Two weeks after taking a scary fall that threatened to end his season, Stephen Curry will suit up for Game 4 of the playoffs against the Portland Trail Blazers, according to reports.
Curry injured his knee in Game 4 of the first round against the Houston Rockets. The Golden State Warriors closed out the series without him and took a 2-0 series lead on the Blazers before losing Game 3 on Saturday.
Curry was diagnosed with a Grade 1 MCL sprain two weeks ago, with the Warriors announcing that he would be “re-evaluated” in two weeks. That didn’t mean he would necessarily return in two weeks, though reports thereafter said that the Warriors were optimistic he would return early.
A two-week recovery is pretty swift, though it remains to be seen how he’ll look on the court. Curry seemed noticeably rusty in Game 4 of the first round after missing two games with an ankle injury. He hasn’t finished a game since the playoffs began, injuring his ankle in Game 1 of the Rockets series, then Game 4 with his knee.
Still, nobody will complain about the NBA’s most entertaining player returning to the court.
