Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry slipped near the end of Wednesday’s shootaround and sprained his right ankle, according to multiple reports.
The Warriors take on the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday and Curry will not play as a result of the ankle sprain.
It is the same ankle which caused Curry to miss 11 games in December.
