Warriors guard Stephen Curry sprained his right knee during the Warriors’ 121–94 Game 4 win against the Rockets on Sunday after slipping and falling awkwardly toward the end of the first half.

Curry was guarding forward Trevor Ariza when he failed to gain his footing and appeared to injure his leg. He then limped off to the Warriors locker room. Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Curry will undergo an MRI on Monday and that his ailing right ankle is fine.

Curry came back out for the second half with the intention of playing, but went back to the locker room. Coach Steve Kerr told ESPN’s Lisa Salters that Curry tweaked “the inside part” of his knee, and that he slipped on a wet spot on the floor.

Curry missed time earlier in the series due to an ankle injury. Golden State has a 3–1 lead with Game 5 on Wednesday at 10:30 P.M. ET.
