Stephen Curry to Sit Out vs. Trail Blazers, Timberwolves with Ankle Injury

John Hefti-USA TODAY Sports

The Timberwolves are also dealing with the loss of an injured superstar as Jimmy Butler has missed the past five games with a knee injury.

The Warriors visit the Portland Trail Blazers tonight, and will take on the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday.

The Golden State Warriors will be without two-time MVP Steph Curry for at least the next two games as he recovers from a lingering ankle injury, according to Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

The Golden State Warriors (50-14) welcome the San Antonio Spurs (37-27) in a matchup that pits sensational offense against stifling defense.

Klay Thompson did something Friday that's only been done before by Stephen Curry.

What we do know, though, is that after several mostly incident-free years following his early-career woes, Curry's right ankle has now suffered multiple injuries in the past couple of months ...

Green pitched in statistically as well, notching a triple-double with 11 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists while ratcheting up the defensive intensity in the fourth, helping the Warriors hold San Antonio to just 20 points.

With Stephen Curry not on the trip, there were plenty of extra shots to go around on the offensive side of the ball.

After that November 8 matchup, Warriors coach Steve Kerr told The Associated Press he "kind of likes the idea" of playing a man down. Aldridge was able to return after missing just one game, but he didn't look like himself on a night that he scored just seven points. And the Spurs posted 56 points in the paint and 21 second-chance points.

Curry performed functionality tests in the locker room but the Warriors made a decision to keep him out of the game with what they called a tweaked right ankle.

"I actually like when we have to sit somebody", Kerr said. "He wanted to lobby to come back in the game, but we wouldn't let him". This season, Curry is averaging 26.8 points per game along with 6.3 assists per game.

Golden State is a 12-point favorite on the opening line, while the Over/Under (O/U) for the game opened at 222 points. The Warriors ensured team balance.

Tipoff is set for 3:30 the Target Center. Warriors reserve forward Andre Iguodala missed Thursday's game because of a left wrist sprain.
