Warriors targeting Jan. 13 return for Curry from shoulder injury

The organization is hopeful Curry will be able to return next Friday as the team starts a 6-game road trip in San Antonio.

During Wednesday night's broadcast, Stephen Curry says 'everything is headed in the right direction in terms of return.'

The Golden State Warriors could get Stephen Curry back as soon as next week.

Warriors general manager Bob Myers said Curry’s rehab has been going well and the team is targeting their Jan. 13 matchup with the San Antonio Spurs for his return from a left shoulder injury.

“He’s going to get evaluated this weekend, and he’s working out on the court,” Myers said. “The two-week mark to evaluate him was this weekend, but there’s been no, at this point, setbacks or anything like that. So that would be — what, the first road game is on Friday,”

Curry has not played since Dec. 14 when he suffered a subluxated shoulder against the Indiana Pacers. The injury did not require surgery and was expected to keep him out for about a month. He appears to be right on schedule.

The Warriors played their 10th straight game without Curry on Wednesday night, a tough 122-119 loss to the Pistons on a buzzer-beater.

Before the game, Kerr confirmed that Jan. 13 is a realistic target date for Curry’s return: “I think so. He’s progressed really well.”

The Warriors have stayed afloat without their best player in the lineup, going 6-4 while giving valuable minutes to their younger players.

“I just told the guys how proud I am of them for holding down the fort these last couple weeks,” coach Steve Kerr said.

Prior to the injury, Curry was averaging 30.0 points, 6.6 rebounds and 6.8 assists.
