The team later announced he wouldn't return.
Curry has dealt with ankle problems at various points throughout this season. The two-time NBA MVP missed 11 straight games from Dec. 6-29 with a sprained right ankle.
Curry has been playing at an MVP level this season when his body isn't causing him problems. He leads the Warriors with 26.8 points per game, and his 5.2 rebounds per game are the second-best mark of his career.
With Curry on the shelf, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr will likely mix in Shaun Livingston and Nick Young in the backcourt more along with the seldom-used Quinn Cook.
The Warriors own the second-best record in the Western Conference, but their hopes of repeating as NBA champions will depend heavily on Curry returning to full strength before the postseason begins.
