Warriors’ Curry (ankle) leaves on crutches, MRI scheduled

Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry left Monday’s game with an ankle injury and required crutches to exit the stadium.

An MRI exam is scheduled for Tuesday on Curry’s problematic ankle. He said after the game he expects to miss some time but will trust the athletic training staff to get back “as soon as possible.”

Curry was in good spirits in the postgame locker room and X-rays on his right ankle were negative, but he was experiencing severe swelling.

Curry had surgery on his right ankle in May 2011 and in April 2012, but played at least 78 regular-season games in each of the past five seasons.

Curry became the eighth player in NBA history to hit 2,000 career 3-pointers earlier in the game.
