About halfway through the morning session, second-year Warriors coach Mark Jackson gave Stephen Curry the bad news: The starting point guard was being held out for the rest of the practice.

"He looked at me and said, 'That's it?' " Jackson said. "I thought I was back home with my kids."

"It's too early to (put up a fight)," Curry said with a smile. "I think I threw my mouthpiece, and that was about it."

Curry's oft-injured right ankle is one of the key storylines of training camp. After undergoing arthroscopic surgery in April, Curry was cleared for full practice last month and has been working out with his teammates since mid-September.

However, Curry said the drills and scrimmaging the Warriors completed Tuesday during the first practice of training camp were the most intense action his ankle has endured. Curry said he took part in some one-on-one situations and several drills and went over defensive principles.
