Golden State Warriors star point guard Stephen Curry will be sidelined at least two weeks with a sprained right ankle, the team announced Tuesday.
An MRI exam performed in Charlotte, N.C., displayed no structural damage and the Warriors said Curry will be re-evaluated in two weeks.
The Warriors are in Charlotte for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.
Curry injured the right ankle late in Monday's 125-115 win over the New Orleans Pelicans. Postgame X-rays were negative.
Curry left the arena on crutches after Monday's game. He also was mad at himself about the play in which he got injured as he got tangled up with New Orleans guard E'Twaun Moore.
"It was a dumb play because I tried to go for a steal," Curry said after Monday's contest. "And then, obviously, it was just a bang-bang (play). I got caught on E'Twaun's shoe as I went by him and couldn't catch myself.
"So obviously it hurt, but wanted to kind of get back here, get ice on it and get the rehab process started as soon as possible."
Curry scored 31 points against New Orleans and made five 3-pointers to raise his career total to 2,000. He is the eighth player in NBA history to reach that milestone.
The timing of the injury means Curry doesn't get to play in the club's lone visit to Charlotte -- the city Curry grew up in and located not far from where he was a college star at Davidson.
