Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry isn't having any lingering problems with his right elbow after falling on it Wednesday night during Game 2 of the Western Conference finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Curry developed a tennis ball-sized bump after diving into the stands going after a loose ball during the Warriors' 118-91 win that tied the series at one victory each.

"Oh, it's fine. Swelling went down, so no worries," Curry said Friday at the Warriors' practice facility.

But he was wearing a shooting sleeve over the elbow for protection.

"Just compression to make sure I can get shots up and not have any swelling,"

Curry said. "It's sore, just because of the impact, but the spot it's at doesn't affect the range of motion, so I can shoot and dribble and do all I need to do. It's uncomfortable, but it's not necessarily painful."

Curry said the swelling made the injury look more severe than it is.

"These are, from what I hear, very common injuries. You land on something, hard surface, or get bumped -- elbow, hip, knee -- they tend to kind of swell up," he said. "They don't cause any problems mechanically or what not. I can still use my arm, do what I need to do. It just looks ugly and is a little uncomfortable. That's it."

The series resumes in Oklahoma City on Sunday, giving Curry more time to heal. He has also dealt with a sprained ankle and a sprained knee earlier in the playoffs.

"I'm doing all right, nothing to really worry about," Curry said. "It's nice to have three days in between to get your body right."
