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.
Cotton confident of Pompeo confirmation
Paul has adamantly refused to assist Trump's nominee because of his objections to a few of Pompeo's global coverage positions. But the reasons she is giving for opposing the nomination of CIA Director Mike Pompeo to be secretary of state are foolish.
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.
