Charlotte Hornets vs. Golden State Warriors - 12/6/17 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction


On Monday, Curry rolled his ankle in the final minute of Golden State's 125-115 win over the Pelicans.

That's a scary injury no matter who it is, so Curry nearly appeared relieved when X-rays came back negative and he was diagnosed with a right ankle sprain.

As he alluded to, Curry had surgery on his right ankle in May 2011 and again in April 2012 and has played at least 78 games in each of the seasons that followed, proving that he has been durable. "It's more on the - I won't just bounce back [Tuesday] morning waking up like, 'all right, I should be whatever, ' just because of swelling", Curry said after the game, as reported by ESPN.

With the Warriors holding a 10-point lead over the Pelicans with 1:12 left in the game, Curry attempted to go for a steal on a pass from Dante Cunningham to E'Twaun Moore. X-rays were negative and he will undergo an MRI on Tuesday, the Warriors confirmed.

After the game, Curry needed crutches to go from the locker room to the X-ray room. "I shouldn't say that".

Curry has a history with ankle injuries, too - he got surgery in 2011 to fix torn ligaments in the same right ankle and has battled numerous ankle ailments since.

"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".

Let's be honest, the Golden State Warriors would still be insanely good, even without Steph Curry.
