Stephen Curry expected to return Saturday vs. Memphis Grizzlies
NBA.com staff reports
Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is likely to return to action on Saturday against the Memphis Grizzlies, according to coach Steve Kerr.
“I doubt he’ll play tomorrow with a back-to-back,” Kerr said after practice on Thursday. “I don’t think it would make much sense, but I think he’s probably going to want to. But it’s more likely he plays Saturday. If all goes well, I expect him to play Saturday.
Hear from @SteveKerr as he talks competitive drive & more after today’s practice.
