Curry (ankle), who will sit out Wednesday's game against the Clippers, will not need an MRI or X-Ray on his sprained right ankle, Anthony Slater of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

The two-time MVP has played in five consecutive games since returning from a previous injury to the same ankle that caused him to miss 11 games in December.

In addition to being without Curry, the Warriors will hold Klay Thompson out of Wednesday's game for rest, the team announced. Through five games he averaged 35.2 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game.

This is the same ankle that Curry sprained earlier in the season.

The Warriors rise coincided with the health of Curry's ankles, as he emerged as a singular talent who led Golden State to three straight Finals and a pair of National Basketball Association titles. There is no word yet on how many games he will miss due to this latest setback.
