SAN FRANCISCO — Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry is scheduled to be reevaluated Saturday for left shoulder laxity and the organization hopes he can be back next Friday when the team begins a six-game road trip in San Antonio.
Warriors general manager Bob Myers said on Bay Area radio station 95.7, “He’s been working on the court and has two weeks to reevaluate him this weekend.” “There haven’t been any hiccups, so (Friday) will be hopeful. That’s what we were looking for, something in that range of when he can come back. He hasn’t been in touch, but is doing everything. Always a seems to be.” Wear the armlet on the shoulder and arm.”
Curry injured his shoulder on December 14 against the Indiana Pacers when he collided with Jalen Smith in the third quarter. He immediately grabbed hold of the left shoulder and continued to hold it as he ran across the court. The Warriors subsequently called a timeout and two coaches checked Curry on the bench before returning to the locker room.
The Warriors have gone 6-4 since Curry’s injury, including the Pacers game in which he was injured. And they haven’t lived without it.
Golden State’s roster is depleted. In addition to Curry, Andrew Wiggins (right adductor strain, ailment), Jonathan Kuminga (sprained right foot), Jaimikal Green (infection in right foot) and James Wiseman (sprained left ankle) have all been ruled out.
Wiggins will be reevaluated later this week, while Kuminga, Green and Wiseman will be reevaluated in a week, the team announced.
Despite all the absences, the Warriors managed to find a rhythm, resulting in their first five-game winning streak of the season during the first half of their homestand.
Curry’s anticipated return will allow him to rejoin the team as they head into their next road trip, where they have the worst record in the NBA.
