Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry suffered a sprained ankle and was forced out of Friday night's contest against the Portland Trail Blazers at the Rose Garden, according to SB Nation's Blazer's Edge blog.

Curry will not undergo an MRI, and he will be held out of the remainder of the game for precautionary reasons. He suffered the injury just before halftime and headed to the locker room favoring the right ankle that he had surgery on in April. Curry has had a history of injuries since entering the NBA and missed 40 games a season ago because of ongoing issues in both ankles.

Prior to leaving the court on Friday, Curry scored two points on 1-for-2 shooting and dished out four assists. He played 11 minutes before exiting. Reserve guard Jarrett Jack will likely see an increase in playing time in his absence.

The Warriors are battling the Trail Blazers in Portland and are seeking their fifth win of the preseason under head coach Mark Jackson.
