Warriors general manager Larry Riley said point guard Stephen Curry is likely done for the season.
Curry’s sprained right ankle, which has kept him out of the lineup the last 22 games, was re-evaluated Monday night. Riley said Curry’s ankle, though it is showing signs of progress, still isn’t 100 percent.
“It doesn’t appear he’ll get there by this (coming road) trip,” Riley said. “So it’s doubtful he’ll return this season.”
The three-game road trip, which starts Friday inDallas, was Curry’s last chance to play a meaningful stretch of games this season. Even if Curry were 100 percent when the team returned from the trip, Riley said he sees “no point” in playing Curry for just the final two games of the season.
“He still wants to play,” Riley said, “but he understands he’s not 100 percent.”
