Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry left Monday's 125-115 win over the New Orleans Pelicans after spraining his right ankle. X-rays taken after the game were negative. But Curry left Smoothie King Center in a walking boot and on crutches, and the angle to which his ankle was bent looked severe. "I hadn't done that one in a while," Curry said after the game. "Sprained my ankle. See how it feels tomorrow and kind of go from there. Obviously a sucky situation, but I'll be back." The injury occurred with just about a minute left in regulation as Curry and Pelicans guard E'Twaun Moore got tangled up. "It was a dumb play because I tried to go for a steal," Curry said. "And then obviously it was just a bang-bang [play]. I got caught on E'Twaun's shoe as I went by him and couldn't catch myself. So obviously it hurt, but wanted to kind of get back here, get ice on it and get the rehab process started as soon as possible." It is unclear at this point just how much time Curry might have to miss, but he appeared to be in good spirits after the game. He spent time speaking to Pelicans coach and former Warriors assistant Alvin Gentry, before making his way to the bus on crutches as fans screamed his name.
