Coming out of Game 3 of the NBA Finals, Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry appeared to have averted a catastrophic injury.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium, the two-time NBA MVP has averted a "serious" injury and will not require an MRI on his ankle.

Curry will be at the Warriors' practise on Thursday afternoon, according to Charania.

Curry's left leg was a source of worry after Game 3 on Wednesday. When both players were attempting to secure a loose ball, Boston Celtics forward Al Horford rolled on top of his leg.

The event resulted in a brief brawl on the court, which the referees were able to diffuse.

Curry told reporters after the Warriors' 116-100 loss, "Obviously, I'm in some discomfort, but I'll be fine." "We'll have to wait and see how it reacts. 

There isn't much else to say. I don't anticipate missing any games. Make the most of the next 48 hours to prepare."

Curry entered and exited his postgame press conference with a "slight limp," according to Tim Kawakami of The Athletic.

Curry's availability was questioned due to the short turnaround between Games 3 and 4. Coach Steve Kerr informed reporters that the squad would learn more during Thursday's off-day.

Curry has been the best player for Golden State in the NBA Finals so far. Through three games, he's averaging 31.3 points on 48.6% three-point shooting, 5.0 rebounds, and 3.7 assists.

If Curry is limited in any way, the Warriors will need at least one of their other players to step up if they want to keep the series alive.

In Game 3, Klay Thompson played his greatest game of the Finals (25 points in 39 minutes). Andrew Wiggins scored 18 points in the loss, but he only made one of six three-point attempts.

Jordan Poole, who has played an average of 24 minutes each game in the series, could see his minutes climb. When Curry was hampered by a foot ailment, he started each of Golden State's first five postseason games.

On Friday at 9 p.m. ET, the Warriors and Celtics will play Game 4 of the NBA Finals.
