Warriors target Friday return for Curry against Hawks

Warriors target Friday return for Curry against Hawks”

All-Star trio Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson are all now sidelined with injuries and it has seen the shorthanded Warriors struggle to function. "But I don't think so". With playoff season approaching, the Warriors will lean on a healthy Curry to attempt a third title in four years.

Curry is having another strong season, averaging 26.3 points per game on 49.4 per cent shooting from the field and 42.4 per cent from three point range to go along with 6.2 assists and 5.1 rebounds.

With three stars sidelined in a bout last week, the Warriors were toppled by the lowly Sacramento Kings, in Oracle Arena, no less.

The injury bug has also hit Golden State role players Patrick McCaw (broken wrist), who just got cleared to return to game action, and Omri Casspi (sprained ankle) who was ruled out prior to the Spurs game. The Warriors might ease him back into things, but either way, Quinn Cook is going to see a much smaller role once Curry returns.

The timetable on a return for Kevin Durant (ribs) and Klay Thompson (hand) appears to be a little further out, sources said. The Warriors have gone 2-4 during that span.

Curry, however, was not the only injury concern for coach Steve Kerr going into the game against the Hawks.

Every game and every win is vital for the Jazz as they seek to earn the highest possible playoff spot.

For all National Basketball Association teams, the season boils down to one question - how do we compete with, and for the select few, how do we beat the Golden State Warriors in a 7-game playoff series?
