Stephen Curry hurts right ankle in practice

Stephen Curry has injured his right ankle again.

The Golden State Warriors point guard sat out Wednesday night against the Miami Heat after spraining his twice surgically repaired ankle during the team’s morning practice. Warriors coach Mark Jackson said Curry, who already had been nursing a sprained right knee, injured his ankle going for a loose ball.

The team said X-rays on Curry’s ankle were negative. Jackson said the injury doesn’t appear serious and he doesn’t expect Curry to be sidelined long. Jarrett Jack started in Curry’s place.

“It was really a freak injury,” Jackson said. “I’m not a doctor, but I can’t imagine it turning into something more. I won’t get into timetables and all of that, but we’re not concerned.”
