Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told reporters Saturday at the team’s practice that he expects Stephen Curry, who is experiencing no pain in his ankle, to play on Sunday to play in Game 4 of the team’s first-round series against the Houston Rockets on Sunday.

The Warriors officially listed Curry as probable.

Curry told reporters Friday that he felt good and thought he would be able to play Sunday.

Curry was held out of a 97–96 Game 3 loss with a right ankle injury and has missed two straight games in the series, in which the top-seeded Warriors hold a 2–1 lead.

Golden State handily won Game 2, 115–106, led by Klay Thompson’s 34 points, while James Harden sank the Warriors on Thursday with a game-winning jumper to cut the series to 2–1.

Harden’s winner worth celebrating despite Rockets’ turmoil

The 28-year-old reigning MVP underwent two surgeries on his right ankle during the 2011–12 season. He averaged 30.1 points, 6.7 assists and 5.4 rebounds this season.
