Curry has been sidelined for the last nine games with a left leg injury that he sustained while colliding knees with a Dallas Mavericks player at the beginning of February. Curry’s X-ray was initially negative, but his MRI results clearly showed something the Warriors didn’t like.
“Any time a guy gets an MRI, there’s a concern level,” head coach Steve Kerr said post-game at the time, via ESPN. “We’ll just have to wait and see the results.… This has happened many, many times over the years. So, fingers crossed he’s OK.

“If he’s out, then we move forward, and we do have some games to look at, some game film to look at. We’ll be ready, regardless.”
The Warriors have gone 5-4 since Curry has been out, which has maintained their playoff position as the fifth seed in the Western Conference. But Golden State would obviously love the nine-time All-Star back on the floor to help their push to the playoffs.
Curry, 34, is averaging 29.4 points per game this season over 38 games as well as 6.3 rebounds and 6.4 assists.
He has had to deal with injuries prior to this one, though, including a shoulder subluxation that forced him out of 11 straight games from Dec. 16 to Jan. 7.
