The Golden State Warriors will be without point guard Stephen Curry for at least the next two games, as the sharpshooter suffered a sprained right ankle Thursday night against the San Antonio Spurs.
Curry will not play versus the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday or at the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday.
This is the fourth time this season the two-time MVP has sustained a right ankle ailment.

The Warriors are currently the second seed in the Western Conference, trailing the Houston Rockets by half a game.
Some around the league believe Golden State should play it safe with Curry and hold the All-Star guard out until the ankle is 100 percent given his history with ankle issues.
On the season, Curry is averaging 26.3 points, 5.1 rebounds and 6.2 assists.
