for Omri Casspi. Feel free to get Curry active, as he could see some extra minutes tonight with Shaun Livingston (suspension) unavailable.
  • Stephen Curry (right ankle) left the locker room on crutches and is set to undergo X-rays.
    Advice: He had a nasty ankle roll in the final minute of the fourth quarter and left the game for good with a significant limp. Coach Steve Kerr said he didn't have an update on the severity, but it sounds like we should have another update soon. Stay tuned.
  • X-rays on Stephen Curry's right ankle came back negative.
    Advice: This is obviously good news, but Curry is not out of the woods yet. He has a lot of swelling, and while the Warriors are calling it a sprain for now, he'll undergo further evaluation on Tuesday which will include an MRI. If Curry misses time, fantasy studs like Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green will all see increased roles, while Patrick McCaw, Shaun Livingston and Andre Iguodala would have to step up as well. In the two games that Curry missed previously, Livingston and McCaw each got a start.
