Philadelphia 76ers guard Seth Curry sat out Friday’s practice but is listed as probable for Saturday’s Game 3 against the host Washington Wizards.

Curry injured his left ankle during Philadelphia’s 120-95 home win over the Wizards on Wednesday in Game 2 of the first-round Eastern Conference series. The 76ers hold a 2-0 series lead.

Forward Tobias Harris also injured his left ankle on Wednesday, but he participated in most of Friday’s practice. He isn’t listed on the team’s injury report.

“Tobias, I think he’ll be good,” Philadelphia coach Doc Rivers told reporters. “He went through most of the stuff today. Seth didn’t go through anything, but we think he’ll be good, but we just don’t know.”

Curry scored nine points in 23 points before exiting. Harris had 19 points and nine rebounds in 23 minutes.

Wizards star guard Russell Westbrook, who injured his right ankle in Game 2, is listed as questionable for Saturday. Westbrook had 10 points on 2-of-10 shooting and recorded 11 assists in 29 minutes.
