VIDEO: Draymond Green and Klay Thompson discuss the possibility of playing without Curry
OAKLAND — Stephen Curry will miss Game 2 against the Rockets on Monday night because of the sprained right ankle suffered two days earlier in the playoff opener, the Warriors announced about 70 minutes before tipoff.
Curry’s on-court workout, the final attempt at playing, sealed what had been an obvious possibility as he sat out practice Sunday and shootaround Monday. He did light drills, including some shooting, before cutting his routine short and walking up the tunnel toward the locker room with a dejected look.
Sitting Monday will give Curry four full days off and part of another before Game 3 in Houston on Thursday.
Shaun Livingston is scheduled to start at point guard in his place.
