Curry still questionable for Warriors for Game 2 vs Rockets

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The Golden State Warriors are preparing to play without NBA MVP Stephen Curry for Game 2 of their playoff series against Houston as he nurses an ankle injury.

Even if they know he will beg and plead to play through any pain.

Coach Steve Kerr called Curry's status questionable Sunday, when the point guard didn't practice a day after hurting his right ankle late in the first half of a 104-78 win over the Rockets in the playoff opener.

Curry was undergoing treatment on the ankle, and Kerr said: "He's doing a little better than yesterday. ... He'll get some rest, get off his feet and we'll do the same thing tomorrow at shootaround and see how he's feeling."

If Curry can't play Monday night, Shaun Livingston will start in his place. The Warriors won at Houston on Dec. 31 without their superstar.

Curry landed awkwardly shortly before halftime Saturday.
