A pair of games is all Stephen Curry will have been forced to miss after re-injuring his right ankle.

The two-time NBA Most Valuable Player will return to the lineup Saturday evening when his Golden State Warriors take on the Toronto Raptors at the Air Canada Centre.

Curry frequently shines when facing the Raptors. In 15 games against Toronto, the Warriors guard is averaging 30.2 points per game - his highest output against any team in the league, courtesy of Basketball Reference. He also chips in with eight assists and 4.3 rebounds per game against the Raptors.

Curry's inclusion isn't the only bad news for Toronto. It will also be without starting point guard Kyle Lowry for a third consecutive game due to a bruised tailbone.
