Stephen Curry’s MRI reveals no reason for concern, Warriors guard questionable for Game 3

Stephen Curry, after injuring his ankle/foot in Game 1, said he expected to play Game 2 against the Rockets.

He didn’t.

Reason to be concerned? (About Curry, not the Warriors, who cruised past Houston anyway)


Game 3 isn’t until Thursday, so Curry has time to heal. Even if the Rockets are tougher in Houston, Golden State’s 2-0 series lead allows even more patience.

The Warriors’ main goal is a championship, and they’ll need Curry for that. But they don’t need him any time soon, so don’t expect him to play until he’s truly healthy.
