We’ve all been waiting eagerly for Stephen Curry to return to the court. The Golden State Warriors were able to dispatch the San Antonio Spurs with relative ease in round one, while Curry watched from the sideline in (very stylish) suits.
Round two against the New Orleans Pelicans won’t be so easy. And with the offense sputtering a bit, and a very stingy defense awaiting them, a healthy Curry would be an enormous advantage for the Dubs.
And they may be getting that. Curry, who is scheduled to have his knee reevaluated on Friday, has been upgraded by coach Steve Kerr to questionable for Game 1 on Saturday night at Oracle Arena. The news comes after Curry went through a full Thursday practice.

“I would say he’s questionable for Game 1,” Kerr said. “What we have to do is see how his body responds the rest of the day, put him through another practice tomorrow. I think he needs to string together a few good days, but it was very positive today.”
This comes the day after GM Bob Myers went on the radio to say that Curry’s return on Saturday was a possibility.
So you’re telling me there’s a chance... pic.twitter.com/2F8Nre8MPr— NBCSAuthentic (@NBCSAuthentic) April 26, 2018
This emphatically qualifies as “good news”.
