Steph Curry is close to returning to game action.
The two-time MVP was a full participant in practice on Thursday, Steve Kerr told reporters.
According to the head coach, Curry is questionable for Game 1 vs the Pelicans.
"Steph practiced 100 percent," Kerr said. "He did everything. Looked good. I would say he's questionable for Game 1. What we have to do is see how his body responds the rest of the day, put him through another practice tomorrow.
"I think he needs to string together a few good days, but yeah, it was very positive today."
Was today's practice full contact?
"It was contact," Kerr answered. "We didn't really scrimmage, but we had some contact, we had a little bit of up-and-down. I think today was an important day because it was the first time he's actually gone live-action ... he appears fine."
On Wednesday, Warriors GM Bob Myers said that it's "conceivable" for Curry to play on Saturday night.
A day later, it seems even more conceivable that Curry will play for the first time since he sustained a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his left knee on March 23 vs the Hawks.
Stephen Curry punctuates his #Warriors post-practice session like this: 'We back, Q! We back.' Q (asst coach Bruce Fraser) and Steph jump into each other giggling like kids.— Monte Poole (@MontePooleNBCS) April 26, 2018
