Warriors' Curry (ankle) out again vs. Bucks

Golden State Warriors two-time MVP Stephen Curry will miss his second consecutive game with a right ankle sprain.

The Warriors announced that Curry will be held out of Friday night's road game against the Milwaukee Bucks. He participated in a full practice in Milwaukee on Thursday but was listed as questionable.

Curry, averaging 27.9 points per game, was sidelined for Golden State's Wednesday night loss to the Los Angeles Clippers after slipping during the morning shootaround, aggravating his troublesome right ankle. The Warriors' four-time All-Star missed nearly the entire month of December (11 games) with a sprained right ankle.

Without Curry in the lineup Wednesday, the Warriors (33-9) saw their five-game winning streak snapped in a 125-106 home loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.

Curry has been dominant since returning from the injury on Dec. 30, averaging 35.2 points and hitting 33 3-pointers (53.2 percent).

Friday marks the first of a five-game road trip for the Warriors and, with the likes of Toronto (on Saturday), Cleveland and Houston on the trip, sitting Curry against the Bucks is more of a precautionary measure, ESPN reported.
