Stephen Curry (ankle) ruled out against Hornets

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry has been ruled out for Wednesday night's game against the Charlotte Hornets, according to sources,after spraining his ankle Monday.

X-rays taken after the game were negative. But Curry left New Orleans' Smoothie King Center in a walking boot and on crutches, and the angle to which his ankle was bent appeared severe.

The team officially listed him as doubtful to face the Hornets.Patrick McCaw (nose contusion) andZaza Pachulia (left shoulder soreness) are questionable, according to the Warriors.

Curry's injury occurred with just about a minute left in regulation as he and Pelicans guard E'Twaun Moore got tangled up.

"It was a dumb play because I tried to go for a steal," Curry said Monday after the Warriors' 125-115 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans. "And then obviously it was just a bang-bang [play]. I got caught on E'Twaun's shoe as I went by him and couldn't catch myself. So obviously it hurt, but wanted to kind of get back here, get ice on it and get the rehab process started as soon as possible."

Curry's injury dampened the fact that with five 3-pointers on Monday night, he became just the eighth player in NBA history to make 2,000 3-pointers.
