Stephen Curry could miss next 2 games

Stephen Curry could miss both games of the Warriors’ trip to Texas because of a leg injury, interim coach Luke Walton said Tuesday, another potential health issue for the team off to the best start in league history.

The specifics of the problem with the lower left leg are not known. Walton said, according to the Bay Area News Group, that Curry seemed to be bothered by an injury similar to the calf strain the MVP sustained in his right leg last week.

The Warriors (29-1) have listed Curry as questionable for Wednesday at Dallas, before the trip concludes Thursday at Houston.

“There’s a chance that he won’t play in one or both,” Walton said. “That’s probably going to be a game-time decision or at least determined on how he’s feeling tomorrow.

“He hasn’t said anything except for he wants to play. Even (Monday) in the game when I saw him in the game limping, and I tried to take him out, he gave the wave-off and said that it was fine.”

Curry played 30 minutes, en route to a triple-double, Monday against the Kings in Oakland.

Also, Harrison Barnes, believed to be close to returning to the Golden State lineup after missing the last 13 games because of a sprained left ankle, did not make the trip. Andrew Bogut had previously been sidelined six games by a concussion.
