Stephen Curry could reportedly return from an ankle injury on Friday.
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry is targeting returning to the lineup for the team's game against the Atlanta Hawks on Friday, reports ESPN.com's Chris Haynes and Ramona Shelburne.
On Tuesday the team announced the two-time MVP has been cleared to return to practice and will be back Wednesday.
Curry has missed the last six games after injuring his right ankle March 8 against San Antonio Spurs.
Golden State has lost four of the six games in his absence including Monday night's loss to the Spurs.
The defeat puts the defending champions 3.5 games behind the Houston Rockets for the lead in the Western Conference.
The Warriors played Monday's game without All-Stars Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson, while forward Draymond Green left the game in the first half with an injury to his midsection.
Curry is averaging 26.3 points, 6.2 assists and 5.1 rebounds this season for Golden State.
