Steph Curry to undergo MRI on right ankle

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry looks downcourt during a timeout against Miami

Curry sprinted in an attempt to steal a pass with 57.9 seconds remaining, yet as extended his right foot rolled under the weight of his body as he attempted to stop. But things seem dramatically worse for the two-time MVP after rolling his ankle late in the comeback victory Monday night over New Orleans.

Behind a season-high-tying 34 points from Jrue Holiday, New Orleans clubbed the travel-bogged Warriors to the tune of a 69-49 lead at halftime before Golden State starting revving at full-throttle on both ends of the floor.

A valiant New Orleans effort against the defending National Basketball Association champions - one that was put forth without injured All-Star Anthony Davis - came up short down the stretch Monday, with Golden State taking over in the final minutes.

The Warriors opened the third quarter with a 15-0 run and outscored New Orleans, 39-22, in the period to go into the fourth trailing, 91-88.

First, Kevin Durant was ejected along with DeMarcus Cousins for jawing and jostling.

Curry, who has a history of ankle injuries, underwent X-rays that came back negative.
