Steph Curry Eyeing Possible March 1 Return

Former two-time MVP Stephen Curry may play his fifth game of the 2019/20 season on March 1, when his Warriors take on the Wizards, according to Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic. In his piece, Thompson refers to March 1st as more of a broad “target date” than anything official.

Curry broke his left hand on October 30 against the Suns. The Warriors currently sit at a league-worst 10-34 record, at the bottom of the NBA by percentage points over the 1o-33 Hawks and the 11-32 Knicks. Thompson notes that a Curry return could impede the Warriors’ odds of nabbing a top-five pick, if the six-time All-Star point guard can help the team win.

The flip side of that equation is that Curry’s presence with some of the Warriors’ current players, including D’Angelo Russell and Willie Cauley-Stein, could indicate to GM Bob Myers whether it makes sense to retain their services into next season, when the team should be healthy and competitive once again.

    I get he want to play. But if the warriors aren’t a playoff team might as well sit out the season

      A broken hand is an injury that usually heals quite well and does not give any future problems. Even if the Warriors are not gonna make the POs, probably it’s wise to play Curry so that he shakes rust off and develops some chemistry with the new guys. It’s also a chance to see if Russell might be a good fit after all.

        That being said, the Warriors with their usual suspects back could go on an end of the season run. They could potentially steal the #8 seed.

        Would you want to play a Steph Curry led Warriors team in the 1st round if you were a #1 seed?

      that’s a really stupid thing to say. he has a salary to earn. he’s going to play like, 15-20 mins a game, chill out….

    Warriors probably want to play with all players healthy for some games this season to determine whehter to trade Russel to off-season.

      Watch Dlo’s numbers go crazy when Steph is there and getting double teamed all game.

        Except when both D’Angelo and Curry are playing together the defense will suffer way more than the offense benefits.
