OAKLAND, Calif., Sporting Alert – Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry remains questionable for Game 2 of Western Conference first round series against the Houston Rockets at Oracle Arena on Monday night.
Curry tweaked his right ankle with just over two-minutes remaining in the second quarter and was forced to receive treatment during the contest on Saturday.
He also got treatment during Golden State’s practice session Sunday.
“As far as [Game 2 on] Monday, I’d say Steph is questionable,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said at the weekend.
“We will see how he responds… and go from there.”
The reigning MVP missed the morning shootaround session on Monday to continue working with the trainer and the club revealed that the free-scoring point guard will be a late decision for Game 2.
Curry scored 24 points, seven rebounds and three steals in 20 minutes in the series opener on Saturday.
Shaun Livingston will be the likely replacement for Curry if he’s unable to go Monday night.
Kerr is confident in the Warriors role players.
“We’ve got a lot of guys who could play [if curry is unable to play],” the second year head coach told reporters.
