• Stephen Curry will return to the line-up after recovering from a broken hand
  • He’s averaging 20 points on 23-percent shooting from distance in his four games this season
  • Steve Kerr said this will give him a chance to build chemistry with the new guys on the team

Sidelined with a broken hand when the season just got started, Stephen Curry will rejoin the Golden State Warriors on Sunday when the Washington Wizards make a trip to the Bay Area.

Reports from The Athletic’s Shams Charania said that his broken left hand recovery is on track for his projected return since he hurt his hand on just the fourth game of the season.

The Warriors is at 12-45 and is at the bottom of the standings and the remaining games will give the team an opportunity to see how the rest of the team will fare with the two-time MVP on-board. While his break, major changes in the line-up were made where Golden State lost Willie Cauley-Stein to Dallas and D’Angelo Russell to Minnesota.

The Warriors stacked themselves with draft picks as they get a 2020 second-round pick for Cauley-Stein from the Mavericks while getting three second-round picks for sending Russell, Omari Spellman, and Jacob Evans to the Timberwolves to get Andrew Wiggins just before the trade deadline.

Before the injury, Curry averaged 20.3 points, 6.6 assists, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.7 steals in 34 minutes but is shooting a career-low 24.3-percent from the three-point line. He only had nine points in his last game against the Phoenix Suns in a 3-of-11 shooting before exiting the game.

Golden State coach Steve Kerr earlier stated that he is expecting to have the 31-year old back because the guys want to share the court with him, and the fans want to see him playing on the floor. Our fans deserve it. We need it as a team to springboard into next year, and it's the right thing to do," Kerr told ESPN.

Curry’s backcourt partner, Klay Thompson, will not be returning this season as he is still recovering from knee surgery after tearing his ACL during last season’s finals showdown against the eventual champions Toronto Raptors.
