Stephen Curry Says He’ll Play in Game 2 vs. Rockets

by April 17, 2016

Stephen Curry rolled his ankle during the second quarter of Saturday’s blowout Game 1 win over the Rockets and didn’t play in the fourth quarter at all. Curry finished with 24 points but more importantly, everyone’s wondering will he play in Game 2? If you ask Curry himself, the answer is a resounding yes—”I don’t see a scenario where I’ll be out.” More, from Sam Amick of USA TODAY:

If Stephen Curry has anything to say about it, he will play in Game 2 against the Houston Rockets on Monday.


Never mind the fact that the Golden State Warriors star is listed as questionable.


“Right now I don’t see a scenario where I’ll be out,” said Curry, who turned his right ankle in the second quarter of a Game 1 win over the Rockets (104-78) at Oracle Arena on Saturday. “Obviously, if it’s not right and at risk of further injury or whatnot, that’s the only thing that I think we have to worry about. Pain tolerance and all that stuff, I kind of know what I can deal with on the court, but you don’t want anything more serious to happen favoring an ankle or whatnot. So that’s what we’ll pay attention to the next few days.”
