Kerr: Curry Sprained Foot Not Serious

Kerr: Curry Sprained Foot Not Serious

- Warriors on NBCS (@NBCSWarriors) April 10, 2019Stephen Curry (mild right foot sprain) will not return to tonight's game for precautionary reasons.

Kerr reiterated that Curry will "probably" sit out Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Grizzlies.

The likely end of the Davis era in New Orleans arrived unceremoniously. When he subbed out of the game with less than three minutes remaining in the period, he walked past the bench and straight down the tunnel leading to the locker room.

New Orleans will nearly surely trade Davis this summer, especially with the big man's contract expiring in 2020.

Damion Lee, who has a two-way contract with Golden State and has spent much of this season in the G-League, matched his career high with 20 points.

The 26-year-old, who played his collegiate basketball at the University of Kentucky, was originally selected by New Orleans with the first overall pick of the 2012 NBA Draft.


As the game wore on, the Mobile, Alabama, native drew mostly cheers every time he scored. That drew a mix of cheers and boos during a live performance; however; he played a season-high 35 minutes. Louisiana native Jacob Evans scored 11 points, while Alfonzo McKinnie and Jordan Bell each scored 10.

Davis, who averaged 25.9 points, 12 rebounds and 2.4 blocks in 56 games, made his trade demand with 32 games left in the season and wound up missing 17 of those games, sometimes for rest and at other times was listed as out with back spasms, including for the final seven games. The Pelicans were 9 of 33 from 3-point range.

A photo of Davis arriving at the arena wearing his Looney Toons T-shirt was briefly posted on one of the club's social media accounts along with a typical selection of player arrivals, but the Davis image was subsequently deleted.

Davis rocked a "That's All Folks!".

The New Orleans Hornets were coming off a dismal (21-45) lockout-shortened season under second-year head coach Monty Williams.
