Stephen Curry is out with a sprained right ankle again before Golden State’s season has even begun.
The team said in a statement Saturday night that Warriors coach Mark Jackson plans to hold the point guard out of the final two preseason games Monday at the Los Angeles Clippers and Tuesday against Phoenix. Curry injured his surgically repaired ankle in Golden State’s 101-97 win at Portland on Friday night.
The fourth-year point guard is eligible for an extension with the team until Oct. 30 – the night before the season opener at Phoenix – or he will become a free agent next summer. Warriors general manager Bob Myers has said the team plans to pick up Curry’s extension.
The Warriors also said the latest evaluation of Andrew Bogut showed the new center has ”not had any setbacks” on his surgically repaired left ankle, which he fractured on Jan. 25 while with Milwaukee. The 7-footer from Australia has remained hopeful to return for the season opener.
