There’s good news and there’s bad news for the Golden State Warriors. The good news is that Steph Curry is almost back - his return is within sight. The bad news is that he won’t be back for the team’s next game, their showdown with the top team in the East, the Toronto Raptors.

After Monday’s victory over the Orlando Magic, the team said Curry might return for Thursday’s contest with the Raptors. Instead, he’s shelved for one more game, but the team has announced that he will be back on Saturday, when the Dubs take on the Detroit Pistons.

It appears that the team is taking an exceptionally cautious approach with their two-time MVP. According to Curry, he thought he could play on Monday, and was very eager to get on the court against Toronto, the team that boasts the league’s top record.

He won’t have to wait long, however, as the Raptors make their visit to Oracle Arena in just two weeks. On Wednesday, December 12, Curry and the nearing full health Warriors will get to face Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Lowry again.

As fun as Curry returning for the first matchup would have been, it’s just exciting that we’ll see the superstar back on the court this week.
