Stephen Curry Expected To Return For Game 3 Or Game 4

May 3, 2016 9:17 PM

Bob Myers said he expects Stephen Curry to return from the MCL sprain in his right knee in the range of his original two-week timetable.

"I don't know that it'll be before," Myers told 95.7 The Game. "It might be after."

Curry missed Game 5 of the series against the Houston Rockets as well as Games 1 and 2 against the Portland Trail Blazers. 

"I know everybody wants to know is it going to be Saturday, is it going to be Monday? It's in that range, but it's hard to say. But those games (3 and 4) are so close together."

Curry has yet to return to basketball activities nine days after the sprain.

"I don't know if he's coming back (ahead of the two-week timetable)," Myers said. "Nobody knows. He doesn't know. He thinks he is, but that's good."

Curry has only done some standstill shooting.

"He's got to play a little bit of 3-on-3 or 5-on-5," Myers said. "He hasn't done any of that stuff yet, and I just think until you are actually trending towards playing basketball, it's hard to speculate as to what the date will be. If he's able to do that before Saturday, then you see where you're at.

"But you don't really know until you start pushing the envelope as far as basketball activities, and he's not doing that stuff yet. Can that stuff be done in the next few days? I suppose."

Stephen Curry Progresses To Standstill Shooting

May 1, 2016 2:51 PM

Stephen Curry took some standstill shots on Saturday as he continues to recover from a sprained right MCL.

“He’s progressing well,” Steve Kerr said of Curry. “… Before he’s going to be in a game, he needs to be on the floor in five-on-five situations, which means it’s pretty slim that he’ll be out there in Game 2.”

The Golden State Warriors have three days between Game 2 on Tuesday and Game 3 on Saturday.

Curry could blend back into practice on Thursday or Friday.

“We’ll monitor him and see how it goes,” Kerr said. “Hopefully, we’ll get him back at some point. … It’s nice to have that long break between Games 2-3.”
