The Steph Curry injury saga continues. Two weeks removed from his MCL sprain, which occurred in the first round of the playoffs, he still isn’t eligible to play. But according to Steve Kerr, the Golden State Warriors head coach, his star point guard did play 2-on-2 basketball with some Warrior assistant coaches. So with the two-week period ending before he can get further evaluated approaching, signs appear to point up for Curry.
“It was [Curry’s] first actual basketball, played 2-on-2 with the coaching staff,” Kerr said. “He’s doing fine. He’s not going to play tonight.”
Curry sprained his right MCL when he slipped on a damp spot of the floor in Houston just before halftime in a win over the Rockets in Game 4 in the first round. Though Curry said earlier in the week he was hopeful he could suit up for Game 3 of this series, the Warriors have exercised caution with him, easing him into on-court drills.
“It’s another good step, another good sign,” Kerr said. “So we’ll see how it goes tomorrow. We won’t have a 5-on-5 scrimmage, because the guys who play a lot tonight are going to need to rest, but more than likely we’ll put him into a 3-on-3 tomorrow and see how he does.”
With the Warriors’ play as of late, they haven’t missed a beat. But apparently, the Warriors want Curry fully healthy for the playoff stretch run.
