Spurs beat injury-riddled Warriors, James lifts Cavaliers

Eleven regular-season games remain for the Warriors, who are 53-18 and comfortably in the No. 2 spot in the Western Conference.

Earlier in the day, a Friday return date (against the Hawks) would be the goal.

Curry, who sprained his right ankle on February 8th in a game against the visiting San Antonio Spurs, missed the last six games for the Warriors and was set to be re-evaluated today, March 20th.

Stephen Curry is targeting a return from his right ankle injury on Friday against the Hawks.

The Golden State Warriors have been handed a major injury boost after Stephen Curry's imminent return to action was confirmed on Tuesday.

Without the services of Curry, Durant, Thompson and Green, they scored just 75 points against the San Antonio Spurs on Monday.

The attrition in Golden State continues. Klay Thompson (hand) and Kevin Durant (ribs) are each expected to miss a little more time, sources tell Haynes and Shelburne.

With the postseason, the defending champions are being cautious with Curry.

Without Curry, the Warriors are 13-8, but with him in the team they are 40-10. He averages 26.3 points, 6.2 assists and 5.1 rebounds this season. Not only is Curry injured, but Golden State is now also without All-Stars Kevin Durant (ribs) and Klay Thompson (hand).

While the Warriors can use these skeleton-crew games as an excuse to give reserves minutes and rest their core four for a playoff run that could be a bit more hard than last year's historic march, the team could understandably be anxious to see Curry get back to action before the playoffs.
