Warriors' Stephen Curry out at least two weeks

An MRI completed in Charlotte found no structural damage. However, there's concern given Curry's early injury history with his surgically-repaired ankle.

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry will miss at least the next two weeks with a sprained right ankle, the team announced in a statement on Tuesday.

An MRI done in Charlotte found no structural damage. The Warriors currently plan to re-evaluate the two-time MVP's ankle sprain after two weeks.

Curry injured going for a steal, and his stepping on Pelicans guard E'Twaun Moore's foot during a Warriors 125-115 over New Orleans.

"It was a dumb play because I tried to go for a steal. 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."

He's currently averaging 26.3 points, 6.6 assists and 5.1 rebounds per game this season

The Warriors' offensive rating is 118.9 with Curry on the floor and 106.7 when he is off - entirely due to his ability to stretch the floor unlike anyone in league history. Any medium to long-term absence would shrink the floor, and significantly affect the Warriors.
