Warriors star Curry leaves Pelicans game with foot sprain
Stephen Curry left the Golden State Warriors' game against the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday with a foot sprain.
The Warriors star suffered the injury when he stumbled and fell in the first quarter. He went back to the locker room and the team later announced he would not return "for precautionary reasons."

Curry has struggled with lower leg injuries in the past. The Warriors, who have clinched first place in the Western Conference, will have to hope his latest issue doesn't hinder his playoff performance or availability.
Curry has missed 13 games this season. He suffered a groin strain in a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks in November, but has been relatively healthy for the better part of the season.
The two-time NBA MVP and three-time NBA champion is averaging 27.6 points, 5.4 rebounds and 5.3 assists in 2018-19. He scored five points in nine minutes before exiting the game against New Orleans.
Golden State is set to finish regular season play against the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday.
