Steph Curry leaves game against Pelicans with sprained right ankle; X-rays negative

The worst part of this is that it occurred with less than a minute remaining in a game that the Warriors led by seven. The Pelicans fouled Draymond Green.

Reports indicate that Curry is in a walking-boot and critches with "severe" swelling around his ankle.

That's a scary injury no matter who it is, so Curry nearly appeared relieved when X-rays came back negative and he was diagnosed with a right ankle sprain. That being said, The Vertical additionally reported that Curry is slated to undergo an MRI on his "very swollen" right ankle Tuesday.

This is the same ankle Curry had two surgeries on earlier in his career and shortened his 2011-12 season.
