Forget The Rockets, Stephen Curry's Ankle Is The Warriors' Biggest Problem

The Golden State Warriors will be without two-time MVP Stephen Curry for their two-game trip following his ankle injury.

After a timeout, Curry took his free throws and then the team fouled a Spurs player to get him out of the game.

As a result of the nagging ankle injury, Curry will not travel with the Warriors as they head to Portland tonight or when they visit the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday afternoon. While they are still a half-game behind the Houston Rockets in the race for the Western Conference's No. 1 seed, they are a comfortable 12 games ahead of third-seeded Portland. The Warriors hope to pick up a seventh straight win when they host the San Antonio Spurs this Thursday night. Fortunately for the Warriors, they relied on plenty of depth in Kevin Durant's productivity (37 points), JaVale McGee's highlight reels and energy (13 points), Nick Young's sharp shooting (12 points ) and Draymond Green's versatility (11 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists).

Klay Thompson did something Friday that's only been done before by Stephen Curry. Minnesota are 4-7 without him, including 2-5 against opponents with winning records. He finished with 25 points, but worked hard all night for those points against a vastly improved defensive Blazers team. In the last meeting between these teams, the Spurs played well early before dissolving into disarray. These teams are the San Antonio Spurs and the Golden State Warriors.

The Warriors have emerged victorious in both contests against the Spurs this year, including a 122-105 victory the last time these teams met. "We're just playing games, we're just trying to get wins".

We also go through the top Warriors headlines of the week including Steve Kerr joining a panel to discuss gun-control issues in America. Murray's youth showed when he gave up a costly turnover in the fourth quarter which led to a Durant jumper to tie the game at 105 a-piece.

Curry scored two points in two minutes against the Spurs.

"We still have three All-Stars when Steph goes down", Kerr said.

The Spurs connected on just six of their 22 3-point attempts.

Iguodala has a left wrist sprain, which might be precautionary but is going to need some maintenance rest going forward.
