MORGANTOWN, W. Va. – In West Virginia’s Big 12 home opener, guard Malik Curry landed awkwardly on his ankle, leaving the game and not returning against Kansas State. Curry injured the same ankle that he rolled on against UAB in December.

After the KSU game, Curry was seen in a walking boot and in crutches, but it sounds like the fifth-year senior is going to be okay.

“He didn’t practice yesterday,” WVU head coach Bob Huggins said. “But we think he’s going to be able to go [for Oklahoma State].”

Another sigh of relief was let out for the team. This was the second time that Curry had landed on his right ankle, leaving the game for good. Curry is averaging 7.1 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.7 assists through 14 games so far.

WV Sports Now will keep you updated on Curry’s status for the Oklahoma State game, when the Mountaineers  tip off with them on Tuesday night, at 9 p.m., inside the WVU Coliseum.
