Report: Stephen Curry returning to lineup Sunday

From NBA Twitter and media reports

Feb 25, 2020 5:21 PM ET

Stephen Curry has played just 4 games this season, averaging 20.3 points and 6.5 assists.

Warriors star point guard Stephen Curry will return to the lineup on Sunday against the Wizards (8:30 ET, NBA League Pass), according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.

"It's always been March 1," Curry said following Saturday's scrimmage. "But that for me mostly is just to give you a target. You have to have something to work towards in the rehab process because that gives you a barometer for each week, what you're building towards. Like I've always said, I haven't had any setbacks along the way, this has been a very long, strenuous rehab process, and it's something I haven't been through before, so it's nice that I'm getting that type of response with every new challenge that I kind of go after."

While Curry is excited about his progress, he still says his hand -- which he broke Oct. 30 in a collision with Suns center Aron Baynes -- isn't back to normal. 

 
Stephen Curry: 'I'm getting used to the new normal.'

"I'm getting used to what a new normal is," Curry said. "It definitely feels different than the right [hand], But you can try to get to a point when you're actually playing basketball, you don't think about it. Whether it feels all the way the same or not, it really doesn't matter. As long as I'm not worried about the things that I'm trying to do, the strength part of it. And how it bounces back the next day after pushing it, whether it's contact stuff or all that, you have to pay attention to all that type of stuff ... it is going to feel different."
