All right, that's five straight losses and 12 of the past 14 for the Warriors. But just like we warned not to get too high after starting 6-2, don't get too low now that they're 8-14.Plus, it might get a little worse.We'll probably know more about Stephen Curry's sprained right ankle on Thursday. Curry tweaked the ankle with 5:20 left in the second quarter of the Warriors' loss at San Antonio on Wednesday. RELATED: Warriors drop 25th straight game in San Antonio
X-rays were negative and there was no fracture, according to the Warriors. Curry left the arena in a walking boot. He's listed as day-to-day, with the Warriors' next game coming Friday against the Miami Heat at Oracle.

Point is, Curry's hobbled, and Miami and Utah await.--Regardless of whether Curry plays Friday or not, the Warriors will have a little more help in the backcourt. Was able to confirm that the Warriors are going to sign Acie Law on Thursday - meaning they'll likely waive Jeff Adrien.The Warriors' roster has 15 - the maximum.Law, whose had a previous stint with the Warriors, has played for five different NBA teams. Law, 25, is a lefty who can play both backcourt positions, and the Warriors have been desperately searching for someone to provide consistent backcourt minutes off the bench to support Ellis and Curry.--If Curry isn't 100 percent, you figure Reggie Williams stands to benefit. And at least he'll be coming off a game on which to build upon. Williams had a career-high 31 points and went 8-for-10 from 3-point range against the Spurs on Wednesday.Williams has been so-so at best this season, but it looks like he'll get an opportunity to turn things around in the next few games.What's your take? Email Matt and let him know. He may use it in his Mailbag.
