Warriors’ Stephen Curry progressing, will pick up rehab efforts

Published: Updated:

Golden State Warriors star guard Stephen Curry is making progress in his recovery from a knee injury and will increase his rehab efforts, the club announced Saturday.

The team’s update comes one day after Curry was examined by its medical staff.

“The examination indicated that Stephen has made steady functional progress since the injury and, as a result, he will intensify his on-court rehabilitation in the coming days, which will include more running and lateral movement,” the Warriors said in a press release. “He will be re-evaluated again in one week.”

Curry suffered a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his left knee on March 23 and missed the final 10 games of the regular season. He also is missing Saturday’s Western Conference first-round opener against the San Antonio Spurs and isn’t expected to be healthy in time to play in the series.

In fact, it isn’t yet known when he’ll return to action.

“I have no idea,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said in his pregame press conference on Saturday. “He’s on the court doing some stuff ... when he’s ready, he’s ready. But he’s making progress, which is a good sign.”

Curry said earlier this week that he can see the improvement.

“Every day has been something good, advancing the rehab process,” Curry told reporters. “I’m looking forward to hopefully making more progress. ... It’s been an interesting two weeks so far. Just trying to get some rhythm, some strength back, some flexibility, range of motion, all that type of stuff.”
