Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is experiencing no pain in his right ankle and is expected to play in the team’s Game 4 contest against the Houston Rockets on Sunday, coach Steve Kerr said Saturday at practice.
Curry missed Games 2 and 3 after spraining his ankle in the opener of this Western Conference first-round series. The Warriors and Rockets split the two games Curry was out, and Golden State leads the series 2-1.
The guard had said he wanted to play in Golden State’s 97-96 loss to Houston on Thursday, but Kerr had said “it wasn’t worth the risk.”
“If I would have got the green light, I definitely would have played and felt confident there,” Curry said Friday. “Hopefully that leads to even more confidence come Sunday.”
