Warriors at Rockets, Game 4: Stephen Curry cleared to return for Golden State

The Warriors will face the Rockets in another playoff matinee on national television.

The Golden State Warriors will face the Houston Rockets for Game 4 of their first round series today at 12:30 p.m. PST on ABC.

The Warriors can put a stranglehold on this series with a win and, as expected, they will have the help of Stephen Curry, who has missed the last two games of the series with an ankle injury.

Multiple reports over the last couple of days described that Curry completed the preliminary tests to return to action in time for today's game. The Warriors were just waiting for that official clearance today.

As written in a FanPost by ScipioTheYounger earlier today, the Warriors are significantly better with Curry on the floor. Given that the Warriors came within a point of beating the Rockets in Houston in Game 3, it's perfectly reasonable to expect that getting Curry back will be enough to win today.
