OAKLAND While Warriors general manager Larry Riley gave notimetable for Stephen Currys return in fact, he said any kind of timeline islikely two or three days away he sounded as if the Warriors point guard maymiss a few more games.Curry had his right ankle examined in Charlotte on Monday,and those tests revealed what the Warriors already knew: Hes got a sprainedright ankle.I do think that were probably going to end up giving himmore time than we have in the past to produce a recovery, Riley said beforethe Heat-Warriors game on Tuesday at Oracle. Hes always come back very quickfrom these things. He did last year. And I think its important that we givehim plenty of time to do this whatever that means.Curry missed eight games last year, one two-game stretch andone six-game stretch.It seemed plausible that Curry could play against the Bobcatson Saturday in Charlotte. However, after hearing Riley speak, it seems liketheyll give it more time than that.The game against Charlotte begins a stretch of four games infive nights for the Warriors -- all on the road -- and it is conceivable theWarriors could shut him down through that trip.Whether it means in two or three days and we get a timeline and it says a week or 10 days more or whether it says one day more weregoing to give him time and when everybody involved.Curry sprained his right ankle during Wednesdays gameagainst the San Antonio Spurs, the seventh time in 15 months Curry has tweakedthe ankle.
