Update: The Warriors have initially diagnosed Curry with a sprained right knee. He won’t return to action.
Just as concerning as that news might be Curry’s attempt at jogging back to the locker room for further evaluation.

Previously: Steph Curry’s troublesome right ankle is fine. After the Golden State Warriors superstar slipped on a wet spot late in the first half of his team’s game against the Houston Rockets, though, his right knee is now cause for major concern.
He stayed on the floor for several seconds after going down initially, then hurried back to the locker room with a limp as the half finally came to a close. And though Curry emerged from the Toyota Center gallows with the rest of his teammates, on-site reporters indicated he’s not quite 100 percent.
Regardless, Warriors officials told media in attendance that Curry was planning to play the second half. Just moments before play began, however, the reigning MVP went back to the locker room.
We’ll keep you updated on this developing situation as news becomes available. Golden State leads Houston by seven early in the third quarter.
