Warriors’ hopeful of Curry’s return for road trip

0 34

Stephen Curry is expected to be available for the Warriors’ game against San Antonio in the NBA after the star suffered a shoulder injury.

Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is scheduled to be re-evaluated for his left shoulder subluxation on Saturday, as the team is hopeful he will be available for next Friday game as the team will make a six-game road trip in San Antonio.

“He’s working out on the court, and the two-week mark to re-evaluate him this weekend,” Warriors general manager Bob Myers said on Bay Area radio station 95.7.

“There have been no setbacks, so (Friday) would be a hope. That’s what we would be shooting for, something in that range when he could be back. He’s been, not contact, but out there doing all this stuff. He looks like the same guy. He’s got a sleeve on his shoulder and arm.”

Curry suffered a shoulder injury on Dec. 14 against the Indiana Pacers when he bumped into Jalen Smith in the third quarter. Curry immediately grabbed his left shoulder and continued to hold it as he ran down the court. The Warriors subsequently called a timeout, and Curry was looked at by two trainers on the bench before heading back to the locker room.

The Warriors have gone 6-5 since the absence of Curry, including the Pacers game in which he was injured and on Wednesday’s night 122-119 loss to the Pistons. And they haven’t just been without him.

In addition to Curry, Andrew Wiggins (right adductor strain, illness), Jonathan Kuminga (right foot sprain), JaMychal Green (right leg infection) and James Wiseman (left ankle sprain) have been sidelined.

Wiggins will be re-evaluated later this week while Kuminga, Green and Wiseman will be re-evaluated in one week, the team announced.

Despite all of the absences, the Warriors had managed to find a rhythm, resulting in them stringing together their first five-game win streak of the season through the first portion of their homestand before the last-second Pistons loss.

Curry’s targeted return would allow him to rejoin the team as they embark on their next road trip, where they have the worst record in the NBA.
