OAKLAND -- Two days after saying Stephen Curry is "not going to play anytime soon," Warriors coach Steve Kerr offered a revised outlook.
"He's day-to-day," Kerr said Tuesday, prior to Game 5 of the first-round series against San Antonio. "We're just taking it day-by-day. We'll see."
After sustaining a sprain of his right MCL on March 23, Curry initially was given a four--to-six prognosis. He was examined again last Friday, at the four-week mark, after which he was cleared for modified practice sessions.
Those have, by all accounts, gone very well. Curry has shed the bulky knee-support brace for a slimmer version and is showing greater flexibility.
"Steph has been coming into the gym every day working and he's doing his thing and we are doing ours," Kerr said. "We're just hoping for the best, no making any predictions."
Kerr said last weekend that Curry was still not close to returning. Curry is scheduled to be reevaluated Friday. If all goes well, he'll be cleared for contact practices, with game action to follow, assuming the Warriors advance to the second round.
