Stephen Curry is considered one of, if not, the best point guard in NBA history. And he built that for himself with the dynasty he created in 2014. However, all good things come to an end. That included the GSW dynasty that fell in 2019 with an injury-plagued playoff run. The Warriors never truly recovered and missed 2 straight NBA playoffs. A huge fall from grace.
Will Stephen Curry suit up against Denver?
Stephen Curry has not played in an NBA game since the 16th of March against Boston. He’s been out of play for almost a month now with a bone bruise on his left foot. In the 12 games that he’s missed, the Warriors have won 6 games and lost 6 games. Clearly not the dominance they want to be showcasing in the NBA playoffs against the reigning MVP.
According to Press Release by the Warriors states that Curry began individual on-court activities and could return to team practices this week. However, his status for the game on the weekend is ‘undetermined.’

The good news for Warriors fans is that in today’s team practices, Stephen Curry was working on his dribble moves and pull-up jumpers. He also did not look in any discomfort during those practice runs.

Coach Steve Kerr had announced, before today’s team practice, that regardless of how Curry is feeling at game time, he will not play until he’s taken part in a team scrimmage.
Steve Kerr said Stephen Curry has to get a scrimmage in with the team before playing an actual game.
“It’s essential. We’re not going to play him without getting a scrimmage.”

After his full practice run today, Curry showed sings of being healthy throughout and might take part in tomorrow’s team scrimmage, according to Steve Kerr. That is one thing he would need to clear to play against Denver and Warriors fans hope it goes through swimmingly.
