Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry will return and start Tuesday night against the Phoenix Suns after missing the past 11 games with a shoulder injury, ESPN reported.
Curry’s minutes are to be determined in the hours approaching tipoff, per the report.
Curry, 34, sustained a subluxation of his left shoulder during a Dec. 14 loss against the Indiana Pacers.
He was a full participant in Monday’s practice, which included a scrimmage.
The Warriors went 6-5 in Curry’s absence but are riding a two-game losing skid. Tuesday night’s game is the finale of a season-long eight-game homestand for the Warriors.
Curry is averaging 30.0 points, 6.8 assists and 6.6 rebounds in 26 games this season, shooting 50.0 percent from the field and 43.4 percent from 3-point distance.
The two-time MVP and four-time NBA champion owns career averages of 24.5 points, 6.5 assists and 4.7 rebounds in 852 games (846 starts) with the Warriors.
