Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry will not be back for a while.
The Warriors announced on Tuesday that Curry will be out for the next week before he is re-evaluated on March 20.
Curry reinjured his ankle against the San Antonio Spurs on March 8 when he stepped on Dejounte Murray’s ankle after attempting a fast-break lay-up.
He stayed in the game to take free throws but then left and has not returned since.

In his absence, the Warriors have lost back-to-back games to the Portland Trail Blazers and Minnesota Timberwolves.
However, Curry’s trainer does not think the injury is a big deal.
“[I’m] not very concerned in terms of it being a major injury or something that is going to prevent him from playing in the playoffs or anything like that,” Bandon Payne told 95.7 The Game Friday, via the Mercury News .
“It’s all small little tweaks. It’s nothing major.”
