The Golden State Warriors who have endured their worst season in the recent past could be set for the return of one the Flash brothers Steph Curry.
According to reports, Steph Curry could make his long-awaited return from an injury that has kept him out of the team for so long on the 1st of March.
The Golden State Warriors currently sit bottom of the Western Conference and there is no sign that they could even make the playoffs.
A return of Steph Curry could, however, improve on their stats and position in the NBA table standings and give coach Steve Kerr an idea of how to set up his team next season.
Steph Curry Is Poised to Make Return on 1st March
The two-time NBA Most Valuable Player suffered a hand injury early into the 2019/20 season. Last week, he was cleared for contact and said that he was targeting to return by March 1.
“It’s always been March 1,” Curry said after Saturday’s practice session. “But that for me mostly is just to give you a target. You have to have something to work towards in the rehab process because that gives you a barometer for each week, what you’re building towards. Like I’ve always said, I haven’t had any setbacks along the way, this has been a very long, strenuous rehab process, and it’s something I haven’t been through before, so it’s nice that I’m getting that type of response with every new challenge that I kind of go after.” Steph Curry emphasized
Warriors play back-to-back games on February 29 and March 1st- against Phoenix Suns and Washington Wizards. Shams Charania of The Athletic has now reported that Curry is set to return to the lineup for Sunday’s game against the Wizards.
Of the 58 games that the Warriors have played, they have only managed to watch just 12 and lost all 46 games probably their worst run under Kerr. If the return of Steph Curry will of importance is definitely something we will all have to wait and see but one thing is for sure, his shooting will be crucial for th eteam.
Klay Thompson will still be out for the rest of the season and could only be available if Golden State Warriors make playoffs (which is highly unlikely) but the certainty is that he will be with the team next season.
