Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry made an early exit from Saturday night's game against the Wizards with a rolled ankle. Although the X-rays came back negative, his Monday night return against the Lakers is still up in the air.

Curry received treatment on his ankle Sunday and will receive further treatment Monday to see if he can play. Curry said he was optimistic he'll play, but he will likely be a game time decision.

Before injuring his ankle on Saturday, Curry was shooting lights-out against the Wizards, scoring 35 points on 13-for-18 FGs. He also scored 30 points last Monday against the Hornets.

The team is tentatively optimistic in their success against the Lakers without Curry.

"We've all got to play more collectively and be aggressive," Warriors guard Klay Thompson said. "We've got to share the ball and be unselfish. We can't do it individually. Steph is one of our leaders. We've won without him before, but it's not easy to replace Stephen Curry."
If Curry's ankle treatment is anything like Kobe's, he should be good to go on Monday night.
