Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry left Monday's 125-115 win over the New Orleans Pelicans with a sprained right ankle.

Steph Curry was having a great game until the final moments of regulation on Monday night.

Curry has had a history of ankle issues, especially before he won his two MVP awards. "It's more on the - I won't just bounce back [Tuesday] morning waking up like, 'all right, I should be whatever, ' just because of swelling", Curry said after the game, as reported by ESPN. Postgame X-rays were negative and results of an MRI exam are expected back on Tuesday.

Penn State to play Washington in the Fiesta Bowl
It will be the Nittany Lions' 7th appearance in the Fiesta Bowl , but it's the first since they beat Texas 20 years ago. However, the matchup with Washington projects to be an interesting one.

The Warriors are first in the National Basketball Association in points per game, field-goal percentage and 3-point percentage.

Curry was injured while jumping into a passing lane late in the fourth quarter. "I shouldn't say that". He was seen wearing a boot and using crutches following the injury. "But all things considered, knowing I've been through this before on this ankle, knowing the surgical repairs from five, six years ago are fine, I should be able to bounce back". I got caught on E'Twaun's shoe as I went by him and couldn't catch myself. This looks like the loss, even without Curry playing.
