Curry, up or down?

So it's five minutes ago and I'm standing behind the Belk Arena baseline, watching Davidson's players warm up. Stephen Curry, recovering from that left ankle injury, was the first player on the court, wearing a brace on the ankle and moving well through his shots.

Finally, Curry heads over to the bench and sprawls in a chair, obviously satisfied one way or another. He sees me, and I give him a questioning and pantomimed "thumbs up or thumbs down?"

Curry grins broadly, then stretches his arms out, palms up in a "who knows?" gesture.

This one is definitely a game-time decision, but I'm betting on him playing.--Stan Olson
