After a two-game hiatus with a sprained ankle, it appears Warriors guard Stephen Curry will return to action Sunday against the Rockets for Game 4.
Curry sprained his right ankle in the series opener and missed the past two games.
It’s unlikely Curry will have any restrictions on his playing time.
Curry said he say out for Thursday’s game because coach Steve Kerr believed “it wasn’t worth the risk”.
Now, everyone feels like Curry is healthy enough to play. They have that kind of a thought if there is any ounce of instability or doubt to be on the more cautious side. If he’s deemed ready to go, he will play his regular minutes.
“It was their call”, Curry said Friday of the team’s decision. “If I would have got the green light I definitely would have played and felt confident there”.
Kerr said: “We’re hoping that everything goes smoothly and that he’s able to go and we don’t have to have a debate about it”.
Curry participated in a 5-on-5 scrimmage in practice Saturday and says that if he doesn’t have any setbacks he “should be good” for Sunday.
So would Curry be surprised to miss Game 4?
