Curry was considered doubtful for Wednesday's game in Charlotte. He will miss at least two weeks before being reevaluated, although it is not clear how much time he can ignore. Golden State has eight games before receiving Cleveland on Christmas Day.
This is not the first time that Curry's right ankle presents a problem for the Golden State star. Curry underwent surgery on his ankle in May 2011 to repair broken ligaments after suffering multiple sprains, then underwent more surgery in April 2012 after a season in which he played only 26 games.

"I had not done that in a long time," Curry said after the game , on ESPN. "I touched my ankle, see how it feels tomorrow and go from there, obviously a bad situation, but I'll be back."
"It was a silly move because I tried to go for a steal," Curry continued. "And then, obviously, it was just a bang-bang [play]." I got caught by Ewa Tawaun's shoe when I passed by and could not catch myself. So, obviously, it hurt, but I wanted to come back here, get day and begin the rehabilitation process as soon as possible. "
Curry planned to play golf with his father, Dell Curry, on Tuesday in his hometown Charlotte before the Warriors game against the Hornets. Probably that is not possible anymore.
"I always long for that trip," Curry said. "And play in that arena and play in front of people who saw me grow up, I lost a game before, I think I missed it in my third year in the league, so I know how to deal with emotions, so to speak. fanatics present themselves and support others if I'm not there and we have a good game. "
Chris Haynes of ESPN reported later on Tuesday that Curry will not play Wednesday night against the Hornets.
