Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry has missed the last ten quarters of basketball in the team’s opening round series against the Houston Rockets, and Golden State’s loss in Game 3 has led some to wonder if he will be returning anytime soon in an effort to help them end the series sooner rather than later.

From Monte Poole, columnist for CSN Bay Area dot com:

After participating in 3-on-3 drills Friday afternoon, Curry said he felt no ill effects and expects to be on the court Sunday – even though he conceded he has “no idea” if he’ll be cleared by what has become a panel of coaches, executives, medical staffers and training staffers.

It certainly seems like Curry is ready to go and is fully healthy, but he did concede that the final determination is entirely up to everyone but him. And, to be fair, that’s the way it should be. Players want to play, but everyone else has to have the best interest of the player in mind. It still seems unlikely that Curry doesn’t play on Sunday, though.

A loss in Game 4 would tie up the series at two wins apiece, and it’s something the Warriors cannot afford to have happen. They need to get this series over with as soon as possible in an effort to get Curry as much rest and practice time as possible. The longer the series, the greater chance of re-injury. Still, Curry seems to be good to go for Game 4.
