Steve Kerr Says Stephen Curry ‘Not Going to Play Anytime Soon’
The Golden State Warriors can look at this two different ways. The team is talented enough t weather a storm without Stephen Curry as they race to add another title to their trophy case, and when Steph does come back, he’ll be well rested, healthy, and that does not bode well for the rest of the league.
After failing to put away the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday and end the series, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told reporters after the game not to expect Stephen Curry to suit up “anytime soon.”
Curry has “looked good in practice,” according to Kerr, but no timetable exists for his return at this present time. The Warriors already know who there second round opponent will be, assuming they close the Spurs out in Game 5, after the Pelicans demolished the Blazers in four games.
Per the Mercury News:
Steph is not going to play anytime soon,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “But he’s come along well and has looked good in practice.”
The Warriors cleared Curry to participate in modified practice beginning on Saturday. Then, Curry completed all of the team’s non-contact drills as well as a shooting workout. Curry would need to advance to a full contact practice before returning, but he could reach that goal before the Warriors reevaluate him on [Sunday].
“I can’t put a timetable on it,” Kerr said. “But I think he’s coming along well. He’s really feeling healthy and getting better. He still has a few limitations he’s trying to work through with no pain. I think he’s on track.”
