Stephen Curry Out Again With Ankle Problem

As we predicted in our last blog post about Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry, he is out once again after spraining his right ankle.
"It's really just a freak injury. We don't do much in shootaround- (he was) just chasing after a loose rebound. It's unfortunate. We will shut him down. He'll get treatment, and we'll see where he goes," said coach Mark Jackson before Wednesday night's game against Miami.
Curry landed on the foot of rookie Festus Ezeli during the shootaround on Wednesday morning. X-rays came back negative, but his return will be based on how his right ankle progresses.
"I haven't had a sprain in two and a half months, so my ligaments are probably the healthiest they've been," said Curry. "Just have to wait and see how they recover. I haven't been in this situation for a while. I don't know if it will be a fast or slow kind of deal just because after two surgeries and all that process, it finally had time to cool down. So we'll see tomorrow."
""I'm not a doctor," said Jackson, "but I can't imagine it turning into something more. I'm not going to get into timetables and all of that. We're not concerned."
Jarrett Jack started in Curry's place on Wednesday. Jack was acquired in the offseason from New Orleans for the specific reason of filling in for Curry when he injured his ankle.
Without Curry, the Warriors' offense is lacking and Jackson will have to readjust how he ends games. Jack is typically at point with Curry and guard Kay Thompson is on the wings. This means rookie forward Harrison Barnes will get more crunchtime minutes.
"It will be a feel of flow. I've very confident in my guys... I don't know who will close the ballgame. The game will dictate that," Jackson said.
