  • Kawakami Why are the Warriors so angry this season? Let's try to figure it out

Stephen Curry left the Warriors locker room on crutches Monday night after twisting his ankle in the final minute of Golden State's win over the Pelicans.

Curry, who has a history of ankle injuries, underwent X-rays that came back negative.

McCaw didn't return to the game Monday after getting knocked in the nose by DeMarcus Cousins on a dunk attempt midway through the second quarter.

"I hadn't done that one in a while", Curry said after the game, via ESPN.com.

Curry's right foot rolled over Moore's foot and the Warriors point guard fell to the floor.

Curry has been diagnosed with a sprained right ankle.

Curry, 29, suffered the injury late in the Warriors' 125-115 road victory in New Orleans. The Hornets aren't yet the elite defensive team coach Steve Clifford says they can be. He had recurring ankle injuries early in his career, playing in just 26 games in the 2011-12 season, but has played 78 games or more in each of the past five seasons.

This season Curry has already missed two games thanks to a right thigh contusion and a bruised right hand.

"So obviously it hurt, but wanted to kind of get back here, get ice on it and get the rehab process started as soon as possible".

The Warriors' next game is in Curry's hometown of Charlotte on Wednesday.
