Warriors' Steph Curry on Track to Play in Game 3 Despite Finger Injury

OAKLAND - Two days after dislocating his left middle finger in the Warriors' Game 2 win over the Rockets, Steph Curry went through a full practice Thursday afternoon and is on track to play Game 3 on Saturday evening.

In addition to practicing, Curry went through his usual post-practice shooting routine with assistant coach Bruce Fraser sporting a wrap on his non-shooting hand.

With four days between games of this NBA playoff second-round series, Warriors coach Steve Kerr is hopefully Curry can get back to his usual form. 

"He's got it taped up but it's probably good we have a few days off so hopefully the pain will continue to go down as we get closer to game time," Kerr said following Thursday's practice.

After winning Game 2 to give the Warriors a two-games-to-nothing series lead, Curry said the biggest challenge in his recovery is finding a rhythm shooting. Curry shot just 6-of-16 from the field Tuesday, including a rough 3-of-13 from 3-point range.

Curry's injury is just the latest in the Warriors' backcourt. Guard Klay Thompson suffered a sprained ankle last week in Game 6 of the Western Conference first-round series against the Clippers. Still, Thompson has yet to miss any time. 

"We're very lucky to have the training staff that we do," Thompson said. "I know if we didn't have them, we would not be able to do what we do on a nightly basis."
