Should the Warriors bring Stephen Curry back?
While the Warriors have delayed Curry’s return, the team sounds committed to getting Curry back on the court this season. Steve Kerr said he wanted Curry to gain some familiarity with all the new players the team has brought in this season, especially Andrew Wiggins.
Without Curry and Klay Thompson, the Warriors sit at 12-47 and have the worst record in the NBA. The Warriors have already said Thompson will not play this season due to an ACL injury.
