Steph Curry left Tuesday’s game between the Golden State Warriors and New Orleans Pelicans after suffering a mild sprain in his right foot. For precautionary reasons, the Warriors immediately ruled him out for the rest of the year.

With the top seed in the Western Conference wrapped up, Curry didn’t need to be playing anyway. Neither Kevin Durant nor Klay Thompson suited up for the game, and really the primary goal was to leave the game unhurt.

Thankfully the injury doesn’t appear serious at all, but it would be shocking if Curry plays in the season finale on Wednesday against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Still, it was a terrifying moment for Warriors fans, as Curry’s ankle very visibly twisted. Everyone held their breath as the two-time MVP took himself out of the game and headed to the locker room.

We will keep you posted if any new details of Curry’s injury are released.
