He will have an MRI on Tuesday to determine if there is any ligament damage.

Curry is averaging 45.1 FanDuel points in 23 games this season. He got up and hobbled down the court.

The two-time Kia Most Valuable Player was subbed out on the next stoppage of play and went immediately to the locker room for treatment. After the game, he was in a walking boot with crutches.

That's a scary injury no matter who it is, so Curry nearly appeared relieved when X-rays came back negative and he was diagnosed with a right ankle sprain.

"I haven't done that one in a while". Curry was good to go at the start of the next year, but after two more ankle sprains at the start of the year, the four-time All-Star strained a tendon in his foot, which led to his second surgery. The Hornets have been a great home team so far, but I think the Warriors still get the win and cover when it's all said and done.

Fortunately for Curry and the defending league champion Warriors, X-rays taken after the game came back negative, as reported by ESPN. "But all things considered, I should - knowing I've been through this before on this ankle and knowing the surgical repairs from like five, six years ago are fine - I should be able to bounce back".

Curry would love to play in his hometown of Charlotte, but it is extremely unlikely that he will be medically cleared. Curry was asked about the possibility of missing that game. This looks like the loss, even without Curry playing.
