Stephen Curry out Wednesday night vs. Miami with ankle injury

The ankle, again. 

Stephen Curry will miss Wednesday night's game vs. Miami after re-aggravating his repetitive ankle injury in practice. From the Contra Costa Times: 

Curry had gone the first 36 games without any ankle issues. After offseason surgery, his second in two years, his troublesome right ankle had been cured. But Wednesday during drills, Curry landed on the foot of Festus Ezeli. He is in wait and see mode, receiving treatment and monitoring how his ankle responds. But I wouldn’t bank on him playing, especially considering coach Mark Jackson history for being cautious.

ESPN Radio reports X-Rays are negative but that Curry is out Wednesday night

It's far better to play it safe with Curry. He's just been healthy, has only recently been talking about how good he feels. With all the problems Curry has had with the ankle, they just can't risk it. It's a shame because Curry's honestly been playing at an All-Star level.

Luckily, the Warriors have Jarret Jack to put in the starting lineup, who has been Sixth-Man-of-the-Year worthy this season. Jack will start vs. the Miami Heat Wednesday.
