Stephen Curry has been targeting March for his return.

He’s still on that track, but after an evaluation of the recovery process from his fractured left hand he will sit out all of February, the Warriors announced Saturday.

Curry suffered a fractured hand back on Oct. 30 when Suns’ center Aron Baynes fell on him. Recovery required two surgeries, one to put pins in to stabilize the bone through the healing process, then a second one to remove those pins once the recovery was far enough along. Both of those surgeries have taken place.

The Warriors also are expected to evaluate Klay Thompson and his torn ACL in the coming weeks. Unlike Curry, Thompson is not expected to play for the Warriors this season.
