OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry will not play against the Miami Heat on Wednesday night after spraining his twice surgically repaired right ankle.
Warriors coach Mark Jackson said Curry, who already had been nursing a sprained right knee, injured his ankle going for a loose ball during the team's morning practice. The team X-rays on Curry's ankle were negative.
Jackson said the injury doesn't appear serious and doesn't expect Curry to be sidelined long. Jarrett Jack will start in Curry's place.
Curry had started all 36 games this season to get Golden State (23-13) off to its best start since the 1991-92 season. He is averaging 20.5 points, 6.6 assists and 4.2 rebounds.
In April, the team said Curry had an operation on his ankle that ``consisted of cleaning out loose debris and scar tissue.''
