OAKLAND – Wearing red shower sandals with a black sock on his right foot, Stephen Curry walked out of the Warriors practice facility early Sunday afternoon without any trace of a limp.
That’s about as good a sign as the Warriors can expect after Curry tweaked his right ankle Saturday afternoon in the second quarter of a Game 1 victory over Houston.
Curry expressed optimism, saying this “tweak” is not as severe as that sustained to his left ankle on Feb. 27 in Oklahoma City. The reigning MVP left that game, only to return and score the game-winning basket. He did, however, miss the next game.
“This one is waaay better,” Curry told CSNBayArea.com before exiting the premises.
Curry didn’t participate in the team’s light practice, instead getting treatment on the ankle. He is listed as questionable for Game 2 Monday night.
"He'll get treatment today, go get some rest, get off his feet, and we'll do the same thing tomorrow at shootaround and see how he's feeling," coach Steve Kerr said. “We’ll assess whether there's risk. If there is, we won't play him."
Shaun Livingston would start at point guard if Curry is unable to play, or if the Warriors want to avoid risk, Kerr said.
Curry attempted to return to Game 1, coming out for the second half, but lasted only three minutes before Kerr decided to sit him out for the remainder of the game.
