Ankle won’t keep Steph Curry, Klay Thompson from Augusta National tee time, sources say
After tweaking his right ankle in the first quarter Friday night, Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry returned to action before leaving a 114-109 win against the Atlanta Hawks for good in the third quarter.
While contesting a layup hoisted by Hawks guard Dennis Schroder, Curry came down on the foot of teammate Zaza Pachulia.
“I came back in the second [quarter], felt pretty good,” Curry said after the game. “It got a little stiff at halftime. I didn’t think I would have to sit out coming into the third quarter, but sometimes the power of [team trainer] Chelsea [Lane] and coach [Steve] Kerr wins out, and we just want to be precautionary and safe.”
“Obviously landed on my foot, and it kind of stunned me for a second, but I was able to shake it off, keep it loose,” he said. “… Frustrating, but big picture. I understand.”
After the game, Curry was walking with no signs of a limp. The Warriors don’t play again until Tuesday at home against the Brooklyn Nets.
On Thursday, Curry made waves when he posted a photo of shattered glass in his hotel room with the caption: “When you feel like you’re on the @pgatour so you gotta get some swings going in the hotel room. #idiot.”
Curry, an avid golfer who played a Web.com Tour event last year on a sponsor’s invite, was asked after Friday’s game what happened. He told NBC Sports Bay Area that he was practicing his swing in his room — something he said he does all the time — when suddenly his phone alarm went off, startling him and causing him to lose grip of his 7 iron, which landed on a glass table.
Curry said he wasn’t wearing shoes when the table shattered, but he wasn’t cut.
Led by Miles, the Toronto bench — which came in Cheap Jerseys Website averaging 41.1 points — outscored Washington’s reserves 50-15.
“We take a lot of pride in coming off that bench and changing games,” Miles said. “We’ve been calling ourselves the best bench in the league all year and I don’t Cheap Jordan Jerseys For Sale think anybody can take that from us.”
