Stephen Curry leaves game vs. Spurs with ankle injury

Damian Lillard's Case for NBA MVP

Draymond Green has been the working gear behind the Golden State Warriors' success during the past three seasons and Thursday night, it wasn't any different, as Green stepped up in the absence of Stephen Curry to propel this team to a gut-check 110-107 win over the San Antonio Spurs.

Dub Nation is certainly in prayer mood right now, and if Curry is done for the rest of the season, it may put their dreams of repeating as champions in serious doubt. "After a thorough evaluation in the locker room, the Warriors decided not to let Curry return to action".

Curry was able to shoot the two free throws, but immediately left the court at the 9:38 mark of the first period and never returned.

Superstar Stephen Curry played just two minutes in the encounter after landing awkwardly and tweaking his right ankle on a layup attempt in the opening minutes.

The Golden State Warriors (50-14) welcome the San Antonio Spurs (37-27) in a matchup that pits sensational offense against stifling defense.

LaMarcus Aldridge finished with 30 points, 17 rebounds in the loss. We just couldn't make a shot.

Curry returned 12 games later, averaging 35.2 points over five games, then missed two more games when he slipped at a shoot-around and re-sprained his right ankle.

The Warriors have emerged victorious in both contests against the Spurs this year, including a 122-105 victory the last time these teams met. Thompson scored 13 points on only 5-of-16 from the field and 1-of-5 from 3-point range.

San Antonio ranks 11th in points off turnovers allowed per game (15.5) while Golden State ranks 28th (18.9).

"We still have three All-Stars when Steph goes down", Kerr said after the game (ESPN). 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.

Golden State's coaching staff will play it safe with Curry's most recent ankle injury, and Steve Kerr already said that Steph will not be on the floor in Portland during his postgame press conference on Thusday night.
