While Warriors coach Steve Kerr announced that Stephen Curry is questionable for Game 2 after tweaking his right ankle during the second quarter of the Warriors’ 104–78 Game 1 win against the Rockets on Saturday, the MVP said he doesn’t see a scenario where he misses any game action.

Curry had his ankle examined on the bench toward the end of the first half, and left for the locker room to get it re-taped. He returned for the start of the third quarter, but was lifted with 9:12 to go in period and went back to the locker room. 

After the game, he told reporters he expected to play. He missed practice on Sunday and is still considered questionable for Game 2.

Curry underwent two surgeries during the 2011–12 season on his right ankle. He had 24 points on 8-of-13 shooting in 20 minutes before his second locker-room visit.

Game 2 is Monday night at 10:30 ET in Golden State.
