• Curry return makes no sense
  • Dubs risk exposing Curry to further injuries
  • Warriors would best save Curry for next season

The real status of Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors is expected to be known next month, one that could likely determine if he will sit out or continue to play this NBA season. With the Warriors 2019-20 campaign likely done, pundits feel that it may be in the best interest of the Dubs to sit out the two-time MVP.

The latest on Curry is that he could be returning by Mar. 1. Word of such comes from Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic. If true, the 31-year-old guard could be back in harness against the Washington Wizards, another team who has been struggling this NBA season.

Since breaking his left hand, little has been known on the actual health status of the three-time NBA champion. He did return to practice earlier this month, using his left hand during a shooting workout. However, Thompson claims that Curry looked ready to play in post-practice sessions.

At this point, it makes little sense to get Curry back into action. Although the Warriors have much pride, looking at the road ahead would be feasible. As of this writing, they are in the cellar of the NBA Western Conference with a 10-34 win-loss card. With Curry and Klay Thompson out recovering from their injuries, head coach Steve Kerr has had to make do with the crew he has right now.

First-year player D'Angelo Russell has been trying his best to hold the fort alongside Draymond Green. But even the two NBA stars are not at 100-percent, further compounding the woes of the Dubs woeful season.

In a previous post, Curry did return for the Warriors but to offer a morale boost. At the time, Kerr revealed how the 7th overall pick of the 2009 NBA Draft was not actively shooting the ball and doing other stuff like lateral movement or jumping.

Having played only four games this 2019-20 NBA season, Curry averaged 20.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 6.5 assists. If ever he does return, Kerr is likely to place him on managed minutes. Rather than exhaust his prized star, fielding Curry at this point may be nothing more to make sure he remains in step and prep him for next season.
