Curry (ankle) won't travel with Warriors

With AP Photos.Kevin Durant had 37 points, 11 rebounds and four blocked shots and nearly single-handedly led the undermanned Golden State Warriors' fourth-quarter rally past the San Antonio Spurs for a 110-107 win after Stephen Curry went down early.

After a 9-0 San Antonio run in the third, they led by nine heading into the fourth.

Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is not expected to miss too many games after suffering an ankle injury on Thursday (Friday AEDT). He played minimal minutes the rest of the game, but didn't miss a game after that.

Curry was injured in yesterday's game against the San Antonio Spurs and has a history of ankle issues. Curry scored two points in two minutes against the Spurs. He stepped on DeJounte Murray's foot after getting fouled on a layup attempt, twisting his troublesome right ankle.

Curry stayed in the game momentarily to make both free throws but then went back to the locker room to have the ankle re-taped and go through functionality tests.

The Warriors training staff reportedly tried to tape Curry's ankle to hopefully get him back in the game, but the team ultimately made a decision to sit Curry for the rest of the game based on Curry's performance during the subsequent functionality tests. He shot an efficient 14-of-26 from the field, 4-of-7 from behind the arc and 5-of-7 from the free throw line.

LaMarcus Aldridge had an excellent game for the Spurs, scoring 30 points and grabbing 17 rebounds.

"I think it's the creative genius to what he does and a flair, but also there is a fundamental aspect to the flair", Curry said in the Daily Mail. He finished with 13 points and six assists.

Golden State opened as an 11.5-point favorite before the hook was dropped, while the total has been bet up from 218 points.

Golden State is 51-14, now in second in the Western Conference behind the Houston Rockets.

After the game, head coach Steve Kerr said that Curry will not travel on the team's two-game road trip to Portland and Minnesota.
