Stephen Curry May Sit Out the Next Two Games

UPDATE: Stephen Curry is out for tonight’s tilt in Dallas.


According to Golden State Warriors interim head coach Luke Walton, Stephen Curry’s ailing left leg may keep the MVP on the sidelines for the next two games.

The defending champs (29-1) have a back-to-back in Dallas and Houston starting Wednesday night.

Curry was held out of practice Tuesday to get treatment on his leg.

Per the Bay Area News Group:

Walton said he believed Curry was suffering from something similar to the calf strain that he sustained in his right leg last week but did not know the specifics. Curry after notching a triple-double in three quarters against the Kings would only say afterward that he was working through “the regular-season grind.”


“There’s a chance that he won’t play in one or both,” Walton said. “That’s probably going to be a game-time decision or at least determined on how he’s feeling tomorrow. […] He hasn’t said anything except for he wants to play. Even last night in the game when I saw him in the game limping, and I tried to take him out, he gave the wave-off and said that it was fine.”


Draymond Green (sore ankle) and Festus Ezeli (sore right foot) were among those who did not practice, as only eight Warriors chose to do so. Walton said the availability of many of his players was “up in the air.” […] “Guys are a little banged up, and it’s just difficult right now with the other injuries that we have because to rest one or two guys is putting lot more stress on some of the other guys,” Walton said. “If everyone was healthy right now, we’d probably most likely be resting a couple guys on this trip for at least one of the games. With the injuries we have, it’s a little more complicated than that.”
