After Steph Curry got hurt, the Warriors won just two of their last five games

For the first time since tearing two ligaments in his left leg on February 4, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry was back on the practice court Tuesday, February 21.

The two-time NBA Most Valuable Player did non-contact work after the Warriors completed practice at UCLA ahead of their Thursday road game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Golden State coach Steve Kerr said of Curry, according to NBC Bay Area, “First time on the court, so he’ll do a few things lightly and see where he goes from there.”

After Curry got hurt, the Warriors won just two of their last five games ahead of the All-Star break, which concludes for them on Thursday. The timetable for Curry’s return remains uncertain.

Curry, 34, is averaging 29.4 points, 6.4 assists, and 6.3 rebounds through 38 games this season. He was selected an All-Star for the ninth time, though he didn’t participate in the game on Sunday in Salt Lake City. His career averages are 24.5 points, 6.5 assists, and 4.7 rebounds.

The Warriors sit in ninth place in the Western Conference. They are just one game behind sixth place, the final automatic playoff spot, and just one game ahead of two teams tied for 11th. The seventh- through 10th-place teams participate in the play-in tournament for the conference’s last two postseason bids.

Golden State could be missing another starter on Thursday. Andrew Wiggins, who didn’t play the final game before the break for personal reasons, wasn’t with the team on Tuesday, and it’s uncertain whether he will be back to oppose the Clippers. –
