Stephen Curry fell awkwardly firing up an end-of-quarter 3 on Wednesday vs. Houston and did not return.
Working to find an opening on the right wing as the third period closed, Curry stepped back after a series of crossovers put him just beyond the reach of two defenders.
The shot caromed off to the left as Curry stumbled backwards upon landing, scrambling for footing as he headed into the seating area. Curry ultimately landed right on the edge of a metal riser, immediately wincing and remaining on the ground as trainers rushed over.

Hustled off to the locker room, Curry's night was soon confirmed complete, with 18 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assists to that point.
After the game, which the Warriors won 108-94, coach Steve Kerr told reporters that Curry says "he's going to be fine" and that he has no idea if the guard will play their next game in Memphis.
