Kerr was expecting that Curry might relax while the end of the regular season before making his presence for Golden State’s first playoff series.
Warriors coach also stated, “The silver lining is that Steph will get a break before the playoffs come.” He further added that he is hoping for the best. Kerr further added that, if everything goes well, he will be ready to roll “. Besides that, Kerr also added that the team is anxious as it will learn how to execute without Curry.
In Wednesday’s loss to the Celtics, Curry was injured when Boston player Marcus Smart rolled up on his leg. He was said to be out indefinitely, and he was not available when the Warriors faced the Spurs on Sunday.
The foot sprain could be one of the solid reasons for Curry. He’s averaging 25.5 points, 6.2 assists, and 5.3 rebounds per game in 64 games this year, despite posting career-lows in field goal percentage (43.7%) and three-point percentage (38.0%).
