Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry will not play in Saturday night’s game against the Charlotte Hornets because he is “not feeling well,” the team announced just after the start of the game. Curry, who went through pregame warm-ups, was scratched just prior to tipoff and replaced in the starting lineup by Mychal Mulder.
Curry, who grew up in the Charlotte area and went to school at Davidson College just outside of the city, mentioned several times in recent days how much he was looking forward to playing at home after missing last season’s game after injuring his hand early in the year.
NBC Sports Bay Area cameras showed Curry walking off the floor just before the game with Warriors director of sports medicine and performance Rick Celebrini.
Curry is averaging 29.9 points, 6.2 assists and 5.4 rebounds per game this season.
