Curry rolled his ankle after landing and taking a step on a contested layup less than three minutes into Thursday night's game against the Warriors.

So when the Warriors left for Portland early Friday morning, Curry stayed behind to rest and rehabilitate his injured ankle.

The Golden State Warriors have been shaky on the road this season and are on the end of a back to back after spending a lot of energy to come back and beat the Spurs.

Shaun Livingston played very well in an expanded role with 9 points, 7 assists, and 7 rebounds against the Spurs, and Omri Casspi provided some solid minutes off the bench.

Curry returned 12 games later, averaging 35.2 points over five games, then missed two more games when he slipped at a shoot-around and re-sprained his right ankle.
