Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry sprained his right ankle and had to be helped off the court during the Sacramento Kings' 95-91 preseason victory Tuesday night.
Curry was injured while defending rookie Jimmer Fredette just before halftime. Curry didn't play in the second half and finished with seven points and five assists in 15 minutes.
Marcus Thornton scored 21 points for Sacramento, including a go-ahead 3-pointer in the closing minutes.

JJ Hickson had 19 points and nine rebounds for the Kings, who scored the final six points. Tyreke Evans scored 15, but committed seven of Sacramento's 27 turnovers. Fredette, who had 21 points in his NBA debut against the Warriors, finished with 12.
