Warriors point guard Stephen Curry got some good news from Wednesday’s MRI on his sprained right ankle.
Tests revealed Curry didn’t sustain any ligament damage and the repairs made in his offseason surgery are still in tact. Curry will officially be listed as day-to-day, but it’s going to take some quick healing for him to be able to play on Sunday.
CURRY: “Hoping for the Christmas Miracle.”
Curry rolled his ankle while backpedaling to the defensive end with 46.4 seconds left in the second quarter. He fell to the hardwood and writhed in pain after trying to walk it off.
Curry had surgery on the same ankle back in May. Dr. Bob Anderson, a foot and ankle specialist for OrthoCarolina in Charlotte, repaired two ligament tears. Curry sprained his right ankle three times last season and missed a total of eight games. He spent most of the offseason rehabbing the injury before being cleared for full contact on Sept. 14.
