Even though Curry had initially been ruled out against the Bulls, and set to be re-evaluated later in the week, his status was upgraded to questionable after he practiced over the weekend. Curry met with the media on Monday afternoon and said he felt ready, and coach Steve Kerr said before the game that “all signs point” towards Curry being able to return.
Steph Curry "should be in" tonight, Steve Kerr said. "All signs point toward him playing."— Connor Letourneau (@Con_Chron) March 30, 2021
Curry hasn’t played since injuring his tailbone against the Houston Rockets on March 17. He’s missed five games since suffering the injury, with the Warriors winning just one of those five. Curry returns as the team tries to stop the bleeding and halt a four-game losing streak, which is tied for their longest of the year.
The two-time MVP has now missed seven games this season, with the Warriors going 1-6 when he’s absent (as opposed to 21-18 when he plays). He’s averaging 29.0 points per game this year — the second-highest mark of his career — while shooting 40.8% from distance, and dishing out 6.2 assists per contest.
