Friday’s game 3 loss to the San Antonio Spurs certainly hurt the Golden State Warriors, but what was even more concerning was Stephen Curry’s health. Curry has had countless of issues with his ankles, and sprained it again in the game.
While Mark Jackson and the Warriors are still uncertain of whether Curry will be able to play on Sunday, his X-rays came back negative:
X-rays last night on Stephen Curry's left ankle were negative. Warriors unsure if he will play Sunday, Mark Jackson says.

Even before he sprained his ankle, Curry was (for once) struggling with his shot in game 3. However, the injury could not have come at a worse time and Steph will be in a race against time to get ready for Sunday’s contest, most likely receiving constant treatment all the way up until tip-off. Without Curry, Golden State could hardly manage another upset in these playoffs. Tony Parker also picked up a calf injury in the game, so the starting point guards for both teams are banged up.
