NBA Predictions: Will Curry, Warriors dominate visiting Spurs? 3/8/18

Stephen Curry James Harden Anthony Davis Damian Lillard

Head coach Steve Kerr confirmed after the contest that Curry will not travel with the team to face the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday night and will also miss Sunday's clash with the Minnesota Timberwolves. The earliest he could return is Wednesday against the Lakers.

It's the fourth time Curry - who has a history of ankle sprains - has sprained his ankle this season. So, there's little reason for Curry to play anytime soon; the Warriors should be able to handle these teams just fine without him. The Warriors then immediately yanked Curry out for Cook. There were 13 ties and seven lead changes.

Are the Golden State Warriors going to cover the big spread at home tonight when they play the San Antonio Spurs at 10:30PM ET?

The San Antonio Spurs have not been playing at full-strength the entire season. He finished the night with two points in two minutes on Thursday.

The five-time All-Star is averaging 26.8 points, 6.3 assists and 5.2 rebounds per game this season. We just couldn't make a shot.

"With Steph's ankle injuries it's always a worry", Warriors teammate Draymond Green said, per ESPN's Chris Haynes. Shortly thereafter, TNT's Rosalyn Gold-Onwude reported that the Warriors were calling it a "tweaked" ankle, saying Curry was in the back doing "functionality tests" and that his return to the game was TBD. Remember, Curry had surgery on his right ankle to fix torn ligaments in May of 2011.

Midway through the second quarter, though, the team announced that Curry wouldn't be making a comeback later Thursday evening.

He spent the next day golfing at Augusta National Golf Club, and poured in 34 points in 34 minutes in Tuesday's win over Brooklyn.

"We still have three All-Stars when Steph goes down".

Since then, Curry's ankles have been nothing more than a minor problem as he's risen to become one of the NBA's elite players.

Golden State remains just half-a-game back of the Rockets for the best record in the National Basketball Association heading into a tough one Friday vs. the Trail Blazers (winners of eight in a row, and sitting at home rested for this one).
