Despite the rain clouds, things suddenly look much brighter in the Bay Area.

After missing 11 games due to a shoulder subluxation, Stephen Curry has been listed as probable and, barring an unexpected setback, will return to the court Tuesday against the Suns at the Chase Center.

This isn’t a huge surprise. Warriors general manager Bob Myers said Curry was close to a return and projected next Friday, but he beat that timeline.

Golden State kept its head above water while Curry was out, going 6-5. It’s helped that the Warriors had a lengthy homestand during this stretch and they have been dominant in the Chase Center. Curry was playing at an MVP level before the injury, averaging 30 points per game while shooting 43.2% from 3, and adding 6.8 assists and 6.6 rebounds.

The Warriors sit at 20-20 and are in a battle for the six seed, avoiding the West play-in. With Curry back, if the Warriors can get on a run they can make their postseason path back to the Finals much easier. The West remains wide open.
