OAKLAND -- Warriors point guard Stephen Curry injured his right ankle midway through the fourth quarter and was taken to the locker room. It is the same ankle that has given him problems over the last three seasons.
Curry sustained the injury during a fast-break at the 6:03 mark of the fourth quarter. Wizards swingman Cartier Martin reached out to grab Curry to take the foul and stop the fast break. Curry hopped while dribbling around his back to elude Martin. When he landed, he rolled his right ankle on the hardwood.
He went down immediately and grabbed his right ankle. He got up slowly and tried to walk it off. He took the two free throws before subbing out of the game.
Curry had already sprained his right ankle twice this season, causing him to miss a total of four games. He sprained it at a shootaround on January 17 when he landed on rookie center Festus Ezeli foot while chasing down a rebound.
He then sprained it in the third quarter at Toronto on Jan. 28. Then, he stepped on the foot of Raptors center Aaron Gray.
