Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry left Tuesday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans with a sprained right foot. Curry sustained the non-contact injury when he rolled his foot and ankle while dribbling near the 3-point line. He immediately fell and lost control of the ball.
The Warriors announced that Curry would not return for precautionary reasons. The team already was shorthanded without key contributors such as Kevin Durant (flu-like symptoms), Klay Thompson (right knee soreness), Andre Iguodala (toe) and Andrew Bogut (rest). In 2017, Curry also turned his right ankle on the Pelicans' home court. He missed almost a month because of that injury. The Warriors already have secured the top seed in the NBA's Western Conference.
