NBA: Steph Curry Returns To Practice After Injury Lay Off


Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry took part in full practice for the first time since suffering a partially dislocated left shoulder, and could be back in NBA action next week. Curry, who was hurt in a game against the Indiana Pacers on December 14, told reporters at the Warriors’ Chase Centre that his first “no-limits” training session with teammates felt good.

“It was nice to break a sweat,” Curry said. “Today was the first day of practicing with everybody and being around the guys in terms of getting up and down, five-on-five with contact. It’s been, what, three and a half weeks? I feel like I haven’t lost too much.”

Warriors general manager Bob Myers suggested recently that Curry could be back in action next Friday against the San Antonio Spurs. Head coach Steve Kerr said that the timetable seemed possible, although Curry is yet to be medically cleared to return for the reigning champion Warriors.

“He’s progressed really well,” Kerr said. “There have been no setbacks. He’s getting on the court and doing more and more each day. As Bob said, we’re hopeful that next week sometime he’ll be able to come back. So we’ll see how it goes.”

Curry, 34, was averaging 30.0 points, 6.8 assists and 6.6 rebounds per game before his injury, shooting 50% from the field. The Warriors have gone 6-4 in Curry’s absence. But their struggles on the road – which pre-date his injury, have continued and the defending champions are just 3-16 away from home this season, 17-3 on their home court.
