Curry returns, but is injured again

Curry returns, but is injured again

Golden State trails the Houston Rockets by 4.5 games for the No. 1 spot in the Western Conference.

What's next are Curry's MRI results.

The incident occurred when teammate JaVale McGee elevated for a block attempt and ended up falling on the left leg of Curry.

And while watching Curry limp off the court again is a depressing sight, the other positive is that it forces him to stay off his feet to let his ankle heal even further.

After Curry made it the the sidelines, he sat in a chair, hunched over, his head tilted downwards for almost a minute.

McCaw went down hard and headed to the locker room at the 10:24 mark of the first quarter.

The timetable means Curry could return near the start of playoffs. Curry's presence dictates everything, whether it's offensive flow, passing, or spacing.

Curry will have an MRI Saturday to determine the severity of the injury, but the body language from the team during the game wasn't inspiring. The more likely scenario is that Curry will miss the beginning of the playoffs, much like Kevin Durant did when he suffered the same exact injury a year ago.

Golden State, meanwhile, has dealt with one injury after another. Kevin Durant has missed time recently with a rib injury, Klay Thompson is out with a thumb injury and Draymond Green has been a constant on Golden State's daily injury updates throughout the season. That could bring him back in a matter of weeks, possibly before the playoffs start.

Having all four of them healthy for the postseason made the Warriors virtually unbeatable last season, as they won their first 15 postseason games before eventually losing one to the Cavaliers, and settling for a 16-1 playoff record - the best in National Basketball Association history. Durant went down on February 28 and did not return until the last week of the regular season. All of these videos can be found on the Warriors Report on YouTube. Two consecutive Curry jump shots and a Nick Young three-pointer cut Atlanta's lead to eight with fewer than five minutes remaining in the second quarter.

While Curry did not address the media, the superstar point guard appeared to be in good spirits while walking out of the locker room with his wife, Ayesha Curry, by his side, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.
