The Warriors officially called the injury a "tweaked right ankle", and announced Curry won't return to the game.

Curry twisted his right ankle in the first quarter and was able to remain on the court for two free throws but was then subbed out and never returned. Here's a slow motion view of what happened. But this Thursday night on the road with a battered up team isn't likely to be the spot that the Spurs snap their losing streak against the Warriors. "The team said he was getting re-taped and going through tests, then Curry didn't return - but the Warriors are going to be cautious at this stage of the season with the playoffs beginning next month". Thompson scored 13 points on only 5-of-16 from the field and 1-of-5 from 3-point range.

Durant finished with a game-high 37 points for the Warriors, who beat the Spurs for the third straight time this season and fourth straight time overall.

"We still have three all-stars when Steph goes down", Kerr said. "I just want to support the kids and open the dialogue and be part of it". If you saw the play, and the way Curry limped off, you knew he wasn't coming back in the game.

"He won't play tomorrow", Warriors Coach Steve Kerr told reporters, referring to Friday night's game in Portland, "and we'll just take it day-by-day". They are not concerned about the potential of having to travel to Houston at the start of what everyone hopes is the conference finals, a series that has - at least on paper - the potential to be an all-time classic, and one that some even think the Warriors could lose.

"He said (this ankle turn) was a little bit like the Atlanta one", Kerr said (via USA Today). I got fouled on the 3-pointer, and I think that's what got me going. Andre Iguodala (wrist), David West (arm) and Jordan Bell (ankle) are all battling various injuries and the team is still without second-year guard Patrick McCaw.
