HOUSTON (AP) - Stephen Curry is expected to play Sunday in Game 4 of Golden State's first-round series against Houston.

Curry sprained his right ankle in the series opener and missed the last two games. Golden State won the first one without him, but Houston took Game 3 on Thursday night to cut the series deficit to 2-1.

The Warriors officially listed him as probable, but coach Steve Kerr says he expects him to play.

Curry participated in a 5-on-5 scrimmage in practice Saturday and says that if he doesn't have any setbacks he "should be good" for Sunday.

He says the biggest thing was feeling like his ankle was stable when he tried to pivot or make moves to avoid defenders. He says: "I can deal with a little discomfort that comes along with it as long as it feels stable."
