Stephen Curry To Return For Golden State Warriors Against Portland


After missing two games because of a concussion, Golden State Warriors’ point guard Stephen Curry will return tonight when the Dubs host the Portland Trail Blazers at Oracle Arena.

According to Yahoo Sports Marc Spears via Twitter, Curry has been cleared for tonight:

 

 

The Warriors are 0-3 this year without Curry, including losses Wednesday night at home to Memphis and Friday night to the Lakers in Los Angeles. They are 8-2 when Curry plays.

Curry’s return comes at an opportune time; forward Andre Iguodala, who had taken over much of the primary playmaking duties for Golden State, is out indefinitely after injuring his left hamstring Friday night.

Curry has the top player efficiency rating on the club, according to ESPN.com, at 24.4 and is second in scoring behind Klay Thompson at 19.9 points per game.

Curry is also averaging 8.7 assists and 1.7 steals per night while shooting 43.8 percent from 3-point range.

Curry missed the Warriors’ loss at San Antonio earlier this month with a bruised ankle and sat out the last two games after he sustained a concussion in a Monday night win at Utah.
