Warriors star Steph Curry is expected to undergo testing to determine the extent of a right ankle injury that knocked him out of Thursday’s 125-122 loss to the Chicago Bulls.

The Golden State guard left the game with 3:51 left in the fourth quarter. On an attempted drive to the lane, Curry planted his right foot and rolled the ankle. When he went to the bench, he paused only briefly before heading to the locker room.

Coach Steve Kerr said Curry was with the training staff postgame and had his entire foot in an ice bucket. Golden State hosts the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday, when Curry’s status is expected to be updated.

“It sucks, but everybody deals with injuries,” forward Draymond Green said. “You’ve just got to do the best you can in dealing with it.”

Golden State (33-29) entered Friday in ninth place in the Western Conference.

Curry didn’t score in the fourth quarter on Thursday. He finished with 15 points and was replaced by Chris Paul. Golden State welcomed back forward Andrew Wiggins earlier in the week from an extended absence for personal reasons.

Curry, who turns 36 next week, is averaging 26.9 points, 4.9 assists and 4.4 rebounds in 59 starts this season. The 10-time All-Star and two-time MVP is shooting 40.7 percent from behind the arc and leads the NBA with 290 made 3-pointers.
