Draymond Green steps up after Stephen Curry sustains ankle injury

Draymond Green steps up after Stephen Curry sustains ankle injury

The All-Star won't travel with the team to Portland, and as a precaution he'll be held out of Sunday's game, giving him almost a full week of rest before a potential return Wednesday, when the Warriors return home to host the Lakers. Long was the first woman drafted by an National Basketball Association team. He's missed 13 games this because of injuries to his ankles, including 11 in December.

The Warriors called a timeout after the play but Curry received little medical attention on the bench.

It's a familiar position for this Warriors team, but one that, after the years Curry spent dealing with one of these sprains after another, both he and the Warriors had hoped was in the past.

After Draymond Green stole the ball from Spurs point guard Dejounte Murray, he threw a hit-ahead pass to Klay Thompson, who hit Curry in stride as he streaked down the court to get out on the break. Curry sprained his right ankle only two minutes into Thursday's win over the Spurs, and former Duke standout Quinn Cook started the second half in his place.

Curry scored two points in two minutes against the Spurs.

The Warriors have been very cautious this season as they are trying to maintain their health for the playoffs. The Warriors ensured team balance.

It's getting to the point where you have to wonder if it's worth it for the Warriors to even bother sending Curry out there for any additional regular season games.

After a thorough evaluation in the locker room, the Warriors decided not to let Curry return to action.

If the Warriors are not healthy - and, specifically, if Curry is not - then the door is opened for others to spoil their fun.

Midway through the second quarter, though, the team announced that Curry wouldn't be making a comeback later Thursday evening.

For one night, though, the Warriors adjusted fine without Curry.
