The Golden State Warriors have won six of their seven games here in the 2018 postseason, and the last victory coincided with the return of superstar guard Stephen Curry. While Curry was spectacular in his return, putting up 28 points, seven rebounds, two assists, and three steals in 27 minutes off the bench, Golden State is still missing backup point guard Patrick McCaw.

As most will remember, McCaw suffered the scariest of falls in an early April game against the Sacramento Kings when he was accidentally undercut by Kings guard Vince Carter. McCaw was stretchered off the floor in serious pain and was immediately transported to an area hospital for further evaluation.

Back on April 5th, the Warriors said they would evaluate McCaw in four weeks, and it’s now been just over one month since the incident. According to Warriors sideline reporter Keith Burke, McCaw has actually been cleared to resume on-court activities and has even begun traveling with the team, including the road Game 3 against the New Orleans Pelicans.

In his second season with the defending NBA Champions, McCaw averaged 4.0 points, 1.4 rebounds, and 1.4 assists in just 16.9 minutes per game. He had a bit of a rough go-around in his sophomore campaign, suffering a fractured wrist in February as well as this back injury as well. There’s no word yet on his availability to return anytime soon, but he may be able to return this postseason.
