Any hopes of the Golden State Warriors’ Steph Curry returning at the end of the season were dashed once the news turned out to be untrue. April 1 marks the day of the first assessment of Curry’s injury.
Shayna Rubin of Mercury News report that the MVP will be reevaluated after the regular season ends after the regular season on April 11.
However, there may be a glimmer of hope for fans. Adrian Wojnarowski and Kendra Andrews report that the possibility that he could return to play a regular game of the season cannot be ruled out.
Curry initially injured a ligament in his left foot during a game against the Boston Celtics on March 16, when Marcus Smart lunged at Curry’s leg while chasing a loose ball.
Since then, to say the Dubs have struggled would be an understatement. The team has won 1-6 in seven games since Curry’s injury.
Steve Kerr Comments on Injury Update
Head coach Steve Kerr spoke to reporters after the April 1 training session and gave some more details about Curry’s detox.
“We were hoping that he could play one game, two games, at the end of the season, but it was just a long shot. Here’s how it turned out. His detox is still going well.”
It seems like the best-case scenario is for Curry to have to attend at least a game or two to get his feet wet before the playoffs, but the reality is that the two-time MVP is still not ready to return to the field. It’s safer to regret making sure he returns to full strength than to risk him re-injuring his leg during halftime.
Kerr was vague but detailed that Curry was improving while making more cuts with his movement. Despite that, Kerr doesn’t seem too concerned about Curry coming back and finding his way.
“Steph has been injured multiple times, either before or during the playoffs. He always comes back very well. I’m not too worried about him. All it takes is one shot to be taken and he’s back on track and we’ll see how things go over the next few weeks. ”
Some shooters use a bit of gameplay flow to return to their natural nature as players. However, Curry is not an everyday shooter, and is generally considered one of the best shooters. It won’t surprise anyone with the impact he will have upon stepping on the court.
Steph Curry sees when working out without a limp
For what it’s worth, Curry was randomly spotted walking on the sidelines during an April 1 practice session. With Kerr being the mother of details about what Curry is actually doing, we don’t know exactly. how far Curry’s body went in his rehab.
It’s probably not a bad thing that Curry is dressed up in the game and seems to be walking quite normally. Just recently on March 30, Curry went to the Warriors game against the Suns in walking shoes.
Hopefully no walking boots and no limp is a good sign and he can pick up the pace to get ready for the knockouts. The Warriors’ error rate is minuscule without Curry in the ring, so the pressure is on him to return as soon as possible.
