Stephen Curry found himself in an all-too-familiar position Saturday afternoon, sitting on the sideline with a sore right ankle while the rest of his team practiced.
But the Warriors' point guard remained in good spirits and walked without much of a limp, apparently having escaped major damage from his latest brush with injury disaster the night before.
"Last night was just a weird freak play that won't set me back too bad," Curry told Fox Radio before being checked out and cleared by Dr. Richard Ferkel. "I'll be ready to go for Opening Night."
Coach Mark Jackson ruled Curry out for the team's final two preseason games (Monday against the Clippers and Tuesday against Phoenix) as a precaution. The Warriors' regular season opens Oct. 31 in Phoenix.
Curry's twice surgically repaired right ankle buckled when Portland's Wesley Matthews stepped on it in a scramble for a loose ball midway through the second quarter of the Warriors' 101-97 preseason victory Friday.
Warriors' Curry, not hobbled, will rest
