Curry was nursing an injured knee after the loss to the Nuggets on Sunday, and while practicing Wednesday before the matchup against the Heat, rolled his ankle. It caused him to be sidelined for arguably the biggest game on the Warriors' schedule this season.
Jackson seemed rather optimistic about the severity of the injury when talking to Tom Tolbert and Ray Ratto.
"I'm not a doctor, first of all, but I don't see it lingering on. I see it as a freak play that happened during shoot around."
As is well documented, Curry has had his share of ankle injuries in his career that has caused him to miss many a game, so it is no overreaction to anticipate the worst for Curry.
He will be a solid candidate for the Western Conference All-Star team in early February.
