LAS VEGAS -- Stephen Curry said his right ankle is "perfectly fine" and there was no re-injuring of it during a pickup game at Impact Basketball on Thursday night.Four minutes into Thursday's game featuring several Warriors players, guard Curry left the floor, took his right shoe off and began getting some treatment on his right ankle. He watched the second quarter while icing the ankle. All precaution, according to Curry.
"I've had a schedule for my recovery of coming back and I've been doing some high-impact workouts and I just wanted to run up and down the court a little bit," Curry said. "I have no limitations right now and am just pacing myself to get back to 100 percent."Curry, one of nine Warriors players who competed in the game, had surgery on that foot in late May after it gave him trouble throughout the course of the 2010-11 season. The surgery was performed in Charlotte, N.C., by Dr. Bob Anderson, and the procedure was intended to strengthen the ankle.He said the ankle isn't quite 100 percent yet, but that he's been cleared with no limitations. Curry said if it were the regular season, he'd play right now.

Curry missed eight games last season because of the ankle. Curry had been rehabbing most of the summer, but was recently cleared to begin playing in five-on-five games. He watched the second quarter from the bench while getting the ankle iced.Curry, Dorell Wright, David Lee, Klay Thompson, Charles Jenkins, Jeremy Tyler, Ekpe Udoh and Jeremy Lin were on the white team, and for some reason Lou Amundson was the lone Warriors on the blue squad.
