Warriors’ Steve Kerr details Stephen Curry’s flu symptoms
But Curry was back on the bench on Saturday night. Steph missed Golden State’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers with a case of the flu.
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr suggested Curry may have contracted the illness from his young son:

The Warriors managed to defeat an injury-riddled Sixers team without Curry, as Eric Paschall and Damion Lee combined to score 47 points.
Curry’s return to action was bittersweet. He scored 23 points to go along with seven assists and six rebounds, and he had a number of highlight-reel plays. More importantly, the Warriors clearly played with energy and nearly bested the Raptors.
However, Curry shot just 6-of-16 from the field and 3-of-12 from beyond the arc. Rust is to be expected, though Curry will surely expect more of himself moving forward.
Of course, Steph needs to get healthy first.
