Stephen Curry: Officially probable for Game 2

Head coach Steve Kerr said injured superstar Steph Curry, who has been on the sidelines every since spraining the MCL in his left knee on March 23rd in a win over Atlanta, was probable and should be back in the lineup.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry will make his return from a sprained medial collateral ligament Tuesday night against the New Orleans Pelicans in Game 2 of their Western Conference semifinal. Kerr also added that Curry will not be on a minutes restriction and he's been ramping up his activity at practice over the past few days in preparation for his return.

"He scrimmaged yesterday with some of the guys who came in and don't play as much". While the Warriors can score just fine without him - Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson are elite offensive players - the Warriors offense is built around Curry.

Without Curry in the lineup, the defending National Basketball Association champs have gone 5-1 - eliminating San Antonio in five games and taking game one of the Pelicans series.

Golden State's offense is 14.4 points per 100 possessions better when Curry is on the court this season.

Since Curry has been out, the Warriors have posted a 9-7 record, including a 5-1 mark in the postseason.

"He came out well", Kerr said of the workout.

It is very likely that National Basketball Association superstar Stephen Curry will take the court Tuesday night against the New Orleans Pelicans in Game 2 of the West semifinals at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. "He's been cleared. Now, it's a question of rhythm and how much time we give him".
