NBA: Atlanta Hawks at Golden State Warriors Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Every fan of the Golden State Warriors can finally breathe out. The news is official: Stephen Curry is playing in Game 2 against the New Orleans Pelicans.

This news was definitely expected, as Steve Kerr said on Saturday that his star point guard was “very likely” to play in Game 2. Yesterday Kerr officially listed Curry as probable, which had everyone justifiably excited.

But now it’s official. Curry will be back in the lineup when Golden State and New Orleans tip things off tonight at Oracle Arena. He’ll be in the starting introductions, and he’ll be bumping fists at half court before the opening tip, and he’ll be putting up glorious floaters and 30-footers just like he’s supposed to.

There’s not much to be said that hasn’t been said. This is terrific news, I am excited, you are excited, everybody is excited.

Steph Curry is back, baby. And 7:30 can’t get here quickly enough.
