Stephen Curry begins to ‘speed things up’ for playoff return

Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry hasn’t played since sustaining a sprained left foot on March 16, but it looks like his return to the field isn’t far off.

On Tuesday, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said that while Curry has yet to return to practice, he is making progress in rehab.

Last week, the Warriors ruled Curry out for the remainder of the regular season and said an update on his status would be provided April 11. Golden State has three games left on the schedule and will wrap up the regular season on April 10 with a road game against the New Orleans Pelicans. The Warriors have already clinched a playoff berth, and the first round of the NBA playoffs are set to begin on April 16.

Curry, 34, became the all-time leading three-pointer earlier this season. In 64 starts, he is averaging 25.5 points with 6.3 assists and 5.2 rebounds.

The Warriors currently sit in third place in the Western Conference and one game ahead of the Dallas Mavericks. If the playoffs started today, Golden State would face the Utah Jazz in the first round.
