Agent: Stephen Curry to Sit Out a Game to Rest Injured Ankle

by December 27, 2011

Stephen Curry tweaked his right ankle last night (yes, again), and according to his agent, the Warriors will take on the Knicks tomorrow night without their point guard. USA Today reports: “X-rays late Monday were negative on the surgically repaired right ankle of Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry, who scored 21 points in the 99-91 win against the Chicago Bulls. But Curry will sit out Wednesday’s home game against the New York Knicks, according to his agent, Lance Young, who was at Monday’s game. Curry tweaked the ankle midway through the fourth quarter Monday, landing on the foot of Chicago’s Kyle Korver. Curry also had 10 assists, seven rebounds and six steals playing opposite MVP Derrick Rose in the first victory for rookie Golden State coach Mark Jackson. Young said Curry, who also hurt the ankle in preseason and missed three practices, doesn’t want to chance further injury. ‘They did X-Rays last night. Everything’s fine. It’s ok,’ Young said. ‘It’s just a sprain. Nothing serious. With this shortened season and back-to backs, for him to be able to get four days of rest and get ready for Saturday (against the Philadelphia 76ers), he thought that (sitting out Wednesday) probably would be the right thing.'”
