    Steve Kerr discusses Steph Curry's status: 'If these were the playoffs right now...'

    Steph Curry tweaked his right ankle vs the Spurs on March 8.

    He missed the last three games and will miss at least the next three games, too.

    The Warriors will evaluate Curry next Tuesday, and he may return to game action next Friday against the Hawks.

    "We're obviously prioritizing health, No. 1 ... if these were the playoffs right now, Steph would be playing," Steve Kerr said on KNBR 680 on Thursday. "But we have a better chance to rehab him over the next 10 days.

    And a better chance to keep him around without tweaking that thing again for the long term."

    The other Splash Brother -- Klay Thompson -- is going to be evaluated next Thursday.

    But he's expected to miss a couple weeks.

    Kerr is well aware that "our fans panic a little bit," but he wants them to remember...

    "Nobody's out for the year. A couple guys are out for a couple weeks," Kerr told reporters on Thursday. "We have seemed invulnerable the last few years ... I think people are seeing our vulnerability this year. We've always known that we were vulnerable. We all are.

    "It's just been exposed more this year through injury, through whatever."

    So basically... relax!
