Curry (knee) will not play Thursday against the Hornets, Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News reports.

A sprained right knee will keep Curry out of action Thursday as the Mavericks play on the second night of a back-to-back following Wednesday's loss to the Spurs. In that contest, Curry recorded 14 points and two rebounds in 28 minutes, marking the sixth time in seven games that he's scored in double-figures. In his absence Thursday, expect to see more of Justin Anderson and Devin Harris off the bench.
