Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry re-injured his surgically repaired right ankle in Tuesday’s loss against the Sacramento Kings, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Curry re-injured the ankle while defending Jimmer Fredette’s crossover at the top of the key. Curry then crawled toward the sideline, visibly in pain. Team doctors have diagnosed the injury as a sprain and Curry will be re-examined today.
Last season, Curry severely sprained his right ankle three times. This offseason, after surgically repairing the ankle with a noted specialist, the Warriors believed any instability in the ankle had been repaired.
“We got to the bottom of it, got it fixed, and it shouldn’t be any problem going forward,” general manager Larry Riley told reporters this offseason, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Before re-injuring his ankle, Curry played 15 minutes and tallied seven points, five assists and three steals.
