The reality already has set in for Warriors point guard Stephen Curry and his sprained right ankle. And it was punctuated by Golden State's sixth straight loss, 99-87 to the visiting Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday.

After trying so hard to get back in the court, Curry sounded as if he'd embraced the truth that his season is over. After pressuring trainers, seeing a laundry list of specialists and biting his lip through the pain, Curry's gears were shifted to offseason recovery.

"Once we came to the conclusion we only had a week left and I wasn't going to be able to play," Curry said, "I guess the decision was pretty much made for me."
