At the shootaround before the team’s Wednesday night game against the Los Angeles Clippers, Warriors guard Stephen Curry slipped and fell, causing him to end his workout early. This fall resulted in a ankle sprain for Curry that will keep him out of the game against the Clippers.

The news about Curry’s fall was first reported by NBC Sports Bay Area’s Monte Poole

Logan Murdock, of the Bay Area News Group, provided more information about what exactly caused Curry’s fall.

Curry returned to the locker room as fans and media awaited news on his status for the game.

An hour after Curry left the practice court, the Warriors made the official announcement that Curry would be out for the game against the Clippers.

Curry had previously missed 11 games in December because of a sprain on the same right ankle that he aggravated today during the shootaround, which was noted by ESPN’s Chris Haynes.

While hearing “Stephen Curry” and “ankle sprain” in the same sentence is enough to give all of Dub Nation extreme panic attacks, his absence from the Clippers game appears to be more precautionary than anything else.

In addition to concerns about his health and specifically his ankles (which have caused him problems throughout his career), it’s disappointing for Curry to not be able to play right now. Since returning from that ankle sprain in December, Curry has been playing his best basketball of the season in the recent weeks. One hopes that Curry’s absence from the Warriors lineup is a very brief one and that he is healthy again very soon.
