Watch Warriors' Steph Curry surprise random person on Instagram Live

Steph Curry is using his time while the NBA season is indefinitely suspended due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic to make this unprecedented situation a little bit easier on everyone.

Earlier this week, he held a live Q&A with Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, to help spread the word to thousands of people as to how to help flatten the curve of the pandemic.

Curry has also provided some laughs through his comedic commentary on other player's workouts, as well as through his own child's personal evaluation of him as a substitute teacher.

On Saturday, Curry added to the smiles when he surprisingly joined someone's Instagram Live.

As you can see -- and hear -- it was quite the pleasant surprise.

Curry told the hosts that he had been watching them all day. With so much additional time on his hands, he has to fill it somehow, but it's great to see that he continues to use it to brighten others' days.

Warriors forward Juan Toscano-Anderson is on a mission.

The Oakland native is organizing peaceful "Black Lives Matter" protests in an effort to unite the Bay Area community against racial injustices.

On Saturday, Toscano-Anderson's second "Walking in Unity" march took place in Oakland, and several of his Warriors teammates showed up alongside him.

Warriors guard Damion Lee and center Marquese Chriss joined Toscano-Anderson on the march from the Frank H. Ogawa Plaza to the Lake Merritt Amphitheater.

Elsewhere in the Bay Area, Steph and Ayesha Curry were in attendance at the "Black Lives Matter" march in Palo Alto, and they brought their daughter, Riley.

Earlier this week, Curry and teammate Klay Thompson took part in Toscano-Anderson's first march in Oakland, and their attendance meant a lot to the young Warrior.

“It meant a lot just because I know someone in my work profession has my back,” Toscano-Anderson said told NBC Sports Bay Area's Logan Murdock. “I know it’s tough when you in a position like Steph’s, I don’t want to say it’s hard but it's a thin line you have to watch where you walk. It definitely made me feel good to see somebody of his caliber and his notoriety here. It’s a pretty cool feeling.”

Protests have been happening nationwide for almost two weeks in the wake of the death of George Floyd while in police custody in Minnesota.

NBA rumors: Warriors would draft Anthony Edwards if they pick No. 1

NBA rumors: Warriors would draft Anthony Edwards if they pick No. 1

The Warriors reportedly haven't spoken to top NBA draft prospect Anthony Edwards on Zoom yet, but that doesn't mean they aren't interested in the Georgia product.

On Aug. 25, the Warriors will find out where they will pick when the NBA draft lottery is held. If the odds fall in their favor, Edwards could be a Warrior.

The San Francisco Chronicle's Connor Letourneau reported Saturday, citing sources, that if the Warriors landed the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, and decide to keep it, they will take Edwards.

"Sources have indicated to The Chronicle that if the Warriors land the No. 1 pick and decide not to trade down, they’ll likely take Georgia guard Anthony Edwards," Letourneau wrote.

But what if they don't get the No. 1 pick?

"If Golden State lands anywhere between Nos. 2 and No. 5, it’ll strongly consider Iowa State’s Tyrese Haliburton, Auburn’s Isaac Okoro and Israel’s Deni Avdija, among others," Letourneau wrote.

In NBC Sports California's NBA Mock Draft 8.0, Insider James Ham has Avdija going No. 5 overall, Okoro going No. 7 overall and Haliburton going No. 8 overall.

Ham currently has the Warriors picking Dayton's Obi Toppin at No. 3 overall.

With the 2020 NBA Draft not happening until Oct. 15, the Warriors have plenty of time to put together their big board of top prospects and devise scenarios depending on where they fall in the top five.
