The last few days feel like a whirlwind and having back-to-back Golden State Warriors games to tend to is certainly part of that.

But amidst all of that, we cannot forget that Stephen Curry's troublesome ankle became a problem once more in last night's game against the Dallas Mavericks. Curry returned to that game, but Monte Poole of CSN reported earlier today that he could be a game-time decision.

Curry's ankle -- Though the back-to-back MVP downplayed the "tweak" of his right ankle on Wednesday, it's worth watching to see if there are any lingering effects. Coach Steve Kerr won't take any chances, so Curry could be a game time decision.

I, for one, am so terrified of that ankle spelling doom for the Warriors one day that I'd sort of prefer him to sit during the second end of a back-to-back on the road against a 3-4 team... but I'll trust the Warriors' leadership on this one.
