    As Warriors inch closer to full health, Kerr provides update on Durant, Klay

    OAKLAND -- Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson all worked up sweat Wednesday, putting the Warriors ever closer to being whole again.

    Only Draymond Green did not full participate in the non-contact practice session, but he's expected back in a matter of days.

    So while the Warriors are a little more than a week away from possibly having the full squad available, they're starting to feel a little less vulnerable.

    "They're all kind of day-to-day," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. "Steph is closer to playing than KD and Klay."

    Curry has not played since March 8, when he tweaked his surgically repaired right ankle. He missed the last six games. Durant (rib cartilage injury) and Thompson (right thumb sprain) sustained their injuries on March 11 at Minnesota, though Durant played one more game, March 14, before receiving a diagnosis. Durant missed the last three games, Thompson the last four.

    Green sustained a pelvic contusion Monday night at San Antonio, but believes he will be available this weekend, either Friday against Atlanta or Sunday against Utah.

    Curry, though, is fully cleared for all activities.

    "Steph looks great," Kerr said. "He's chomping at the bit. But we'll see how he responds in the next couple days before we decide whether he plays or not."

    Durant loathes acknowledging pain or injuries, and his return will be dictated by his ability with withstanding the contact inevitable in the course of a game.

    "I don't expect KD to play this week," Kerr said. "It's not like a timetable . . . just sort of a feel thing. It's symptomatic with him."

    Thompson seems, at this point, the furthest away from full activity.

    "Klay did some stuff," Kerr said, "but not full participation."
