Golden State Warriors fans may have dreams of bar-stool chats about whether the Warriors can make a legitimate title run in the next couple of years, but instead all their chatter is about ankles. And unless Stephen Curry and Andrew Bogut can get over their never-ending ankle maladies, any discussions about titles will remain nothing more than pipe dreams. Currently both are sidelined, and neither appears close to playing again.
Although Curry is considered a game-time call for Friday's game against the San Antonio Spurs, it looks unlikely that we'll see him on the hardwood.
"Curry walked gingerly to the team bus, which could indicate soreness in both his injured right ankle and possibly the right knee that he hyper-extended in Sunday’s loss at Denver," wrote Rusty Simmons of SFGate.com. "He has said he won’t play until he can pass all of the medical staff’s strength tests and there is no soreness in the ankle."
As for Bogut, he has begun taking part in some portions of shootarounds. He also was sporting a brace on his ankle, which may suggest he is stepping up his aggressiveness in those sessions. Nonetheless, he said he won't play until he gets in at least a week or two of full-contact practices.
