Game Preview: Golden State Warriors at Toronto Raptors
Steph Curry re-aggravated his ankle injury in shootaround ahead of Wednesday’s game against the Clippers. After missing the Warriors’ past two games, Curry is expected to return to the court on Saturday night against the Raptors.
Steph Curry missed nearly the entire month of December after suffering a fairly severe sprained ankle against the Pelicans. Curry missed 11 games with that ankle injury, but fortunately the Warriors were able to go 9-2 with Steph on the bench as they relied on their other MVP Kevin Durant.
Curry picked up right where he left off as he scored 38 points in his first game back in the lineup against the Grizzlies. The Warriors went 5-0 after Curry came back from his sprained ankle, and he was absolutely on fire scoring 35.2 points per game during that span.
Unfortunately, Curry suffered a setback as he rolled that right ankle again in pregame shootaround on Wednesday. The Warriors went on to lose that game against the Clippers as Curry went back to the bench.
Golden State bounced back by beating the Bucks last night in the first game of a daunting five-game road trip. They continue their road trip in Toronto as they face the Raptors tonight, but Warriors PR announced that Curry is “probable” for a matchup against one of the best teams in the East.
Kevin Durant will welcome the return of another MVP in the lineup as he’s had to carry the load on offense with Curry on the bench. The Warriors will need to be at full strength to win their second consecutive game to begin this road trip.
