Eventually, Curry went to the locker room, had his ankle re-taped and then sat for the remainder of the Warriors' 110-107 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday. Curry did not get on the plane postgame with the Warriors to fly up to Portland for Friday night's contest, nor will he join the team in Minnesota for a weekend game against the Timberwolves.
Curry has been dealing with issues on the same ankle throughout the season.
Curry missed 11 games in December with the sprained right ankle and injured it again last Friday at Atlanta. That came about because of repeated sprained ankles during the 2010-11 season.
Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge drew a foul on Green after a 3-point attempt with 3.1 seconds left, though he made only two of three foul shots. In 13.6 minutes per game, West is averaging 7.1 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.1 blocks. Curry left the arena Thursday night wearing regular shoes, a positive sign about his ability to get back on the court soon. The Warriors ensured team balance.
Curry was able to shoot the two free throws, but immediately left the court at the 9:38 mark of the first period and never returned. There is no timetable for his return yet, but rest assured the Warriors will be overly cautious with Curry. The Warriors then determined midway through the second quarter that Curry would not return.

Golden State remains just half-a-game back of the Rockets for the best record in the National Basketball Association heading into a tough one Friday vs. the Trail Blazers (winners of eight in a row, and sitting at home rested for this one).
"It's a little different", Kerr said. "I'm thinking about our health and we'll get Steph healthy". Andre Iguodala (wrist), David West (arm) and Jordan Bell (ankle) are all battling various injuries and the team is still without second-year guard Patrick McCaw.
