    Curry says will play Game 4 despite foot injury

    BOSTON (AFP) – Golden State star Stephen Curry was emphatic yesterday in confirming he’ll play Game 4 of the NBA Finals today (9am Brunei time), despite suffering a foot injury in the Warriors’ game three loss to the Boston Celtics.

    “I’m going to play,” Curry said at practice on Thursday. “That’s all I know right now.”

    The Warriors trail 2-1 in the best-of-seven championship series heading into game four at Boston’s TD Garden.

    Curry was among the Warriors starters who sat out the last few minutes with Boston on the way to a convincing 116-100 victory.

    He led the Warriors with 31 points before hurting his foot when he was buried in a scrum of players chasing a loose ball.

    “Because I went through what I went through in the regular season and coming back, I know exactly what it is and what I’ve got to deal with and the pain level and all that,” Curry said.

    “So once I got checked out last night, I knew I wouldn’t have to go get any extra tests just because we’ve been through this before.”

    Curry said his treatment so far had consisted of “about 10 and a half hours of sleep, a couple dunks in the ice bucket”.

    Curry said he knew right away that the injury was less severe than his earlier one.

    “As soon as you started to take a couple of steps, you kind of know whether you can run normal, cut normal or not. Back then, I couldn’t,” he said. “Yesterday, I could. That gave me a little bit of confidence knowing it wasn’t as bad.

    “We’ll see how it feels tomorrow. I know I’m going to play, but (we’ll) just see how it responds to that type of impact.”
