Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry won't play in the team's Christmas Day game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, as he continues to recover from a sprained ankle. Editor's Picks
Who won the superstar-filled race for No. 1 in this week's player rankings as multiple MVP candidates made strong pushes?
As ailing point guard Isaiah Thomas nears his return, the Cavs plan for him to participate in his first full-court, five-on-five practice with the team this weekend and, sources say, get him some reps with Cleveland's G League affiliate.

Curry rolled his right ankle late in a road victory over the
New Orleans Pelicans on Dec. 4.
Golden State (24-6) has won five straight games without him and nine in a row overall.
Also for Golden State, forward
Draymond Green (right shoulder), guard Shaun Livingston (right knee) and center Zaza Pachulia (left shoulder) are questionable for Wednesday's game against Memphis.
