Stephen Curry will miss at least one more playoff games as Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has ruled out the point guard for Saturday's Game 3 against the Portland Trail Blazers. Kerr made the announcement on “The Dan Patrick Show” on Friday.
Curry is still recovering from a sprained MCL, and has missed the first two games of the team’s second-round playoff series. Kerr said there’s a “slight chance” Curry will play in Game 4 on Monday, though Kerr confirmed that Curry hasn't practiced.
"He's getting better every day," Kerr said. "But until he's out on the floor with our team and he's scrimmaging and we're seeing him move and our trainers say it's a go, we'll just keep doing what we're doing."
Even though Curry is coming off one of the best regular seasons in NBA history, the Warriors haven’t been in a rush to get their star sharpshooter back on the court. Golden State won both Game 1 and Game 2 by double-digits, and they easily closed out their first-round series against the Houston Rockets without Curry.
Curry last played on April 24. The reigning MVP was on the court for a total of 39 minutes in two postseason games.
In the regular season, Curry averaged 31.6 points per game on 50.4 percent shooting. He also averaged 6.7 assists and 5.4 rebounds.
