The incident took place about a minute before his Golden State Warriors scored a 125-115 road win over the New Orleans Pelicans, when the two-time NBA MVP went for a steal.

Stephen Curry (ankle) is listed as doubtful in the game notes for Wednesday's matchup vs. the Hornets. Curry was competing until the final buzzer, though, and it led to him suffering a bum wheel.

X-rays were negative and Curry later returned to the locker room with his foot heavily wrapped.

Nevertheless, it is never good to see a superstar go down like this. Curry injured his ankle on Monday night against the New Orleans Pelicans. After the game, he was in a walking boot with crutches.


Curry is averaging 26.3 points, 6.6 assists and 5.1 rebounds while shooting a career-worst 38.1 percent from three for the 19-6 Warriors. The Hornets aren't yet the elite defensive team coach Steve Clifford says they can be. "But all things considered, knowing I've been through this before on this ankle, knowing the surgical repairs from five, six years ago are fine, I should be able to bounce back".

"That I had to call my dad and tell him I can't play golf tomorrow in Charlotte.Nah, just playing", Curry joked.

The Warriors' next game is in Curry's hometown of Charlotte on Wednesday.
