Golden State Warriors superstar guard Stephen Curry chatted with the media following a Wednesday morning shootaround, and sticking to his word following a terrifying spill in Game 4, the MVP says he is physically and mentally prepared to take on the Houston Rockets in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals.
Curry admits to some bruising “all the way up and down” his body, but says he’s not dealing with any sort of concussion symptoms.
The Dubs hold a commanding 3-1 series lead, and have a chance to clinch an NBA Finals berth tonight for the right to take on LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers starting next week.
Per the Contra Costa Times:
Curry, injured in that scary fall two days ago in Game 4, said he hasn’t experienced any delayed concussion symptoms and the only thing bothering him is some bruising and soreness from the fall. […] “I’m feeling great, all things considered,” Curry said Wednesday morning after the team’s shootaround at its downtown practice facility. “I’m ready to go tonight.”
Curry said he got a good night’s sleep at the team’s Houston hotel on Monday and the flight home Tuesday went well. […] “I had a little bit of lingering effects yesterday, just soreness from the fall and all that,” Curry said. “But nothing really long-term I have to worry about.”
Curry practiced and will play with a sleeve on his right arm. It, along with much of the right side of his body, was bruised from the impact. […] “I shot pretty well with it right now, so hopefully that will continue tonight,” Curry said of wearing the sleeve. “I don’t wear them ever, so it takes a little bit of getting used to.”
