Friday Warriors’ head coach Steve Kerr said Curry is still is listed as questionable for Saturday’s Game 1 of their second round series against the New Orleans Pelicans.
Obviously he went through practice today, he’s scrimmaging now, so a big part of this is how he turns up tomorrow after a night’s rest. First time he’s scrimmaged in six weeks, five weeks whatever it is. It’s not as simple as ‘he feels good, throw him out there.’ It’s more about, give him a few days, see how he responds.
If Curry can return at 100 percent, or close to it, his impact elevates the Warriors from a team that many thinks may struggle to even reach the Conference Finals to a team that is the preeminent favorite to once again hoist the Larry O’Brien.
