Stephen Curry was shown leaving the Golden State Warriors locker room on crutches Monday night, after a nasty ankle twist in the final minute of Golden States win over the New Orleans Pelicans. The guard was taken for X-rays, which came back negative.

Curry was injured jumping into a passing lane, past Pelicans guard E'Twaun Moore, late in the fourth quarter. His ankle rolled over on Moore's foot, with it nearly made contact with the floor and his foot bent at an acute angle.

It was a dumb play. I got caught on E'Twaun's shoe as I went by him and couldn't catch myself. So, obviously, it hurt.

Curry's foot heavily wrapped and he left on crutches. The two-time MVP will have an MRI on Tuesday to discover if there's any ligament damage.

No timetable has been set for his return.

Curry scored 31 points and racked up 11 assists before his injury, in the 125-115 victory over the Pelicans
