The press release from the Warriors was good news: Results of an MRI on Stephen Curry’s injured right ankle confirmed the original diagnosis. It’s just a sprain and Curry is listed as day-to-day.
Curry, who struggled in the Warriors’ season opener against the Clippers but was fantastic Monday night against the Bulls before re-tweaking his injured ankle late, is the Warriors’ best player. It was plain to see the difference in this Warriors squad when Curry is hobbled (the loss to the Clippers) and when he’s moving without restraint (the win against the Bulls). The Warriors need a fast recovery from Curry, especially in this shortened season.
