Steph Curry practiced in full capacity, questionable for game in Milwaukee
Stephen Curry was sorely missed by the Golden State Warriors in their home loss to the L.A. Clippers last night. The two-time MVP was nursing a freak ankle injury he sustained during shootaround.
Fortunately for Golden State, it seems that Curry is no longer affected by the injury after reports came out of the Warriors’ practice that he was able to partake in full capacity, according to Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

Head coach Steve Kerr even says that Curry “did look good” during the team’s last practice at Marquette University. However, Kerr also stated that Curry’s status is still listed as questionable for the game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night.
The champion bench tactician says that they’re going to see Curry’s performance in the morning practice before the game, according to an official report from the Warriors.
This makes perfect sense as the Warriors’ top gun has already been out for 11 games due to a right ankle injury sustained in New Orleans last Dec. 6. Fortunately, Klay Thompson, who missed the team’s game against the Clippers last Wednesday is expected to play in their Milwaukee game.
The Warriors have battled their way to the top of the team standings with injuries hounding several of their players in multiple occasions. Outside of Curry, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green have been in and out of the active lineup, nursing injuries of their own.
However, these are only considered as minor bumps since the Warriors are built to dominate when it matters most — deep in the postseason.
