Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is likely to return to action on Saturday against the Grizzlies, according to coach Steve Kerr.
“I doubt he’ll play tomorrow with a back-to-back,” Kerr said after practice on Thursday. “I don’t think it would make much sense, but I think he’s probably going to want to. But it’s more likely he plays Saturday. If all goes well, I expect him to play Saturday.
Curry has missed 10 games with a right ankle sprain. The Warriors are 9-1 in his absence.
The two-time MVP, who is slated to be re-evaluated on Friday, is averaging 26.3 points per game, 6.6 assists and 5.1 rebounds this season. Golden State tips off against Memphis at 8:30 ET on Saturday in Oracle Arena.
