The Golden State Warriors may be the deepest team in the league, but they’ve been a little short-handed lately. Kevin Durant has missed three of the last four games, and probably should have missed all four.
The reigning Finals MVP admitted that the desire to play against his old team, the Oklahoma City Thunder, got the best of him last week.

Meanwhile, two-time MVP Stephen Curry missed Monday night’s game - his first missed game of the year - due to a contusion on his shooting hand.
With both injuries a little murky, fans haven’t been too sure how much to be worried. Thankfully, both superstars were back at practice on Tuesday.

Despite their presence, it’s still unclear whether or not Curry and Durant will be back on the court Wednesday in Los Angeles, where the Dubs will begin a six-game road trip by taking on the young Lakers. Currently, both are officially listed as questionable.

If Curry plays, he’ll likely wear a hand wrap to keep the pain and injury in check. That’s what he sported at Tuesday’s practice, and it didn’t seem to bother him too much.

It’s encouraging that neither player’s injury seems severe. Looks like we’ll be seeing them on the court again very soon.
