The Stephen Curry Ankle Watch is a running feature that assesses the state of the Golden State Warriors star’s infamously sensitive ankle joints on a scale ranging from “Not Great” to “Touch and Go” to “They’re Probably Fine” to “100 Percent Ready to Rock.”

The Steph Curry Lower Extremity Watch has been in sleep mode as the Golden State Warriors looked to conquer the Portland Trail Blazers without their star point guard, but no longer! The Warriors disruptive, yet mindful doctors estimated Curry would be out of action for two weeks when he sprained his knee trying to polish off the Houston Rockets in round 1. The organization must have redirected the data-crunching hamsters running things inside their analytics machines to work the various physiotherapy machines to get Curry back on the court because after two weeks on the dot, the Warriors announced Monday that Curry will suit up for Game 4 against the Trail Blazers. Curry had been practicing already so his current status will be upgraded to Touch and Go, with a bullet.
