Steph Curry rolled his right ankle on Tuesday at New Orleans. But it will not prevent the Warriors star from taking the floor on Saturday for Game 1 of the Warriors-Clippers series.
The only player listed on the NBA's official injury report is center Damian Jones, who is most likely out for the year after sustaining a torn pectoral muscle in December.
Just before speaking to reporters after practice on Friday, Curry and coach Steve Kerr gave positive updates on Steph's status to reporters.

Over his last 11 games, Curry is shooting over 50 percent from 3-point territory.
And over his last nine games against the Clippers, the two-time NBA MVP is averaging 36 points while shooting just under 49 percent from deep.
