OAKLAND, Calif. -- Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry missed his second straight game Wednesday against the Memphis Grizzlies because of a sprained right ankle.

Curry was originally hurt in Golden State's final preseason game and aggravated the injury in the season opener against the Houston Rockets before rolling on it in last Friday's 109-91 win over the Los Angeles Clippers.

"A lot of the swelling went down and now it's just a matter of trying to continue the rehab and strengthening of it," coach Keith Smart said. "We're going to give him some more time off before rushing into it. We have to err on the side of caution right now just because we're talking about playing the long haul and getting ourselves ready for the long push later on."

Reggie Williams started in Curry's place.
