Stephen Curry tweaked his left ankle in Game 1 of the Golden State Warriors’ second-round series against the Utah Jazz and was held out of practice on Wednesday.
However, according to Anthony Slater of the San Jose Mercury News, the team expects Curry to be fully available for Game 2 on Thursday night. Curry did miss a bit of time in Game 1 getting attended to by a trainer after the injury, which occurred on the following play.

After the game, though, Curry said it was no biggie, calling it “routine maintenance,” per Slater.
Curry played 30 minutes in Game 1, scoring 22 points, hauling in seven rebounds and dishing five assists in Golden State’s 106-94 win over Utah. It was a balanced effort by the Warriors, as all five starters hit double-digit point totals.
