Major Steph Curry Injury Update for Warriors vs. Lakers

The Golden State Warriors could get Steph Curry back vs. the Los Angeles Lakers

The Golden State Warriors announced a major Steph Curry injury update on Tuesday afternoon, releasing a statement that read the following:

"Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry, who suffered a sprained right ankle during last Thursday's game against the Chicago Bulls and did not play in last night's win in San Antonio, was re-evaluated today. The re-evaluation indicated that Curry is making good progress. He has been cleared to resume on-court workouts in the Bay Area and is expected to join the team for practice in Los Angeles on Friday. He will be re-evaluated again following Friday's practice."

With Curry being reevaluated on Friday, he is ruled out for Wednesday night's game vs. the Dallas Mavericks, but seemingly could make a return for Saturday's game against the Lakers. Curry joining the team in Los Angeles indicates that a return for that game against the Lakers is a real possibility, making this a big update for that game.

While Curry's status vs. the Lakers will of course be determined by how he responds to that practice and reevaluation, it seems there's a strong chance the Warriors get their star point guard back for that pivotal game. Wanting to run down the Lakers in the standings, Golden State needs to win that game if they want to catch their Pacific Division rivals before the season ends.
