Stephen Curry scored 29 points in 25 minutes before sustaining a sprained MCL in his left knee as the Golden State Warriors beat the Atlanta Hawks 106-94 Friday in Oakland, Calif.

Curry, making a comeback from a sprained right ankle that forced him to miss the previous six games, got rolled up on by falling teammate JaVale McGee in a third-quarter collision near the Atlanta basket.

In obvious pain, Curry limped to the bench and subsequently to the locker room, and was quickly ruled out for the remainder of the game. He will undergo an MRI exam Saturday, the Warriors announced.

Nick Young scored 24 points for Golden State, which was without injured All-Stars Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson. Taurean Prince led the Hawks with 20 points.
