Stephen Curry, the Warriors’ star point guard, has been out for the past seven games due to an ankle ligament strain suffered on March 16th. The mishap occurred when Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart was able to dive into Curry’s legs in search of the loose ball.
When the Golden State Warriors gave an update on Friday, they said that their two-time MVP was “making good progress” in his recovery process.
“[Curry] has spent the last two weeks performing various rehabilitation exercises in the training and weight rooms under the supervision of the team’s performance staff. Next week, he’ll begin private on-court exercises, and his return to training will be determined by his progress over time. “
Golden State is currently ranked fourth in the Western Conference with a 48-29 record. Since Curry’s injury in the team’s 110-88 loss to Boston, the Warriors have had a minus-one record. They’ll play five regular-season games before the postseason begins.
