Stephen Curry (ankle) ruled out against Hornets

Curry rolled his surgically-repaired right ankle with less than a minute left in regulation, attempting a steal, but cutting into E'Twaun Moore's path and stepping on his shoe, which caused the injury.

Curry was dealing with a right hand contusion through the last four games, but this can prove an injury much more hard to recover from, as it impedes his lateral mobility and the explosion off his right foot. Curry is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Tuesday, and the results should give some clarity on his recovery timetable.

Curry has been diagnosed with a sprained right ankle.

Curry, a native of Akron, Ohio, fought through repeated ankle injuries and surgery on a torn ligament early in his career to emerge as the NBA's best and perhaps most revolutionary point guard in a generation.

This season Curry has already missed two games thanks to a right thigh contusion and a bruised right hand.

"That I had to call my dad and tell him I can't play golf tomorrow in Charlotte.Nah, just playing", Curry joked. "Obviously, it hurt. Just wanted to get back here and get ice on it and get the rehab process start as soon as possible".

"Yeah, I always look forward to that trip, playing in that arena and playing in front of people that seen me grow up".
