Stephen Curry injury: Sprain 'was just a weird, freak play'

Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE

Stephen Curry will miss the remainder of the preseason, but should be ready for the start of the regular season after rolling his right ankle.

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry will be ready to return for the start of the regular season after injuring his right ankle on Friday, Oct. 19 against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Curry rolled his ankle while being guarded by Portland guard Wesley Matthews. After the game, he jokingly sent out a tweet about the play.

Curry told Fox Sports Radio that the injury wasn't serious and he asked head coach Mark Jackson if he could return shortly after the collision with Matthews occurred. But Jackson opted to keep his star guard off the court, not wanting to risk any further injury.

Curry added: "But last night [Friday] was just a weird, freak play in the preseason." He doesn't see it setting him back for opening night.

Curry missed 40 games last season after suffering from recurring problems with the same ankle. He previously had surgery on it before the start of the 2011-2012 season.

The Warriors open the regular season on Oct. 31 against the Phoenix Suns.
