In the latest #Warriors News, the reigning NBA champions will have to play their next few games without #Stephen Curry. According to ESPN, the #Golden State Warriors revealed Tuesday that Curry suffered a left ankle sprain which is going to keep him out of action for at least two weeks.

Stephen Curry hurt his ankle in the Warriors' 125-115 victory [VIDEO] over the New Orleans Pelicans on December 4. With just over a minute left in the fourth quarter, Curry tried to intercept a pass by the Pelicans' Dante Cunningham to teammate E'Twaun Moore. Unfortunately, as Curry rushed to Moore, his left foot accidentally stepped on Moore's right foot.

Following the game, Curry regretted what he did and called it a "dumb play."

There was good Warriors news however as results of the X-Ray on Curry's ankle came back negative. Despite this, he will spend time on the sideline for him to recover and prevent aggravating the injury.

The absence of Curry will test the other superstars of Golden State, especially on the offensive end. Curry is currently the top scorer for the Warriors as he is averaging 26.3 points per outing.

Two more down

In other Warriors news, two more players might also be out when the Golden State Warriors continue their road trip and take on the Charlotte Hornets on December 6. ESPN mentioned in its report that aside from Stephen Curry, starting center Zaza Pachulia and backup guard Patrick McCaw are nursing injuries too.

McCaw has a nose contusion while the veteran Pachulia is dealing with a sore left shoulder. Pachulia's injury already forced him to sit out when Golden State faced the New Orleans Pelicans. It is likely that Nick Young is going to step up for the Warriors if McCaw is unavailable. Meanwhile, the likes of JaVale McGee, Kevon Looney, and Jordan Bell are expected to receive significant playing time in the potential absence of Pachulia.

Streaking Warriors

Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors have won four consecutive. They have a 19-6 record for the second spot in the Western Conference standings.

Now, Golden State needs to keep the streak alive without Curry. As mentioned, on December 6, the Warriors will visit the Charlotte Hornets at the Spectrum Center. The Hornets are at 9-13 but are coming off a win against the Orlando Magic. On December 8, the Warriors are set to end their six-game road trip versus the Detroit Pistons. The Pistons defeated the Warriors [VIDEO] at the Oracle Arena back in October.
