Curry (right ankle) out vs. Clips tonight

Durant poised to become 2nd youngest to 20,000 points

Curry scored 38 points in a December 31 (AEDT) win over the Grizzlies, his first game since December 5 after suffering right ankle sprain.

Curry's absence on Wednesday is largely precautionary, according to a team source. Fellow guard Klay Thompson (rest) also will sit out the contest. Kevin Durant (right calf strain), Draymond Green (right knee soreness) & Andre Iguodala (left knee & hip soreness) are available to play.

Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle provided further details, stating that the injury isn't too serious. But Curry's recurring ankle issues will have the Warriors operating with extreme caution.

The Warriors will soon hit the road for a 5-game road trip that will feature the Milwaukee Bucks, Toronto Raptors, Cleveland Cavaliers, Chicago Bulls and Houston Rockets. Over the remainder of the year, numberFire's models project him to record 26.7 points, 5.1 rebounds, 7.1 assists, 1.9 steals, and 3.4 3-pointers per game. Three of those teams are sure to make the Eastern Conference playoffs, and one of those teams is looking to retake the first seed in the West from the Warriors. If he doesn't reach 20,000 points Wednesday night, he'll have eight more games to do so, up until the Warriors' Jan. 27 home game against the Boston Celtics.
