Since spraining his ankle against the New Orleans Pelicans on December 4th, Stephen Curry has been patiently rehabbing on the sidelines. Because of his injury history with that ankle (including two surgeries), many expected Curry to be out for a while.

On December 19th, the Warriors’ medical staff re-evaluated Curry, and announced that his “ankle is healing well and that he is making good progress overall.” He was scheduled to be examined again in a week’s time.

Luckily for the Warriors, they’ve only lost one game in Curry’s absence, and won their marquee Christmas matchup against the Cleveland Cavaliers. They really do have the luxury of sitting him out until he’s fully ready to go.

On Tuesday, the Warriors announced that Curry was recovering well, beginning scrimmage and working up to game shape. He’ll be re-evaluated again on Friday, which is only three days away. It sounds like he’ll be back sooner rather than later.

It’s great to see Curry on the mend: as the engine that runs Golden States’ offense, he’s been sorely missed.

The Warriors just aren’t the same without him.
