Stephen Curry Injury: Warriors Guard To Miss All-Star Skills Challenge

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry won't be defending his title at the Taco Bell Skills Challenge.

Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry will not get the chance to defend his title in the Taco Bell NBA Skills Challenge during the upcoming All-Star weekend in Orlando due to the right foot strain he suffered in Wednesday night's victory over the Phoenix Suns.

Lance Young, Curry's agent, told NBA.com's Sekou Smith that Steph will use the weekend off to rest up and get some rehab done on his foot, though the injury is said to be separate from his oft injured ankle. He's already missed nine games this shortened season due to that pesky ankle.

Curry has been listed as day-to-day, and won't have to suit up again until next Tuesday, giving him ample time to get healthy.

Curry could have become only the third player to win back-to-back Skill Challenge challenges, along with Steve Nash and Dwyane Wade.

This year's Challenge will have Kyrie Irving, Tony Parker, John Wall, Russell Westbrook and Deron Williams.
