While there’s nothing set in stone, Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors have made Mar. 1 the target date for the future Hall of Famer’s return to action, Marcus Thompson of The Athletic reports.
We wrote earlier this month that Curry was set to be re-evaluated on Feb. 1.
A return on the first of March would give Curry 22 games before the end of the 2019-20 campaign. That, Thompson writes, may impact the team’s lottery chances in May but it would also give the franchise a much-needed extended look at the Curry-D’Angelo Russell backcourt combination.
Curry played in just four games this season before the left hand injury that derailed his season. Golden State, hit simultaneously with injuries to Klay Thompson and other parts of their core, has been the worst team in the NBA ever since.
Thompson writes that Curry has looked good in post-practice sessions and is no longer wearing the brace.
