Stephen Curry suffered a huge injury a few weeks ago and it was a huge blow for the Golden State Warriors. The last time Steph played a game was against the Dallas Mavericks, on February 4, 2023. It has been a month since he has set foot on the court and fans await his return.

For those who don’t know, Steph suffered a tear to his “superior tibiofibular ligaments and interosseous membrane, as well as a contusion to his left lower leg,” as the Warriors announced. This has kept him out for a significant amount of time. The Golden State Warriors have played 9 games without Curry, and have won only 5 games during this period.
When will Stephen Curry return from injury?
Curry’s injury was a major blow to the Warriors’ playoff chances. Despite winning against the Oklahoma City Thunder with ease, they fell over to the Portland Trail Blazers and the Los Angeles Lakers. They lost to LeBron James and Co. once again to make it four losses without Steph. However, it looks like the loss against the 17x NBA champs was a wake-up call for the defending champs.
Steve Kerr: “It just feels like we’re coming together. Some chemistry. Some energy that’s forming.”

Since that game, the Warriors have won three games in a row, against the Houston Rockets, Minnesota Timberwolves, and the Blazers. Head coach Steve Kerr even claimed recently that the Warriors are coming together after a rocky last few months. Steph’s return would likely be coming at the best time, considering the Dubs’ recent form.
ESPN Sources: There’s optimism Golden State’s Steph Curry (left lower leg) will return sometime on next week’s three-game road trip, which begins Sunday vs. Lakers. Warriors play Thunder on Tuesday and Grizzlies on Thursday. Curry has been out since suffering injury on Feb. 4.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Curry will likely make his return next week and it could be during the three-game period. If the Warriors are fortunate enough, Curry could return against the Lakers and we could witness his brilliance once again.
The Baby-Faced Assassin averaged 29.4 points, 6.4 assists, and 6.3 rebounds until his injury in February. He was one of the best players of the 2021-22 NBA season and his numbers during the playoffs were a clear indication of that. Moreover, Steph was deservingly the Finals MVP, the first of his illustrious career. It certainly looks like he has brought that form this year and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down.
