Warriors’ Steph Curry on track to play again this season

SAN FRANCISCO — Warriors guard Stephen Curry is on track to play again this season.

Curry, who underwent surgery after breaking his left hand in an Oct. 30 loss to the Suns, will be re-evaluated in February and will most likley return in March.

He has recently been ramping up his shooting over the last three days, participating in drills without a cast or bandages on his hand.

On Thursday afternoon, Curry was seen going through shooting drills at the Warriors’ practice facility with assistant coach Bruce Fraser and team consultant Zaza Pachulia for at least an hour.

In December, Curry returned to Golden State’s bench after spending time in Los Angeles as he recovered from a planned procedure to remove pins from his surgically repaired left hand. Klay Thompson (left knee surgery) has also been present for several home games.

“They’re definitely restless,” Kerr said of Curry and Thompson last week. “They’ve been restless for this whole season.”

Curry’s hand injury is not considered as serious as the ACL tear Thompson suffered in June’s NBA Finals, and Thompson remains less likely to play this season.

“They’re both dying to play, and we’re dying to have them back,” Kerr said. “We’ll just keep staying the course.”
