Curry making ‘good progress’ from leg injury, to be re-evaluated in a week

Nekias Duncan joins Brother From Another to talk about the Kevin Durant trade and how a season without a title will hurt the Suns more than it would hurt the superstar forward.

The Golden State Warriors have gone 2-3 so far while Stephen Curry is out due to torn ligaments in his shin area just below the knee, an injury Jeff Stotts of In Street Clothes said would likely sideline him for around a month (until early March).

That fits the timeline announced by the Warriors on Wednesday, saying Curry is making progress and will be looked at again next week. From the official release:

“The re-evaluation indicated that Curry is making good progress. He has started various individual on-court workouts, which will continue in the coming days. He will be re-evaluated again in one (1) week.”

The Warriors play at the Lakers on Thursday, then face the Rockets at home on the second night of a back-to-back Friday, followed by the Timberwolves on Sunday and the Trail Blazers next Tuesday.

The Warriors need Curry back, he is averaging 27.9 points, 6.4 rebounds and 6.4 assists a game, and the Warriors are 10.1 points per 100 possessions better when he is on the court. The Warriors are 29-29 on the season and sit ninth in the West coming out of the break.
