Stephen Curry to play against Knicks despite dental discomfort

NEW YORK -- Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry had to make an afternoon trip to the dentist Saturday after experiencing discomfort, league sources told ESPN.

However, sources say the back-to-back MVP will be available to play Sunday afternoon at the New York Knicks.

Details of the visit are unknown at this time, as is the severity of the issue. He experienced discomfort following a noon practice and an afternoon Under Armour promotional appearance.

The Warriors, who have played 293 games since suffering a losing streak of three games or more, are looking to break a two-game skid. It's the longest stretch of games played without a three-game losing streak in NBA history.

Curry is 4-of-31 from 3-point range in the last three contests.

Golden State has won the last five meetings against New York.
