Not much has gone the Warriors’ way in the last few days, but the team received some fantastic news on the road in New York.
Star guard Steph Curry is expected to play Tuesday against the Knicks, according to coach Steve Kerr, by way of the San Francisco Chronicle’s Connor Letourneau.
After losing two games in heartbreaking fashion — the latest, on Saturday against the Hornets, without Curry — Golden State’s record sits at 16-15, a far cry from the team’s stated goals.
In fact, Kerr said he thought the Warriors could begin to build momentum on this road trip. Now, his club will try to salvage this east-coast swing with a 2-2 record. After facing the Knicks, the Warriors take on the Pacers the next day.
But this is all about Curry. One might figure that he was extremely ill on Saturday if he was forced to miss his yearly Charlotte homecoming, so it’s fantastic to hear he’s on the mend. The proof is in the pudding, however, so we’ll see if he actually suits up in Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night.
Bonus info: centers Kevon Looney and James Wiseman could also soon return, as reported in the Bay Area Sports Hub, and per late info from Letourneau.
