Great news has sparked the Golden State world as it seems things are headed in the right direction in regards to Steph Curry’s knee. He suffered a sprained right MCL in Game 4 against the Houston Rockets and it was reported to be re-evaluated in two weeks. Klay Thompson and company were able to get the job done with their superstar on the bench as they ended the series in Game 5 on Wednesday in a very convincing fashion. And now they are waiting for the series to end between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Portland Trail Blazers, who are up 3-2 with a chance to end things tonight in Portland. The Warriors want this series to go as long as possible because it buys Steph Curry more time but according to Marc Spears, he could possibly be returning sooner than later.
Warriors guard Stephen Curry is starting to feel better and is expected to begin testing his knee on the court next week, a source said.

This is great news for Golden State because the sooner he gets back, the more ready he is for either the San Antonio Spurs or the Oklahoma City Thunder. A healthy Steph Curry will be needed in the Western Conference Finals and that’s a fact. They may be able to get past the first two rounds without him but I’m not too sure about the Western Conference Finals. They’ve had tough match-ups during the regular season with both OKC and the Spurs that took some miraculous plays from Steph Curry to get the Warriors the dub, so if they want to make it to the NBA Finals, Steph’s presence will be necessary. Although they don’t want him to rush back and aggravate his injury even more, if they can get him back sooner and have him in rhythm for the Western Conference Finals, that would be a huge blessing for the Golden State Warriors.
