Trainer For Stephen Curry Says Ankle Injury 'Nothing Major'

Steph Curry and Karl Anthony Towns have been incredible for their respective sides this year

The Warriors have a good chance to get back to winning ways this week as they take on three teams below.500 - the Los Angeles Lakers, Sacramento Kings and Phoenix Suns. As the questions rise, and the Houston Rockets continue to run through the entire Western Conference, it's hard to imagine a Warriors team with Draymond Green, Stephen Curry, and Kevin Durant to sit back and remain content with the way they played.

The Dubs still managed to beat San Antonio, thanks in large part to some clutch play from Kevin Durant down the stretch.

The Over/Under (O/U) for the game opened at 225 points with Golden State set as a 5-point favorite.

Smith had a big problem with that statement because he wants Durant to step up without Curry on the court.

Andrew Wiggins added 23 points for the Timberwolves, who lost twice on the road to the defending champion Warriors earlier this season by a combined 37 points. Both of those games did not involve Steph Curry as they left him at home to recover from his most recent ankle injury.

Kyrie Irving (knee) won't play Wednesday for Celtics
Kyrie Irving will miss Wednesday's game against the Washington Wizards with knee soreness, according to ESPN's Chris Forsberg . If Smart is sidelined for an extended period of time (potentially into the playoffs), it would be a big hit to the Celtics.

"Quinn has been up and down in the G-League, so it's something we got to deal with, something that we just got to figure out, work through", Durant said. And we're left to find out in the next couple months if that's enough to keep them on top.

We'll be back after the game with a wrap and some thoughts on the contest. "I am very confident in the way that we are heading, we are just in a little bit of a tough stretch". Credit must also be given to the way the Timberwolves fought back and exposed weaknesses in the Warrior's defense. Golden State is clearly at their best when at full strength, and while there's still plenty at stake in the Western Conference playoff race, the best thing the Warriors can do throughout the next month is maintain that effort, and most importantly, get healthy heading into the postseason.

However, Curry's absence affects the team in many ways. It's also a great opportunity for Durant to remind people why many believe he is the best player in the National Basketball Association, and he should be able to prove that without Curry in the lineup. Golden State finished 40.7 percent from the field, including 10-for-36 from three-point range.

In their last five games, Golden State is 0-4-1 ATS with 4 unders and 1 over.

And let's be clear: the lack of involvement on Towns' part isn't exclusively the fault of Tom Thibodeau and the offense; there are plenty of instances in which Towns is content to linger on the perimeter and even passes up mostly-open 3-point attempts - something that a 41.4 percent long-range shooter should never do, regardless of his height or position.
