Steve Kerr optimistic about Curry’s status
The Warriors later announced Curry would not return to the game “for precautionary reasons” due to a mild foot sprain.
Golden State has one game remaining in the regular season Wednesday against the Memphis Grizzlies before the playoffs start this weekend.
Curry has a history of ankle problems and has required multiple surgeries on the right ankle he rolled Tuesday night.
Head coach Steve Kerr didn’t sound concerned about Curry’s status moving forward, telling reporters after the 112-103 win that he will sit Wednesday’s finale, but that he expects him to return for the first game of the playoffs.
