Stephen Curry (sprained right knee) didn't practice on Thursday and Steve Kerr doesn't expect him to play in Game 3 on Saturday.
Curry did some on-court work after practice but his status for Saturday's Game 3 remains doubtful. Warriors GM Bob Myers said earlier in the week that Curry needs to play "a little bit of 3-on-3 or 5-on-5" before returning to action, which he's yet to do. We'll have a better feel for his status after Friday's practice. May 5 - 3:38 PM

Stephen Curry said on Tuesday that he underwent a platelet-rich plasma treatment on his sprained right knee as part of his recovery process.

PRP injections have been shown to speed up the recovery process, and Curry reportedly underwent the treatment one day after initially suffering the injury. The Dubs are hopeful that Curry will be able to get back on the court for either Saturday's Game 3 or Monday's Game 4, and we'll have a better idea on his status following Thursday's practice. However, given that the Dubs are currently up 2-0 in their second-round series, it wouldn't be surprising to see Curry spend at least one more game on the sidelines.
May 4 - 9:05 AM

Warriors' GM Bob Myers said that Stephen Curry (knee) could return for Saturday's Game 3 or Monday's Game 4.

"I know everybody wants to know is it going to be Saturday, is it going to be Monday?" said Meyers of Curry's timetable. "It's in that range, but it's hard to say. But those games [3 and 4] are so close together... He's got to play a little bit of 3-on-3 or 5-on-5. He hasn't done any of that stuff yet." Steve Kerr is hopeful that Curry can go through a full scrimmage on Thursday, and if he can get through that scrimmage, it sounds like he has a decent chance of suiting up for Game 3. Stay tuned.
May 3 - 6:24 PM

Steve Kerr said that he's hopeful Stephen Curry (knee) will be able to scrimmage with the team during Thursday's practice.

"Thursday, we will definitely get up and down and hopefully he'll be able to take part, but we don't know yet," Kerr said. "I don't know how it'll play out here. It's not like if we're 2-2 or something we're not going to bring him back. We can't let the series score determine whether we bring him back, it's really based on his health and his rhythm." Curry is set to spend Tuesday's Game 2 on the sidelines, but the Dubs are holding out hope that he can return for Saturday's Game 3. Kerr also added that Curry's minutes will likely be limited upon his return, but he wouldn't put an exact figure on the potential minutes cap.

Coach Steve Kerr said Stephen Curry (knee) won't play in Game 2 on Tuesday.

The team will list him as doubtful "just to give people something to chew on," according to Kerr. The Warriors certainly didn't need him on Sunday in an easy win. They would probably like to hold him out for the entire series, but there is a chance he can suit up in Game 3 or 4. Shaun Livingston will get another start for Curry.
May 2 - 2:36 PM

Stephen Curry (knee) said that there is a "pretty good" chance that he will be able to play in Game 3 vs. the Blazers on Saturday.

His chances of playing in Game 2 on Tuesday are reportedly pretty "slim," but it sounds like he's making good progress and coach Steve Kerr said that he might start scrimmaging later this week. There are going to be a ton of updates on the MVP all week, so expect another one on Monday. Shaun Livingston will hold down the fort at point guard until Curry can return.
May 1 - 5:16 PM

Stephen Curry (knee) has a "slim" chance to play in Game 2 vs. the Blazers on Tuesday.

He obviously won't play in Game 1 on Sunday, but Curry was able to do some stationary shooting on Saturday and coach Steve Kerr is open to the idea of allowing the MVP to start scrimmaging early next week. With Curry out on Sunday, Shaun Livingston will draw the start and Draymond Green will spend a lot of time running the offense. Andre Iguodala will have more responsibility as well.
May 1 - 1:54 PM

Coach Steve Kerr said Stephen Curry (knee) doesn't have much of a chance to play in Game 2 on Tuesday.

This is good news because Kerr did not rule him out. Curry is still not doing on-court work and he's obviously not going to play in Game 1. The MVP is doing some work in the training room and has said he's hoping to return before May 9. Shaun Livingston will be running the point while basically every other player steps up.
Apr 30 - 3:20 PM

Stephen Curry (knee) said he is hoping to return before the two-week return date of May 9.

He's not wasting any time to get back out there and is getting treatment three times per day. Curry is starting to do some work in the training room, but the big step will be to do some practice with contact. He'll likely miss at least a couple games in the second round, which will start on Sunday or Tuesday depending if the Clippers-Blazers series goes to seven games.
Apr 29 - 5:08 PM

Stephen Curry (knee) has been doing well in the training room, according to coach Steve Kerr.

He is not doing on-court work yet and preview reports suggest he's shooting to start that next week. Curry is likely going to miss the first two games of the second round and will likely be rooting for the Clippers tonight to push back Game 1 to Tuesday. It'll be Shaun Livingston and Andre Iguodala stepping up the most with more Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.
Apr 29 - 2:56 PM

Stephen Curry (knee) will begin testing his knee on the court next week, according to Marc J. Spears of ESPN.

Spears reports that Curry is feeling better, according to sources, and is targeting next week to test his knee as he attempts to get back on the court. The Warriors are still awaiting a winner from the Clippers-Trail Blazers series, so he'll have some extra time to recover from his Grade 1 sprain. Shaun Livingston will continue to start as long as Curry is out, but we'll undoubtedly have updates before Golden State's next series starts.
Apr 28 - 12:30 PM

The MRI on Stephen Curry's knee was negative and showed no damage with a diagnosis of a Grade 1 sprain.

This is good news. Curry will be re-evaluated in two weeks and the Warriors will undoubtedly be very careful with their MVP. He could still be out beyond this two-week prognosis as well. The Warriors will also be rooting for the Blazers to make it a long series to give them more time off. With Curry out, it'll be Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston handling the ball more. Plus, we'll see more shots and play-making chances for Draymond Green and Klay Thompson.
Apr 25 - 3:25 PM

Stephen Curry (knee) tweeted he's going to be "alright" Monday afternoon.

This doesn't really say much except that Curry likely received his diagnosis. Curry said "all things considered" in his tweet, so it does sound like he might have at least something wrong. We'll have a clearer update soon.
Apr 25 - 3:09 PM

The Warriors "early fear" is that Steph Curry sustained a right MCL sprain, a source told Sam Amick of USA Today.

San Francisco sportscaster Mike Shumann of ABC 7 reported the same thing late on Sunday evening, so there is certainly some smoke behind this potential fire. We won't have an official diagnosis until the Warriors release Curry's MRI results, and his timetable to return will be dependent upon on the severity of the sprain if the early intel is proven accurate. We'd expect him to miss at least the remainder of the first round with the very real potential for more time off. Without Curry, Shaun Livingston, Andre Iguodala, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and every other member of the team will be forced to step up.

Stephen Curry (sprained right knee) will have an MRI on Monday.

For what it's worth, San Francisco sportscaster Mike Shumann of ABC 7 reported that a Warriors team doctor told him Curry sustained a sprained right MCL. Coach Steve Kerr said that Curry wanted to play in the second half, but the Warriors made the decision to hold him out which was probably the right call. Kerr didn't make it sound like he's expecting a quick return for Curry, so it's hard to imagine him playing in at least the rest of the first round. Hopefully we will get a timetable after the Warriors release the results of the MRI on Monday. Shaun Livingston will benefit if Curry misses time along with Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala and Klay Thompson.
