“A Long Way To Go” For Stephen Curry

Stephen Curry is traveling with the Warriors for the first time this season, but his timeline for a possible return hasn’t changed, writes Mark Medina of USA Today. Curry, who has missed 35 games with a fractured hand that required surgery, will be re-evaluated February 1. That means Golden State will play at least 10 more games without the two-time MVP.

“There is a long way to go for him to heal and be ready to play in a game,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “He just started really getting onto the court shooting and moving around. He has a ways to go, but it’s good to see him out there.”

Curry was averaging 20.3 PPG when he suffered the injury in the fourth game of the season. His jumper was still on target as he participated in a shooting drill yesterday with Draymond Green and assistant coach Bruce Fraser.

The Warriors’ plans also haven’t changed on fellow Splash Brother Klay Thompson, Medina adds. His condition will be evaluated during the All-Star Break (February 13-17) to see how much progress he has made in his recovery from the ACL injury in his left knee he suffered in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. Thompson has been taking part in shooting practice with his teammates when they have been in San Francisco.

Medina suggests the Warriors might set up conditioning and scrimmaging drills for both players after they have been checked by team doctors.

    Basically. Season is over we are tanking for chance to get the best pick possible

      Right, just because Curry will be re-evaluated in 3 weeks doesn’t mean he has any chance of playing then. Same goes for Klay.

        Someone said a long time ago, Curry has played too many minutes and should get held back this year, anyway.

        I couldn’t complain about that. I predicted them for a low playoff seed and a “dangerous” status there, but after such a slow start happened, why even bother with going that far.

    • If you watch the games you know they are tanking by the rotation of players. They are playing some of the player that would be on the bench in close games.

    Given all the deep playoff runs, better to just let Klay and Steph get healthy and let their bodies get some rest. Get a top draft pick and either see what they can do with it, package it, or whatever. They’ll have some options moving forward.
