College basketball: X-rays on ankle negative; Curry day-to-day

By Mike Cranston
Associated PressDAVIDSON ó Davidson star guard Stephen Curry’s injured left ankle is not broken, and the nation’s leading scorer will be listed as day-to-day.
Curry met with doctors Sunday, a scheduled off day from practice, and underwent X-rays that were negative. Coach Bob McKillop said Curry will sit out Monday’s practice, but no determination has been made for Wednesday’s game against The Citadel.
The Wildcats (22-4, 15-1 SoCon) play host to No. 15 Butler on Saturday in a Bracketbusters game.
“Stephen is very resilient, and he has already gotten terrific care from our medical team,” McKillop said. “We will monitor his progress on a day-to-day basis.”
Curry was injured when he stepped on the foot of a Furman player during a drive to the basket in the second half of Saturday’s 75-60 victory over the Paladins.
The 6-foot-3 junior immediately hopped on one foot past the baseline and eventually fell to the floor. He was on his back with his hands covering his face for several minutes before spending the rest of the game on the bench receiving treatment, including ice. He was seen leaving the arena on crutches.
Curry’s 753 points this season account for 36 percent of Davidson’s offense.
