Golden State Warriors Look to Extend Win Streak in Portland

Stephen Curry, the Golden State Warriors' two-time MVP, suffered a sprained right ankle Thursday night and has been ruled out of the team's Friday matchup against the Blazers at the Moda Center.

And Curry is not alone on the Warriors' injury report.

Tune into The Jason Smith Show w/ Mike Harmon weekdays from 8pm - 11pm EST on FOX Sports Radio! Curry left the arena Thursday night wearing regular shoes, a positive sign about his ability to get back on the court soon.

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).

After a tough loss to the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night, LaMarcus Aldridge is hopeful his San Antonio Spurs teammates aren't looking at the standings or anxious about their potential seed this postseason.

As a result of the nagging ankle injury, Curry will not travel with the Warriors as they head to Portland tonight or when they visit the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday afternoon. "He's one of the most competitive people I've ever been around and when he gets going like that defensively and he's all over the floor blocking shots, getting steals, yelling - That's when we're at our best".

In Thursday night's game, Curry was fouled by Spurs guard Dejounte Murray on a layup attempt two minutes into the game and came down awkwardly on his right foot.

Green threw Aldridge off his game down the stretch, holding the Spurs' superstar forward, who had a team-high 30 points, to just six points in the fourth quarter.

That was why the Warriors went after Kevin Durant that summer, to ensure they would have another all-time great player to lean on if Curry went down again.

Curry makes the Warriors a special team. He's missed 15 games so far this year and is likely set to miss at least a few more after this latest incident. The Warriors then determined midway through the second quarter that Curry would not return. "Not good enough. I think we just have to learn from our mistakes at some point".
