Curry Admits Ankle Still Sore After Games
Warriors guard Stephen Curry missed eight consecutive games with a sprained right ankle, which has been a recurring problem since he was drafted in 2009 out of Davidson. Curry admitted the ankle is still bothersome after games.
“The ankle is feeling good,” said Curry, who has has now played in four straight games heading into Tuesday’s matchup with the Kings. “It doesn’t respond well after games. It takes me a while to get back, get the soreness out of it. But during the games I don’t think about it, it feels good. You can be in shape or what you think is in decent shape to play, but when it gets to the schedule we have and being ready in the fourth quarter that’s a process after missing so much time.
“So, still working on being in shape for the minutes I’m playing. But I’m doing pretty well.”
Curry is averaging 19 points, 5 assists, and 4 rebounds over his past four games.
