But the bigger news is that Cook’s run as the starter in place of Curry could be coming to an end — it is possible that Curry returns as soon as Thursday when the Warriors travel north of the border to face the Toronto Raptors. That game against the Raptors would be perfect as the Warriors would have two games off before he plays, which is Warriors coach Steve Kerr’s preference.

Kerr says Curry should be a full-go at practice on Tuesday. Kerr wanted to make sure Curry had a couple practice days before returning to games.— Nick Friedell (@NickFriedell) November 27, 2018
Never to be mistaken for The Unanimous One, Cook has performed better as a starter so far this season than he has off the bench, albeit erratically — in his six starts so far this season, Cook has averaged 14 points, 4 rebounds, and 4.3 assists, but has shot just 12-for-35 over the last three games.
Hopefully this most recent stretch of starts helped him find his groove though and he can continue to be productive when Curry returns.
Here’s the full starting lineups for tonight’s game.
