Steph Curry participated in the Warriors' practice Monday, and is expected to play Tuesday night against the New York Knicks.

"He's feeling better today," Steve Kerr told the media on Monday.

Curry was ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Charlotte Hornets moments before the opening tip because he was under the weather.

"Even going through his normal warmup routine, he just did not feel well at all," Kerr explained after Golden State's gut-wrenching loss. "He came back [into the locker room], saw the Charlotte team doctor, went out, tried to warm up and just wasn't feeling good.

"And so we made the decision -- the training staff, and Steph and I, we all made the decision to not play him."

The two-time NBA MVP has not shot the ball well the last two games, going 8-for-25 and 11-for-29 overall against the Miami Heat and Orlando Magic respectively (he did rack up 11 assists in each game).

Over the prior 10 games, Curry averaged 34.5 points on 58 percent shooting from the field and 51 percent from deep.
