The Golden State Warriors have been without Steph Curry for the majority of this season, but the reigning Western Conference champions should have him back on the court in the near future.
Warriors owner Joe Lacob recently spoke to Mark Medina of USA Today about Curry’s recovery. He made it known that Golden State will play the two-time MVP once he’s cleared to play and will not worry about draft position.
“Steph is coming back. That’s not even a discussion internally,” Lacob told Medina. “He’s ready to play so he should play. By the way, we’ll try to win every game. I’m not really about, ‘Let’s lose every game so we can get the best pick.’ You try to do that, you’re messing with the basketball gods. So we don’t believe in that.”
Curry hasn’t been cleared for contact during practice just yet. However, the sharpshooting point guard seems to be on the right track as a video has surfaced of him knocking down 12-straight three-pointers in practice on Wednesday.
A light 12 in a row for Steph.
Hand looking healthy.

The playoffs won’t be in Golden State’s future this season, but the potential return of Curry is definitely great news for the franchise.
Steve Kerr will have the chance to see how Curry plays alongside Andrew Wiggins, who was acquired right before the trade deadline.
Curry isn’t the only key member of the Warriors on the sidelines. Klay Thompson hasn’t played this season due to a torn ACL that he suffered back in the 2019 NBA Finals.
