Steph Curry continues to have tough luck with his right ankle this season.
Less than two weeks after returning from a sprain that cost him 11 games, the Golden State Warriors point guard slipped near the end of shootaround Wednesday morning, and sprained his ankle again. He will not play Wednesday night against the Los Angeles Clippers, the team announced.
In the five games he's played since returning from the initial sprain, Curry has been arguably the best player in the NBA. He's averaged 35.2 points while shooting 57.4 percent from the field and 53.2 percent (on a whopping 12.4 attempts) from 3-point range as the Warriors have gone 5-0.
Softening the blow somewhat for Golden State is that Kevin Durant is set to return after missing three games with a calf injury.
