Video: Steve Kerr says Stephen Curry isn’t ‘thrilled’ on delayed return
Golden State Warriors superstar Steph Curry is itching to get back on the court. It was originally thought that Curry might return on March 1 against the Washington Wizards, it is now believed that the star guard will return later in the month.
According to Warriors head coach Steve Kerr, Curry isn’t too happy about his delated return.
“He was not thrilled, but Steph is always very rational and easy to speak with. He put up a little fight, but also understood why we wanted to take extra precaution,” Kerr said per Anthony Slater of The Athletic.
Curry suffered a broken left hand all the way back on October 30 and as a result, only played four games this season before being sidelined.
In those four games, the two-time MVP put up 20.3 points, 6.5 assists and 5.0 rebounds per game while shooting 40.9 percent from the field and 24.3 percent from beyond the arc.
If Curry doesn’t return against the Warriors, he will next have the chance to return on Tuesday in an away game against the Denver Nuggets and Thursday against the defending-champion Toronto Raptors on TNT.
Without Curry and fellow star guard Klay Thompson, Golden State has understandably struggled. At 12-47 through 59 games, the Warriors own the worst record in the Western Conference and will likely miss the playoffs for the first time since the 2011-12 season.
