The Warriors are pleased with Steph Curry’s ankle, but he’s at least a week away from playing.

Ever since Stephen Curry went down with an ankle injury, Golden State Warriors fans have been waiting for an update. Today, two weeks after the injury occurred, that update came.

For the most part, it's good news:

The update, from the Warriors' PR department, reads:

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry, who has missed the team's last five games due to a sprained right ankle suffered Dec. 4 at New Orleans, was re-evaluated by the team's medical staff today. The evaluation indicated that the ankle is healing well and that he is making good progress overall, enabling him to progress in modified on-court workouts in the coming days. He will be re-evaluated in one week with the anticipation of having more clarity at that time on a potential return to game action plan.

It is great news that the ankle is healing well, though this does mean he'll miss the Christmas Day grudge match against the Cleveland Cavaliers. But as long as he's healing up well, I'm happy.
