Warriors coach Steve Kerr expects Curry back against Hornets

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Stephen Curry is eating well again, went through his shooting routine and worked out Tuesday, two days after the two-time reigning NBA MVP missed a game at Portland with the stomach flu. He is expected to play against Charlotte on Wednesday night at Oracle Arena as long as he continues to regain strength.

Coach Steve Kerr gave Golden State the day off Monday after back-to-back games - at home Saturday night against the Clippers then Sunday night at Portland, where Curry was forced to watch the game from the team hotel while sick. The Warriors had what Kerr called a ''maintenance day'' Tuesday rather than a full practice. Players could get treatment for any injuries, shoot around and lift weights.
