Warriors guard Stephen Curry has missed 10 games while dealing with a groin injury, but Steve Kerr says he’ll return soon.
Curry suffered the injury in a 134-111 loss to the Bucks, and Dub Nation has experienced some serious drama in his absence. Curry is the glue holding the team together and getting him back should help Golden State get on track.
According to ESPN, Curry will not play in their highly anticipated matchup with the Raptors on Thursday. However, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr says he will play again against the Pistons on Saturday.
Even though Curry has been out of commission for a lengthy stretch, he ranks fifth in the NBA in 3-pointers made with 62. He’s shooting 49.2 percent from deep so far, which is a career high.
The Warriors are 15-7 and only behind the Clippers in the Western Conference standings. Many see the 18-4 Raptors as the biggest threat to the defending champs, so they hope to see both teams at full strength.
Draymond Green is still dealing with a toe injury, but Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson will provide Golden State fans with plenty of excitement this weekend.
