No Ligament Damage to Stephen Curry’s Ankle

by December 22, 2011

There’s some good news when it comes to Stephen Curry’s re-injured ankle, in that things could’ve been much worse. Reports the Oakland Tribune: “Tests revealed Curry didn’t sustain any ligament damage in Tuesday’s exhibition loss to Sacramento. The repairs made in his offseason surgery are still intact. Curry will officially be listed as day to day, but it’s going to take some quick healing for him to be able to play Sunday, when the Warriors host the Los Angeles Clippers in their season opener. ‘Hoping for the Christmas Miracle,’ Curry said. Curry rolled his right ankle while backpedaling to the defensive end with 46.4 seconds left in the first half. He fell to the hardwood and writhed in pain after trying to walk it off. Curry sprained his right ankle three times last season and missed a total of eight games. He had surgery on the ankle in May to repair two ligament tears.”
