Warriors, Kerr provide injury update on Stephen Curry


OAKLAND – Today the Golden State Warriors updated the status of Steph Curry’s rehabilitation. The two-time MVP was re-evaluated earlier today by the team’s medical staff. He has been nursing a strained left groin and has missed the last eight games.

The Warriors released this statement:

“The evaluation indicated that he is making very good progress as a result of his rehabilitation program. He will begin to intensify his on-court workouts and, if he continues to progress at the level demonstrated in recent days, it is expected that Curry will begin to practice with the team next week, with the goal of playing at some point during the team’s upcoming five-game road trip.”

Coach of the Warriors, Steve Kerr, also commented on Curry’s health.

“He’s doing much better and we’re just going to keep taking it day by day and Rick [Celebrini] feels very strongly that he’ll play on the road trip,” Kerr said. “He’s anxious to get back, he’s handled it very well, supporting his teammates, getting in his rehab everyday, working really hard, so he’s handling it pretty much exactly as you would expect Steph to handle it.”

Curry having also been in a car accident on the way to shoot around yesterday Kerr also responded to questions if he had endured ancillary injuries from the fender bender.

“He’s doing fine today, he went and played a little scrimmage today in the facility and didn’t report any ancillary stuff from yesterday,” Kerr said.
