Steph Curry gets platelet-rich plasma treatment to speed up knee recovery
Stephen Curry and the Warriors are hoping platelet-rich plasma treatment on his right knee can speed up his recovery.
There is no exact timetable for Stephen Curry's eventual return to the Golden State Warriors' lineup. The Warriors have been playing quite well without their star and now have a 2-0 series lead against the Portland Trail Blazers in the second round.
Yet while Golden State is doing just fine without Curry, it obviously wants him back as soon as possible. In an effort to speed up his recovery, Curry received platelet-rich plasma treatment on his ailing right knee.
Warriors guard Stephen Curry said Tuesday he received platelet-rich plasma treatment as part of his treatment on his sprained right knee.
PRP, which is said to promote healing, was given to Curry on the second day of his recovery process, he said.
Despite the treatment, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr is still unsure when Curry will actually return.
"He's doing pretty well," Kerr said Tuesday as transcribed by CBS Sports' Zach Harper. "He's going through the rehab process and he's making the improvement that we are looking for, but he hasn't been on the floor with the team at this point. Hopefully that will come, but I don't know when, though."
Curry has said that there's a "pretty good chance" he will return by Game 3, which will be played Saturday. Still, the Warriors are also going to be quite cautious with Curry, as they will need him in the next round in order to secure another Finals appearance.
