Curry may not play in Dallas

The 29-1 joyride of the Warriors may come to an abrupt halt in Texas, with Stephen Curry’s playing status questionable because of a left lower leg injury suffered during Monday night’s victory over Sacramento.

Curry is among several players, Draymond Green included, who missed a brief practice Tuesday due to health issues. Interim head coach Luke Walton said he would be inclined to rest Curry, also dealing with a right calf strain, if not for the reigning MVP’s persistence in trying to play through injuries.

The Warriors play tonight in Dallas, where Curry’s status will be a game-time decision, and on New Year’s Eve in Houston.

“There’s a chance that he won’t play in one or both games,” Walton told reporters. “He hasn’t said anything, except that he wants to play. Even in the game [Monday], I saw him limping and tried to take him out. He gave the wave-off and said he was fine. He wants to play, but he’s obviously not 100 percent right now.”

Curry, after a slow shooting start, compiled a triple-double against the Kings and his brother, Seth Curry.

Reserve guard Leandro Barbosa will miss the Dallas game with a sprained left shoulder. Green is dealing with an ankle issue, Festus Ezeli with a foot issue and Shaun Livingston with an undisclosed problem.
