Warriors star guard Steph Curry will attempt to make his return from a left leg injury in Sunday’s road game vs. the Lakers, per Chris Haynes of Bleacher Report/TNT.
Curry, 34, is averaging 29.4 points, 6.3 rebounds and 6.4 assists in 38 appearances, shooting 50 percent from the field and 43 percent on 3-pointers. He turns 35 years old in a few weeks (March 14).
The Warriors have been without Curry since the start of February and currently sit in fifth place in the Western Conference. They trail the fourth-place Suns by just one game, but also hold just a half-game lead over the sixth-place Mavericks.
Warriors GM Bob Myers recently expressed optimism that Curry would return.
“That’s the hope,” Myers said on Steiny & Guru of 95.7 The Game. “I think the reason why we can’t give you more definitive information is it is kind of predicated on how he feels. Can he get up to the workload?”
Curry will be back on Sunday barring a setback, Haynes reported.
