Stephen Curry, who did not play on Wednesday, is now out indefinitely.
Raise the red flag. It's the same ankle that Curry has made famous since he first had issues with it. "It was really a freak injury," said Mark Jackson. "We will shut him down. He'll get treatment, and we'll see where he goes." "I don't know if it will be a fast or slow kind of heal just because after two surgeries and all that process," Curry said. X-rays were negative on Curry's ankle.

I think the Warriors are still talented enough to hold onto a playoff spot for about a month or so if that's how long Curry is out. They'll slip in the standings, obviously, but there's still enough talent there to compete. If he's out two more months or closer to the rest of the season...they may be screwed.
Can't wait to see the next SacJBShady overreaction thread about this where he talks about him and his friend wanting to kill themselves and losing it, and rambles on and on about a bunch of other "woe is me" maniacal crap.
I think he'll miss the next 4 games, and then hopefully join us for the 4-game road trip. We very well could 0-4 the next 4 games (Spurs, Clippers, Thunder, Hornets), but after that have a stretch of 7 very winnable games.
It's a long season, and we've had a good start. Plenty of other Western playoff teams are going through tough stretches now as well; Memphis, Houston, Blazers, and Wolves are all currently on 4 game losing streaks.
