During the first quarter of Golden State's game against San Antonio, Curry got out on the break and behind a pair of Spurs defenders for a potential layup. The Warriors then committed a foul to allow Curry to be subbed out.

Golden State covered as a 10-point favorite and the game finished with a total of 227 points, which was 8.5 points above the projected point total of 218.5 points.

According to ESPN's Chris Haynes, Curry is "day-to-day" and will travel with the team during the two-game road trip to the Portland Trail Blazers (Friday) and Minnesota Timberwolves (Sunday).
