Stephen Curry hoping to prove Steve Kerr wrong, return in first round

Stephen Curry hoping to prove Steve Kerr wrong, return in first round

In fact, it was silent.

Stephen Curry is far from content with his head coach's diagnosis.

The injury occurred when teammate JaVale McGee elevated for a block attempt and ended up falling on Curry's left leg.

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said Monday the Dubs "can beat anybody in the league" without Stephen Curry, who's now sidelined with a knee injury.

"The Warriors can't win it all unless Curry's healthy, I don't think", Riley said on KNBR 680".

This time, he said his first thought, jokingly, was, "Thank God it's not my ankle". How much longer? It depends how well Curry's body is able to respond to the rehab and treatment done on his knee. While Curry would like to prove Kerr wrong and return as soon as possible, it's more likely the Warriors will refuse to rush Curry back into action - and that presents the team with a challenge, one it has encountered before. But in the midst of the walking hospital the defending champions have been for the past couple of weeks, two-way player Quinn Cook has found himself the opportunist of the havoc revolving Steve Kerr's lineups. No reason we can't come out and play really well down the stretch and be ready for the playoffs. Leonard elevates the Spurs to a whole new level with LaMarcus Aldridge in the post.

Curry struggled to get to the locker room and did not return. DeMarcus Cousins might be out for the season, but Anthony Davis is alive and well.

Washington trailed by as many as 12, but cut the deficit to 2 in the third quarter and 1 in the fourth before Beal's 3-pointer from the right elbow off Porter's feed tied it at 88 with 4:25 to play. The Jazz would be hard because they're well-coached with Quin Snyder and a defensive presence in Rudy Gobert. This time, it's his left knee. He returned to start the second, playing with a bruised lower back.




Curry said what this team has endured from a health standpoint as of late should bode well for a silver lining. And there's also no denying that Curry is the motor that makes the Warriors run.

Plus while Curry has missed 16 games this season, in his absence, the Warriors have gone 11-5. "There's no way. I mean, he'll be re-evaluated in three weeks". But this team was built based on what Curry can do.

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green (illness) did not practice on Monday and is questionable to play against the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday.

Will the two-time MVP return in time for the second round of the playoffs?

"I dominated summer league and then they signed [Rajon] Rondo, Darius Miller and then it was a numbers game".

Defense will be a focal point for the Warriors without their most unsafe weapon out of the lineup.

Durant and defense will be the keys to surviving without Curry for three-plus weeks.
