UPDATE (11:15 a.m. Thursday) -- An MRI Thursday morning revealed that Curry sustained a left ankle bone bruise, and not a full sprain, the team confirmed.

Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is day-to-day with left ankle sprain, though he said he would "probably" play in Friday's game against the Spurs.

He left the Warriors' 106-93 win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday after scoring five points and collecting seven assists in 24 minutes. The team stayed overnight in Minneapolis, and Curry is expected to participate in the morning walkthrough before the team heads to San Antonio Thursday afternoon.

"I'm not really worried about it," said Curry, who indicated he also tweaked his right knee on a different play on Wednesday. "I was going to try to force it and get back out there, but you’ve got to be smart long-term. I don’t want to have this be a nagging thing down the road."

The Warriors are 2-0 through the first two legs of their four-game road trip, which makes stops in San Antonio Friday and and Memphis on Saturday.

In his fifth NBA season, Curry, is averaging 18.6 points, 9.2 assists and 29.6 minutes per game through five contests this year, leading the Warriors to a 4-1 record.

The 25-year-old sharpshooter has a history of ankle injuries, and multiple surgeries on his right ankle limited him to just 26 games in 2011-12.
