Though the absence of Curry is significant, the good news is that it seems he will return in time for the playoffs, which as one can imagine is a very for the Warriors

Steph Curry likely to return in time for playoffs

The news coming from Golden State Warriors on Friday is that star guard Stephen Curry will could well be ready to play in time for the playoffs. Curry will of course have to go through an evaluation on his left foot in one week, but it is understood that both the player and the team are confident that he can recover in time to be included in the lineup for the Warriors' Western Conference playoff run. Should that be the case, expect the Warriors to be revitalized as they attempt to bring yet another title home.

What has the situation been with Steph Curry?

To date, Curry has missed seven games and according to reports is set to miss the final five games of the regular season, which will conclude on April 10th when the Warriors face the New Orleans Pelicans. As things stand the Warriors have declined to offer any further details, saying that they will give an update on April 11th. "We were hoping that maybe he could play one or two games at the end of the regular season, but that was kind of a long shot," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said on Friday. "This is how it's turned out. ...I'm not too worried about him."

Adding further positivity to the scenario is the fact that after spending the last two weeks working with weights and in the pool, it is understood that Curry is now out of his walking boot and is moving on his own steam. Indeed, the Warriors' talisman has now entered the next stages of his rehab and will be transitioning to individual on-court activities next week.

What do the Warriors do now?

At 48-29, Golden State is currently fourth in the Western Conference, with a two-game cushion over the Utah Jazz. Where Curry specifically is concerned, he was averaging 25.5 points, 6.3 assists and 5.2 rebounds per game, before suffering the injury against the Boston Celtics back on March 16th. That is to say he has been - as per usual - an integral part of the Warriors' offensive strategy. They have of course seen the return of both Draymond Green and Klay Thompson in recent times, but Curry's injury has occurred at a time when the Warriors are trying to find rhythm with their star players having played very little time together due to injury. If the Warriors are to make good on Green's declaration of "Whether we're the No. 2 seed or No. 3 seed, we're going to win a championship," they will need all hands on deck and in good health to boot.
