No. 1: Curry questionable tonight vs. Hawks — The Golden State Warriors remain a game ahead of the pace the Chicago Bulls set in 1995-96 for a 72-win season. The Warriors have, of course, been fueled this season by reigning Kia MVP Stephen Curry, who added to his season-long lore with a masterful performance against the Oklahoma City Thunder before a national-TV audience on Saturday. Curry, however, sustained a left ankle injury in that game and is listed as questionable for tonight’s showdown with the visiting Atlanta Hawks (10:30 ET, NBA TV). Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle has more:

Two days after Stephen Curry scorched the Thunder with a 46-point outburst – punctuated by his memorable, game-winning, 32-foot shot in the waning seconds of overtime – Curry rested his sore left ankle as the Warriors returned to work Monday.

Curry sat out practice, and also skipped his customary post-practice shooting session, in the wake of the left ankle injury he sustained Saturday night in Oklahoma City. The Warriors are listing Curry as questionable for Tuesday night’s home game against Atlanta.

“I’m feeling pretty good,” he said. “Considering how it happened and how it felt after the game, I’ve made some progress. It’s still a little sore, but hopefully I’ll be ready for tomorrow.”

Curry rolled the ankle early in the third quarter, as Russell Westbrook challenged him on a fast-break layup. Curry hobbled to the locker room, where he had the ankle re-taped; he returned to the game later in the third quarter.

He acknowledged the ankle was “very sore” Sunday.
