Warriors coach Mark Jackson said he's considering sitting out point guard Stephen Curry for one of the first two preseason games. Golden State opens the exhibition schedule with a back-to-back set, Sunday vs. the Lakers in Fresno and Monday vs. Utah in Oakland. Jackson is concerned about working Curry's oft-injured right ankle too hard too soon. "I'm going to think about it, talk to Steph about it," Jackson said, "and make the right decision as far as that's concerned. I really don't want to work him on back-to-back nights."
