The Warriors entered without Andre Iguodala (left wrist sprain), Jordan Bell (right ankle sprain) and David West (right arm cyst), only to receive even more alarming news when Stephen Curry tweaked his right ankle less than three minutes into the contest.
According to ESPN's Chris Haynes, Curry is "day-to-day" and will travel with the team during the two-game road trip to the Portland Trail Blazers (Friday) and Minnesota Timberwolves (Sunday).
The two-time MVP hobbled over to the Warriors bench, but despite coming back onto the court to shoot his two free-throws after being fouled on the play, he immediately left the game and didn't return.
Pelicans' Anthony Davis (ankle) remains a true game-time decision on Friday
Eight of the Pelicans' next nine games unfold in New Orleans, including matchups against six opponents with winning records. The pair combined for 19 points on 10 fourth-quarter shots, making four 3-pointers and keeping Sacramento at arm's length.
But for everything that has changed, one thing hasn't: Golden State - and, by extension, this entire league - hinges on the health of Stephen Curry's ankles. He had recently tweaked his ankle in the game against the Hawks.
Curry, who is averaging 26.3 points, 6.2 assists, and 5.1 rebounds this season, has a history with ankle injuries, rolling his right ankle just this week on Friday against Atlanta.
Dub Nation is certainly in prayer mood right now, and if Curry is done for the rest of the season, it may put their dreams of repeating as champions in serious doubt.

Back in December when he was out, the Warriors tightened up their defense, Kevin Durant took over on offense, and Golden State won seven in a row.
After the injury, Curry was taken to the locker room for further evaluation. Quinn Cook could get some starts while Curry is out. Jason says that the Warriors will be fine without Curry because they aren't going to miss anything except finishing second to the Rockets in the Western Conference. The Warriors are only the Warriors when Curry is healthy and operating at peak efficiency.
San Antonio ranks 11th in points off turnovers allowed per game (15.5) while Golden State ranks 28th (18.9). "He's one of the most competitive people I've ever been around and when he gets going like that defensively and he's all over the floor blocking shots, getting steals, yelling - That's when we're at our best". He re-injured the ankle the following year, which required a second surgery in a 13-month span.
