Late in the fourth quarter of the Golden State Warriors’, San Antonio Spurs’ game three of the western conference semi-finals series, in which the Warriors lost, Stephen Curry suffered a sprained left ankle. He was hobbling, limping and clearly in pain however it wasn’t too severe to force him out the game. Needless to say, Curry said he remains optimistic he’ll be ready to go for game four even if it mean’s his time is limited.

If you could gauge it, you think you’ll be abale to play?
I think so. You never really know how it’s going to feel the next day. You just keep with the treatment. Same ol’ story. I have the same answers. I hope it feels good enough to go tomorrow. But until I wake up tomorrow and see, you just hope for the best right now.
Will you be limited or play the same way?
If I can give the team anything, I will play. I feel like if I can get to a point where I’m not hobbling and I can cut how I want to. It doesn’t gave to be 100 percent, as long as I can be confident that it won’t do any further damage. I have a feeling I’ll be at that point tomorrow, no problem.
12:30 start a concern for you?
A little bit. It’s just a shorter turnaround, literally 36 hours from last night. That’s the main concern compared to having 3 days like I did last time. Just gotta expedite the treatment and stay as consistent as possible.
