Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry exited the game after twisting his ankle late in the fourth quarter of the team’s 125-122 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night. He did not return to the game.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr did not have an update on Curry’s injury immediately after the game, stating he needed to consult with the team trainers. Kerr mentioned that Curry had his right foot in an ice bath when he saw him in the locker room.

Curry’s teammates are preparing for the possibility that he may miss some games.

“I know we’re going to miss him if he does need time off,” Klay Thompson said. “We’ve been in this position before where he has had time off, and we just got to do it collectively. I know he’ll be ready to go when he does come back, whenever that is. We just wish him a speedy recovery.”

Curry, who was not in the Warriors’ locker room when reporters were allowed in, has missed three games this season—two due to right knee soreness and one for rest.

Draymond Green noted that Curry’s spirits were high following Thursday’s game.

Curry twisted his ankle on a drive to the basket with 3:51 remaining in the fourth quarter. Guarded by Chicago’s Alex Caruso and Derrick White, Curry planted his right foot and rolled it.

He attempted to walk it off, but Kerr substituted him out. Curry then headed to the locker room with Rick Celebrini, the team’s head of player health and performance.

This injury occurred just two games after the Warriors regained Andrew Wiggins, giving them a complete roster for the first time since November.

“It sucks, but everybody deals with injuries,” Green said. “You’ve just got to do the best you can in dealing with it.”

Curry finished the game with 15 points on 5-of-18 shooting, going scoreless in the fourth quarter.

If Curry does miss time, Chris Paul is expected to step into the starting lineup. Paul has started 11 games in his first season with the Warriors but has not started since early January.

“We know he is more than capable. He’s Chris Paul,” Green said. “It’s been incredible having C here, but then you have Steph going down—no one is Steph Curry in the NBA.

But knowing you are going into the game with a guy who can win you game after game after game, it definitely gives you confidence going in knowing that you are more than capable to win games.”
