MADRID -- Stephen Curry practiced with the U.S. basketball team, confident he'll be available for exhibition matches after injuring his left ankle.
The Golden State guard took part in the non-contact training Friday at the Magic Box center in Madrid.
He says he's "80 percent" a day before the U.S. plays Lithuania in a world championship warmup match.
The U.S. plays defending world champion Spain on Sunday.
Curry is trying to make the Aug. 28-Sept. 12 tournament in Turkey, with one player still to be cut from the 13-man roster.
Curry says Warriors general manager Larry Riley contacted him to ensure he didn't force himself back prematurely. Curry hurt the ankle on Wednesday but says he'll likely play since it's "a one-time opportunity."
