Golden State rules Stephen Curry out for Sunday's game at Target Center

According to the Warriors, Curry in Thursday's game experienced issues - the team called it a "tweak" - for his right ankle for the fourth time this season.

However, the game really changed when coach Steve Kerr assigned Draymond Green to cover LaMarcus Aldridge - he had 28 points through the first 38 minutes of the game, but his only points after the defensive switch were two free throws with 3.1 seconds play.

The win, however, was bittersweet, as Stephen Curry may possibly miss a couple games after suffering his second ankle tweak in six days.

It was the fourth time Curry has dealt with an injury to that troublesome ankle this season. Curry then aggravated the sprain after slipping on the floor during morning shootaround on January 10, causing him to miss two more games.

The Warriors have been very cautious this season as they are trying to maintain their health for the playoffs.

After a thorough evaluation in the locker room, the Warriors decided not to let Curry return to action. The Warriors then committed a foul to allow Curry to be subbed out.

Durant totaled 37 points (14-26 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists and four blocks across 39 minutes in Thursday's 110-107 win over the Spurs.

For one night, though, the Warriors adjusted fine without Curry. The students will be from California's 17th congressional district, which represents areas in Silicon Valley.

"He said [this ankle turn] was a little bit like the Atlanta one", Kerr said.

"I'm impressed with the youth movement that's going on in our country right now", Kerr said. "I haven't heard of anything like this before but I don't think it will keep him out too long and hopefully it gets resolved".

He will remain behind as the Warriors prepare for road games against the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday and the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday.

The Warriors may also again be without two key reserves as Andre Iguodala (wrist) and David West (arm) could miss Friday's game.
