After Another Failed Pre-Game Test, Warriors PG Stephen Curry to Third Consecutive Start

Warriors point guard Stephen Curry still cannot plant-and-pivot without pain and therefore is officially out for Friday night’s game at Philadelphia.

Curry won’t play until his right foot is completely healed. He will test it out again before Sunday’s game at Toronto. At that point, he will have had 10 days of rest since spraining the deltoid ligament in his right foot.

As was the case last game, Curry will be available for spot duty. Wednesday at Atlanta, he served as a decoy for a three-second stint, spreading the floor for David Lee to convert the game-winning basket.  But Mark Jackson cautioned that Curry is not just a decoy in those situations.

MARK JACKSON: “He can make a shot. I double dog dare you to leave him open.”
