Kerr: Curry closest of injured All-Stars to return

From ESPN - March 21, 2018

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry participated in his first practice since tweaking his right ankle two weeks ago and head coach Steve Kerr was impressed.

"Steph looks great," Kerr said after Wednesday's practice. "He's chomping at the bit. We will see how he responds in the next couple of days before we decide whether he plays or not."

The Warriors host the Atlanta Hawks on Friday. ESPN reported that the club is aiming for that date to be Curry's return game. Curry did not speak to the media after what was a non-contact practice session.

Draymond Green (pelvic contusion) did not practice. He is listed as day-to-day. He was kneed below the belt by Danny Green in Monday's loss to the San Antonio Spurs. Kevin Durant (ribs) went through a full practice and Klay Thompson (hand fracture) was active, but he was not a full practice participant.

Kerr said he does not expect Durant or Thompson to be in uniform this week.

"I think Steph is closer to playing than KD and Klay," he said. "...We are going to be cautious with all of them...This is not like a timetable of two-to-three days. It's just more of a feel thing."
