Head coach Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs shouts to his team during their game against the Golden State Warriors in Game 2 of Round 1 of the 2018 NBA Playoffs at ORACLE Arena on Tuesday in Oakland, California.

It was previously noted that Curry was targeting a return in the conference semifinals.

Curry has missed 13 straight games since suffering from a Grade 2 left MCL sprain on March 23. The Warriors will play the victor of the series between the New Orleans Pelicans and the Portland Trailblazers, and with both series now sitting at 3-0, the second round could start as early as April 28th.

Mass Planned Evacuation Takes Place in Central Berlin Over WWII Bomb
The 500-kg British bomb was discovered during building work this week, more than seven decades after the end of World War II. About 65,000 residents in Frankfurt were evacuated in September as experts successfully defused an unexploded bomb.

Along with beginning modified team practices, Curry's on-court rehabilitation will continue to increase and he will be re-evaluated in a week.

As talented as the other three All-Stars are, the Warriors are a much more formidable team with Curry on the floor.

The Warriors' poor regular season run coincided with the absence of Stephen Curry, who is out with a knee injury. As good as the Warriors are, they have blown a two-game series lead before. If the Trail Blazers fight off elimination, New Orleans and Portland could play Games 5 (Tuesday), 6 (Thursday) and 7 (Saturday). He has spent the past week completing various shooting, running and lateral movement drills.
