Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry, who has been out since Dec. 4 with a right ankle sprain, is expected to return on Saturday at home against the Memphis Grizzlies.
Curry won’t play Friday at home vs. Charlotte, but coach Steve Kerr said the team was aiming for a Saturday return against Memphis.
“I doubt he’ll play (today) with a back-to-back,” Kerr said to reporters. “I don’t think it would make much sense, but I think he’s probably going to want to. But it’s more likely he plays Saturday. If all goes well, I expect him to play Saturday.”
