Stephen Curry: Expected to remain out through weekend

Stephen Curry: Expected to remain out through weekend

UPDATE: The Warriors are wisely having Curry sit out at least the next two games (at Portland and at Minnesota).

The Warriors (51-14) might enter Friday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers (39-26) without Stephen Curry (tweaked right ankle), David West (right arm cyst), Andre Iguodala (left wrist sprain), Jordan Bell (right ankle sprain) and Patrick McCaw (fractured left wrist).

The initial reports were that Curry's injury wasn't severe enough to rule him out of playing on the Warriors' upcoming two-game roadtrip entirely.

Curry missed 11 games in December with ankle troubles and tweaked the right ankle last Friday at Atlanta.

Dwyane Wade had 16 points and Josh Richardson had 13 for the Heat, who moved a half-game in front of Milwaukee and into seventh in the Eastern Conference's playoff race.

LaMarcus Aldridge had a team-high 30 points for the Spurs, who were opening a rugged three-game trip on which they also will face Oklahoma City and Houston. Cook finished with two points n 1-of-6 shooting in 22 minutes. Stephen Curry was the top scorer from either team with 34 points on 12-for-20 shooting. Minnesota are 4-7 without him, including 2-5 against opponents with winning records. At 88.1 percent, Durant would need to go a ridiculous 99-for-103 (96.1 percent) over the final 18 games to crack 90 percent. The Warriors rank first in offensive efficiency, while the Spurs are second in defensive efficiency.

Super Smash Bros is finally coming to the Nintendo Switch this year
The most interesting takeaway is that Marth, Wario, and Pit seem to be considered "core" Smash Bros . characters. In a press release, Ubisoft says that the game will be available on Nintendo's console on 24th April.

No. 25 Rhode Island, Davidson to play for A-10 title
Shavar Newkirk led Saint Joseph's' team in scoring with 18 points, while shooting 50% from the field (making 7 of 14 attempts). The Rhode Island Rams ran into their locker room Saturday, cutting through a hallway from the court at the Capital One Arena.

AC Milan v Arsenal
It is not only Arsenal's defenders who struggle when they leave the relatively safe confines of the Emirates Stadium. AC Milan are a team that is playing well and it seems like everything the manager is trying is working.

With the Rockets and Warriors not meeting again in the regular season, this race to the finish will simply boil down to which team is able to avoid any slip-ups down the stretch.

Brown did not return to the game after that but Tweeted this after. "We just did not play a smart, focused game tonight and it cost us", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson all are due at Target Center Sunday at 2:30 play a Wolves team that has lost three consecutive games for the first time this season.

"We have other guys who are pretty good", Kerr said. "He wanted to lobby to come back in the game, but we wouldn't let him".

Golden State is a 12-point favorite on the opening line, while the Over/Under (O/U) for the game opened at 222 points.

Golden State is 50-14 SU, but they have trouble covering the spread (27-34-3 ATS). Given his absurd volume (30.1 points and 11.2 3-point attempts per game), posting those hallowed percentages was the flawless testament to his uniqueness.
