Curry tests right ankle after tweak, then leaves in third quarter vs Hawks

Though he returned in the second quarter after tweaking his right ankle late in the first quarter, Stephen Curry left in the third quarter of the Warriors-Hawks game Friday night and did not return.

Curry sustained the tweak when while in defensive pursuit, his right foot landed atop the left foot of center Zaza Pachulia. Curry left the game with 1:22 remaining in the opening quarter.

He returned with 7:18 left in the half and scored 15 points before the break. He opened the third quarter but left the game for good with 6:24 remaining in the quarter.

Curry scored 28 points, 18 of which came after he tweaked the right ankle, the same ankle he sprained on Dec. 4, forcing him out of the lineup for the next 11 games.

NASCAR's Bubba Wallace not target of hate crime, FBI investigation says

After an emotional Monday at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama, the FBI concluded African American NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace was not the target of a hate crime.

It appeared a noose was found in Wallace's garage stall at Talladega on Sunday, but an FBI investigation showed the garage door pull rope fashioned like a noose had been placed their months ago. This was well before Wallace's garage assignment.

Wallace, the only Black driver in NASCAR, was accompanied by every driver and pit crew Monday as he drove to the start line. After finishing 14th, he greeted fans for an emotional post-race interview, where he said the last week had been "hell."

Athletes like Steph Curry, LeBron James and many more rallied around Wallace on Monday. Wallace has been outspoken on racism in the sport and even helped push Confederate flags out of NASCAR events and off any properties of the sport.

More will come from this investigation, and Wallace will continue his fight to push racism out of the sport he loves.
