Warriors’ Stephen Curry undergoes MRI on foot, questionable for Game 3
Warriors guard Stephen Curry underwent an MRI on Tuesday to examine his injured right foot, the team announced.
The Warriors said the MRI revealed “nothing of concern” and that Curry remains questionable for Game 3.
Curry discussed the matter with media on Wednesday. The Warriors are proceeding cautiously, and he spoke of avoiding problems “down the stretch” while also avoiding rust.
Curry was injured in Game 1 of Golden State’s first-round playoff series against the Houston Rockets, and sat out the entirety of Game 2, which the Warriors won in his absence to take a 2–0 lead. Curry warmed up before the game and was visibly frustrated on the court before being officially ruled out. He has been mostly healthy the past few seasons, but has a history of ankle injuries that slowed him early in his NBA career.
The Warriors won an NBA-record 73 games in the regular season and look to defend last year’s NBA title. Any extended missed time from Curry, who is likely to win his second consecutive MVP award, would place a damper on those hopes.
Golden State and Houston play next on Thursday, with the series headed to Texas for Games 3 and 4.
