Steph Curry plans to play again this season.
The Warriors' superstar point guard announced his plans Monday night during a press conference before the game against the Jazz at Chase Center.
"I definitely expect to be ready to play," Curry told reporters. "I don't know when, but at some point in early spring. It's just a matter of the rehab process."

Curry revealed that he dealt with some nerve irritation when he initially broke his left hand during an Oct. 30 game against the Suns.
"With surgery, there's always potential for nerves to be irritated," Curry said. "I had a little bit of that. That's kind of why it took so long for the real diagnosis because I had to do so many tests because that was one of the symptoms.
"Something to monitor as we go through the process."
Curry addressed when he might be able to travel with the Warriors on road trips.
"Not for a while," Curry said. "Part of the rehab is I have to get a second procedure done in the beginning of December, probably, and remove some of the pins they put in there. So, the swelling is going to be something that is of the upmost priority early in the rehab process, to give me a chance to come back and get my range of motion back pretty quickly.
"So, traveling is not in the cards right now. But hopefully when the new year hits, I'll be on the road and progress quickly in terms of things I can do on the court, in the weight room, all that type of stuff, and obviously be around the team as much as I can."
After Curry underwent surgery on his hand, the Warriors initially announced that he would be re-evaluated in three months. That timeline came into question last week because of a report that Curry was "unlikely" to play again this season. The Warriors immediately refuted the report, and coach Steve Kerr said the team was "confused" by it.

Steph's press conference should put to bed any doubts that the two-time NBA MVP will lace up his Curry 7s again this season.
