Stephen Curry fully cleared for practice, targeting return later this week

By Jesse Reed

After missing the past six games due to an ankle injury, Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry has been cleared to practice by team doctors.

The Warriors released a health update on Curry, noting the hope is that he will play later this week.

Golden State can certainly use Curry’s services, having lost four of its last six games without the star point guard. The starting lineup has been hit hard with injuries of late, with Draymond Green being the latest casualty, though his pelvic contusion is not expected to keep him out of any games.

In 50 games this year, Curry has averaged 26.3 points, 6.2 assists, 5.1 rebounds and 1.6 steals per game.
