This is an encouraging sign for the Golden State organization and their fans, even if he ultimately doesn't come back tonight.
This likely means, at the very least, that Curry will be available for Game 5 back in Oakland. If the Warriors take a 3-1 series lead, they might elect to continue to rest him and let him prepare for the Western Conference Finals against either the Spurs or Thunder.
Steve Kerr said a decision on whether Curry will play won't be made until later this afternoon.
Curry last played in Game 4 of the Warriors' first round series against the Houston Rockets. He was given a two-week timeframe to return after a Grade 1 MCL sprain; today is the exact two-week mark.
A banged up ankle hampered Curry earlier in the first round as well. So far, he has only played a total of 38 minutes in the playoffs, averaging 15 points a game in two contests.
