Stephen Curry could return for Warriors in Game 2

Posted May 01, 2018

We'll have to wait and see what shakes out, but what we do know is that barring any kind of insane setback, Curry will be in the game on Tuesday. "If it were up to me, I would have played for about 20 minutes tonight", Curry said.

But it will be good for Curry to get back into game shape ahead of what's likely to be a matchup with the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference Finals.

The Warriors played quite well without Curry's services in Game 1 against the Pelicans Saturday, winning 123-101 and displaying an offensive flow that often eluded them toward the end of their first-round series with the San Antonio Spurs.

While Curry won't be on a minutes restriction, Kerr wouldn't reveal whether the two-time MVP will start or come off the bench Tuesday evening, keeping with his playoff policy of not revealing the lineup prior to games.

"In terms of what Steph are we getting, I'm pretty confident we're getting the real Steph Curry". There is nothing special about it.

Curry has participated fully in four consecutive practices.

Curry finished the season playing just 51 games, the second lowest total of his career, after dealing with a number of ankle injuries to go along with this Grade 2 MCL sprain.
