A sprained right ankle will sideline Stephen Curry Wednesday night against the Miami Heat. Uh oh.
Tim Roye, the voice of the Golden State Warriors, tweeted that Curry would miss the game. ESPN's Brian Windhorst reported that Curry re-injured his balky ankle Wednesday morning.
This is terrible news for Curry owners, who were hoping Curry's frequent sprains were a thing of the past. He played in just 26 games last season and missed eight games the years before.
On the season, Curry is averaging 20.5 points (43.7 FG% and 89.3 FT%), 4.2 rebounds, 6.6 assists, 1.6 steals and .2 blocks with 113 three-pointers made.

Video: Reaches 20,000 points at age 28
Last night LeBron James added another accomplishment to his long list of records. In the Heat’s win over the Warriors James became the youngest player in NBA history to score 20,000 points.
James did so at 28 years and 17 days. The previous record was held by Kobe Bryant who got to 20,000 at 29 years and 122 days. Of course James did this the fastest because he started his career...
Happy Birthday Dwyane Wade! DWade turns 31 today (January 17th) and his stylist, Calyann Barnett gave us a sneak peek at his “birthday suit” – what he’s wearing not his body, silly – on Instagram. DWade is known for his flamboyant fashion sense, you already know that it’s going to be left of center. The suit is A. Sauvage, shoes: Louboutin, signature frames, Goliath...
NEXT UP: NICK JR.
After winning the NBA championship last season, Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh has become somewhat of a hot commodity for television show cameos.Okay, at least for the Disney Channel..... Bosh made a cameo on their popular original series called "Jessie" starring Debby Ryan as a girl moving to New York City and becoming a nanny to a group of kids.The episode that Bosh starred...
When the Miami Heat went so far as to call center Dexter Pittman up from the D-League before Thursdays game to have an extra big body, you had to figure they really were concerned about Dwight Howard.
But if you just foul Howard, what is there to be worried about?
Ever since the Los Angeles Lakers picked up Howard last summer, there has been some concern about how the small and...
LeBron James added a few more accolades to his already illustrious career Wednesday night as his Miami Heat took the Golden State Warriors. He reached two career milestones, becoming the youngest player to ever reach 20,000 career points while also recording his 5,000th assist. But it wouldn’t be enough if that was all he did, right? So, he gave us two ridiculous dunks in the...
Chris Bosh's rebounding numbers didn't go up and neither did his All-Star voting numbers.
At least not enough for Bosh and the Miami Heat to make history.
Had the center been voted into the Feb. 17 game in Houston, the Heat would have become the first team since the 1990 Los Angeles Lakers to have three All-Star starters. It had been a foregone conclusion Miami forward...
LeBron James was the youngest player in NBA history to win rookie of the year, to record a triple-double, to score 1,000 points, to score 10,000 points, to win MVP honors at an All-Star Game ...
You get the idea.
His latest youngest-to-do-it milestone could come as early as Wednesday. He needs 18 points to become the 38th NBA player to score 20,000 in his career. If it happens...
TELL IT TO THE JUDGE
The San Antonio Spurs are being sued by a fan (who is also an attorney) for resting their top players in a November game against Miami.
Worst possible news hit Stephen Curry owners last night as he’s now listed as “out indefinitely” with a bum ankle. Yes, the same ankle that he hurt in the past. No, not that one, the other one, silly! Well, he hurt one of them anyway and it doesn’t look like they will push this at all so I’m thinking this could be a week or maybe longer. In the meantime your Huckleberry...
