Stephen Curry Talks About Returning To Action

Stephen Curry plans to resume a regular playing schedule now that his fractured left hand is fully healed, tweets Anthony Slater of The Athletic. The Warriors guard met with reporters this afternoon ahead of his return to the court tonight after missing 58 games.

Curry hopes to play in all 20 of Golden State’s remaining games, saying he doesn’t want it to be a “now you see me, now you don’t” situation. He has had “talks” with the team about playing on back-to-back nights, but no decision has been reached, relays Nick Friedell of ESPN (Twitter link). The Warriors have four back-to-backs remaining.

He also spoke about adjusting to playing again without being concerned about his hand (video link). “Hopefully there aren’t any thoughts and I get to play my game the way I see it, react and make plays without hesitation,” Curry said. “If I need to make a left-handed pass or finish with my left or defend and get a deflection or take a hit with it.”

Curry also hasn’t given up hopes of playing for Team USA in the Olympics this summer (video link). “Right now the focus obviously is just trying to stay healthy these last 20 games,” he said, “get my rhythm back, get to the level of basketball I know I’m capable of playing.”

    Curry comes back and GS still wins the draft lottery. How many more days until the draft lottery so the knicks get unlucky again.

    • Strike Four

      Luckily for the Knicks, the top 10-15 picks in this draft are all entirely interchangeable, so pick number isn’t going to matter, you are probably going to get a useful piece no matter where you are in the top 15.

      Sure there’s no Zion or Ja, but there’s a very good chance there are zero true “flops” in entire top 10 and even beyond.

      • In my opinion that’s the case every year. Yes there is a couple blue-chip guys at the top and you can’t miss but very often the guy picked number 11 out plays the guy picked number 4. It’s all about scouting and the process of evaluating the talent in the NBA draft.

        Some teams got it some teams don’t. Look at the Charlotte Hornets and the Sacramento Kings the last 15 years. Total flops always picking in the top 10 or so. Other teams find outstanding players in the 20s and second round. So I think your point is the case every year.
