Stephen Curry is the leading candidate for the 2015-2016 NBA MVP award and he buried one of the more memorable game-winning three-point shots in league history on Saturday night. However, fans of the Atlanta Hawks might not be able to watch Curry play basketball on Tuesday night, as the best player on the planet is now listed as questionable with an ankle injury.

Steph Curry is questionable for Tuesday vs Hawks.— Monte Poole (@MontePooleCSN) February 29, 2016
Curry injured the ankle during the course of the come-from-behind win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, and he was absent from the team's practice on Monday. This is, of course, huge news for the Hawks in that a Curry-less Warriors team would be much more susceptible to a loss in this spot, but even if he is unable to play, Golden State is undefeated at home (not a misprint) this season and it would be a tall task for Atlanta.
Stay tuned throughout the day on Tuesday for all the latest on Curry and the upcoming match-up in Oakland, but there is at least some intrigue as to whether the reigning MVP will be on the floor for the opening tip.
