Warriors guard Stephen Curry has been diagnosed with a mild concussion after hitting his head on the court during the fourth quarter of Tuesday's 98-87 victory at Utah. The only symptom at this time is a headache, which has dissipated since the end of the game.

Curry will not play in Wednesday night’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies and his status moving forward is day-to-day.
The point guard left the game with 8:50 remaining after being knocked to the floor, after which Jazz forward Marvin Williams landed atop his upper body and head area. The initial report from the Warriors is that Curry sustained only a headache.
"Rung my bell pretty hard," Curry said. "I went to reach for the ball and the next thing I know, I hit the ground pretty hard and then I think Marvin landed on me."
Curry had a team-high 22 points to go along with eight assists, six rebounds and three steals in 33 minutes before exiting. In 10 games this season, he is averaging 19.9 points, 8.7 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 1.70 steals in 32.7 minutes per contest.
