Curry did not participate in practice Sunday but will be ready to play in Tuesday's season opener against the Thunder, Logan Murdock of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Curry took the day off to rehab an undisclosed injury, per reports. The injury, though, is not serious as coach Steve Kerr mentioned that the former NBA MVP will be able to play in the season opener against the Thunder on Tuesday.
Curry will not be suspended for stepping on the court during a dead-ball altercation Friday, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports. Apparently, Curry stepped on the court during an in-game altercation in Friday's preseason game against the Lakers. After being reviewed by the NBA, it was decided that the former MVP will not be forced to sit out Tuesday's regular season opener against Oklahoma City. In addition, his teammate, DeMarcus Cousins who was also involved in the situation, will also not receive any discipline.
Curry is unlikely to return for the second half of Friday's preseason game against the Lakers due to illness, Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Curry poured in 16 points and dished out four assists while bringing down three rebounds in the first half (12 minutes) but was feeling ill going into the half. The Warriors are expected to hold him out for the remainder of the exhibition to ensure he's good to go for Tuesday's season opener against the Thunder.
Curry (personal) supplied 23 points (8-14 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four assists and one steal across 24 minutes during the Warriors' 117-109 preseason loss to the Suns on Monday. Curry returned to action after missing last Friday's preseason tilt against the Kings for personal reasons. The perennial All-Star already appears to be in regular-season form -- through two preseason games, he's drained 15 of 25 shots from the field, including eight of 17 from behind the arc.
Curry (personal) will play and start Monday's preseason contest against the Suns, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports. Curry missed the Warriors previous preseason contest for personal reasons, but he is back with the team and will regain his usual starting spot. His return will likely cause Quinn Cook and Tyler Ulis to see decreased minutes.
