Agent: Curry Out For All-Star Weekend





ORLANDO – Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry suffered a right foot injury against the Suns during last night’s game and will not be attending All-Star Weekend festivities here, per his agent Lance Young.

Young, via email, said the injury was to a tendon in Curry’s foot, and “nothing with his ankle.” But he said that it would prevent Curry making the trip here, where he was scheduled to defend his title in the Taco Bell Skills Challenge.

Rather than making the trip, Young said Curry would rest and rehab his injury this weekend. He’s already missed nine games this season with an ankle injury.

Curry missed a layup with 2:29 remaining in the first quarter and landed awkwardly. He went to the locker room and tried to come back just before halftime, but was unable to return to the game.

After the game, Curry was not happy about this latest setback, according to Brett Pollakoff of ProBasketballTalk.com:

Stephen Curry sat dejected in front of his locker Wednesday night, shirtless and with his right foot soaking in a tub of ice water. The unhappy look on his face wasn’t a product of the game’s result — a 106-104 victory for his Warriors over the Suns in Phoenix. It was due to the fact that he was bitten by the injury bug once again.

… “It’s just something different,” Curry said with a bit of disbelief, while trying to describe the injury afterward. “They haven’t figured out if it’s my tendon or my plantar fascia yet, but it’s on the other side so it’s not my ankle, which is good.”

… “I tried to make a cut, but it didn’t respond they way I thought it would,” Curry said. “Coach made the decision in the second half just to let it rest.”

Warriors head coach Mark Jackson said that he didn’t see the need to force the issue.

“I’m not an expert, but the right thing to do was to shut it down and make sure that he takes advantage of the rest that we have moving forward, and get the proper treatment or whatever the doctors say,” he said.

    Well, if Curry is not playing in the skills challenge then you could substitute D-Rose in his place

    I hope they put Steve Nash in the Skills Challenge to replace Curry. They didn’t bring him back the year after he beat Deron Williams.

  10. Brian says:

    Get Rubio in the skills competition RIGHT NOW!

    PLEASE BRING BACK DWYANE WADE,,, the two time champ… PLEASE!!!

  13. Johnny Blaze says:

    I think it would be a slap in the face to ask Monta Ellis to replace him in a skills challenge when he’s been snubbed from the all star game for the past 2 years, but I’d like to see Ricky RRrrrrrrubbbbiooooo or Jose Cal Dawwwwrrr RRRoon, hell or throw in Lin Sanity just for fun

  14. ME3ICP3 says:

    Give Chris Paul another chance, he was unlucky to fail last year, so a good idea to try with him again.. :D

  15. 9_9 says:

    RONDO is the best choice~~

  16. Monta Ellis should be his replacement.

  17. Magnum says:

    That ankle will never be cured. It is getting brittle every damn time.

    ricky

  19. Taylor says:

    Wow… people suggesting Rose (who is already in the game) and Rondo (who is also already in the game, replacing Joe Johnson and is also in the EAST) as replacements. Geniuses.

    Kyle Lowry should definitely replace Curry.

    • Jaykwan says:

      He’s in the Skills Challenge, brah, not the game.

      That said, I don’t know if they evenly divide the West/East representation in that event (there were five participants last season, so…).

  20. dominique says:

    derrick rose should be his replacement

  21. Danny says:

    Break some Ankles!

    Bad news for that.. I saw a young talented Curry like Jason Williams who gave Miami there championships together with Shaq, Wade and Payton..He could be an all star if he make more of his open shots and develop his defense..the skills are right there…

    • Rich says:

      ‘like Jason Williams’ ?! Curry is ten times better than Jason Williams !
      ‘Jason Willims gave Miami their championship ?!’ More like the refsgave Miami the championship !
