Warriors star Steph Curry sets target return date, report says

He has missed five games for the Warriors since then, with the team winning just twice in his absence.

Earlier in the day, a Friday return date (against the Hawks) would be the goal. It was his fourth ankle injury of the season.

Both Durant (ribs) and Thompson (hand) are expected to miss several weeks with their respective injuries, but there is better news regarding Curry, who has been out for nearly two weeks with another right ankle sprain.

The Warriors announced that the team's medical staff looked at his ankle on Tuesday and said it was safe for Curry to return to team activities on Wednesday, meaning he will be allowed to play later this week. Curry re-injured his right ankle on March 8 against the San Antonio Spurs.

Kevin Durant (ribs) and Klay Thompson (hand) are out with injuries and Draymond Green left Monday's game against the San Antonio Spurs with a pelvic contusion.

With his well-documented history of ankle issues, they wanted to give him enough time to recover in order for him to be in the best possible condition heading into the postseason. Injuries that plague them now, could plague them in May and the Warriors are aiming for their core players, especially Curry to be healthy for another title run.

Golden State only has 11 games remaining on their schedule.

The Warriors are 13-8 without Curry in the lineup, but are a mammoth 40-10 with their star point guard in the team.

Steph is averaging 43.9 FanDuel points per game this season.

The Warriors now sit three and a half games back of the Houston Rockets for first place in the Western Conference with a record of 53-18.
