NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Golden State Warriors reserve guard Patrick McCaw has been cleared for limited on-court activities as he tries to come back from a spinal bruise that has sidelined him since March 31.
The Warriors are not providing a specific timeline for McCaw's return to game action, saying only that doctors will re-evaluate him again in four weeks.
The club says McCaw was given the go-ahead to perform modified shooting and running drills after a medical evaluation on Thursday. The Warriors say McCaw ''is making steady functional progress'' in his rehabilitation, which has included supervised strength and conditioning work.
McCaw has averaged four points in 57 games this season.
Golden State holds a 2-0 series lead in its second-round playoff series with New Orleans. Game 3 is Friday night.
