NBA.com staff report
Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is likely to return to action on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) against the Memphis Grizzlies, according to coach Steve Kerr.
"I doubt he'll play tomorrow with a back-to-back," Kerr said after practice on Thursday (Friday, PHL time). "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."
Curry has missed 10 games with a right ankle sprain. The Warriors are 9-1 in his absence.
The two-time MVP, who is slated to be re-evaluated on Friday (Saturday, PHL time), is averaging 26.3 points per game, 6.6 assists and 5.1 rebounds this season. Golden State tips off against Memphis on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) at Oracle Arena.
