On Friday night, Steph Curry made his return to the hardwood after missing six games with a sprained ankle. The two-time MVP struggled out the gate but quickly found his form. Warriors fans began to gain confidence that their All-Star point guard was back, but the feeling didn't last long as Curry came up hobbling in the third quarter after being rolled on by center JaVale McGee. 

Everybody needs to relax, we are going to be fine.

Although Curry didn't reinjure his right ankle, the early analysis is a strained MCL. Curry will undergo an MRI Saturday to determine the extent of the injury. The Warriors are dealing with the injury bug at the wrong time as Kevin Durant is currently out with a fractured rib and Klay Thompson with a broken thumb. Curry ended the game with 29 points in just 26 minutes of action. The Warriors closed the game out after Curry with a final score of 106-94, and will host the Jazz tomorrow night.
