Warriors guard Stephen Curry will return to the starting lineup on Monday night against the Hornets, two days after leaving the game when his shin injury flared up again. 

Curry missed two games last week with a bruised shin and returned to the floor against the Nuggets on Saturday. He exited in the second quarter after being kicked in the same shin by Jameer Nelson.
