Steph Curry, missed two games due to a sprained ankle, but returned to action Sunday (April 24) after missing the past two games with a sprained right ankle. Now he will undergo an MRI on Monday after spraining his knee during Golden State’s 121-94 win over Houston.
Curry slipped while guarding Houston’s Trevor Ariza during game four and at banged his right knee on the hardwood floor. Curry grabbed his knee and limped off to the locker room.
The MVP returned to the court after halftime and tested out his knee, but he stopped and shook his head toward the bench. Shortly after, he went back to the locker room and was ruled out just after the second half began. Shaun Livingston took his spot in the lineup.
Curry had six points on 2-of-9 shooting, including 1-of-7 from the 3-point line.
It appeared that Curry slipped on a wet spot, Houston’s Donatas Motiejunas slid across the court for a few yards near where Curry was hurt.
The Rockets’ point guard Patrick Beverley strained his right leg, and the team announced, before the start of the second half, that he would not return.
