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.”

Both Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors expect him to return on Sunday for Game Four against the Houston Rockets.

"I like where I'm at right now," Curry said Saturday.

"As long as it continues to feel like it does right now and not have any setbacks after practice today, I should be good."

Curry played three on three on Friday and five on five Saturday, reporting no pain after Saturday's scrimmage.

He did not feel pain but did have discomfort. "It's like soreness that comes along with all that my ankle's been through, so it's kind of to be expected."

Steve Kerr expected a minutes limit for Curry ("probably") but it was not definite.

Curry has not played since early in the second half of Game 1.
