The Golden State Warriors said Tuesday that injured superstar Stephen Curry could rejoin team practices this week, but a timetable for his return to game action remains undetermined.

The 34-year-old guard missed the last 12 regular season games after suffering a sprained ligament and bone bruise in his left foot on March 16 against the Boston Celtics.

Golden State earned the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference playoffs. Game 1 of their first-round series against the No. 6 seed Denver Nuggets is in San Francisco on Saturday night.

The team said Curry “continues to make good progress in his recovery process.” The two-time MVP and eight-time All-Star began individual on-court activities last week, including shooting and running.

His status for Saturday “will be based on his continued progress,” according to the Warriors’ statements posted on Twitter.

Curry averaged 25.5 points, 6.3 assists and 5.2 rebounds in 64 starts during his 13th season, which saw him become the NBA’s all-time leader in 3-point field goals (3,117).

Golden State was 8-10 in the games Curry missed this season, including a 131-124 loss at Denver on March 7.
