OAKLAND -- After three months as one of the healthiest teams in the NBA, the Warriors suddenly are getting more acquainted with the trainer’s room.
Point guard Stephen Curry, who had played 47 consecutive games before being sidelined Sunday in Portland with stomach flu, still is recovering and is listed as questionable for the game Wednesday night against Charlotte.
Perhaps because Curry did some light work on Tuesday, the Warriors are optimistic.
“He looked like Steph,” Kevin Durant said afterward.
“I would say ‘highly likely’ that he plays, but I’m not going to go ‘no doubt on it,” said coach Steve Kerr, who described Tuesday as a “maintenance day.”
Then there is center Zaza Pachulia, who wrenched his right shoulder diving for a steal in the fourth quarter on Sunday. He was scheduled for a MRI test Tuesday.
Meanwhile, backup big man David West continues to mend from a non-displaced fracture of his left thumb. He is scheduled to undergo an X-Ray exam on Wednesday and is declared out for Wednesday despite engaging in some 3-on-3 with his thumb in a protective wrap.
Curry, Pachulia and West are three of the team’s top eight players.
Prior to Curry’s absence on Sunday, the Warriors had lost only seven combined games among their five starters, with Pachulia missing four, Draymond Green two and Klay Thompson one. Only Durant has played in all 48.
