Stephen Curry has Been Cleared to Practice

Stephen Curry is targeting a return from his ankle injury on Friday against the Hawks. Golden State has the next three nights off, so Friday is the earliest that Curry could get back on the court.

Curry, who missed most of December with a right ankle sprain, reinjured his ankle against the Spurs on March 9 (AEDT) when he stepped on Dejounte Murray's ankle after attempting a fast-break lay-up. If the team is satisfied with that assessment and Curry avoids setbacks this week, he should be able to face the Hawks on Friday.

According to previously stated injury timelines, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson should still be out for the game, so Curry won't have almost as many weapons around him as he's accustomed to.

This was the fourth injury of the season for Curry, who remained in the Bay Area with the team's head of physiotherapy when the team was on the road.

Durant was expected to be out for two weeks after he suffered an incomplete rib cartilage fracture with his last appearance coming against the Los Angeles Lakers on March 14.

The Warriors are 13-8 when Curry has been sidelined this season, compared to 40-10 when he's in the lineup.

Steph is averaging 43.9 FanDuel points per game this season. Thomson, meanwhile, is out with a fractured right thumb. Meanwhile, Draymond Green left Monday's loss to the Spurs with a pelvic contusion, but said after the game that the injury is "not serious", per Haynes. The Warriors power forward was hopeful that it was a minor knock suggesting that he is unlikely to miss any of the upcoming games. "But I don't think so".
