The Golden State Warriors are an abysmal 14-48 and dead last in the Western Conference this season. Help could soon be on the way in six-time All Star Steph Curry who was out with an injury to his left hand and underwent surgery. After missing nearly three months, the Warriors broke the news of Curry’s return to the lineup Thursday night.
It’s welcome news for the Warriors and their fans, and judging by Steph’s personal Twitter, he has been rearing to go as well.
In the four games Curry competed in during the 2019-2020 season, he averaged 20.3 points, five rebounds, and 6.5 assists. The previous season, the Warriors' star notched an average 27.3 points per game, 5.3 rebounds, and 5.2 assists.
Curry and the Warriors face Toronto Thursday night in a rematch of the 2019 NBA Finals, a series the Raptors won 4-2 to eliminate Golden State’s chances at three consecutive championships. The Raptors are second in the Eastern Conference behind only the Milwaukee Bucks. They own the third-best record in the league at 43-18 despite losing the last three games to the Milwaukee Bucks, Charlotte Hornets, and Denver Nuggets respectively.
While Steph's return may not have an immediate impact on the team's playoff chances, it could be the spark they need offensively, while also determining where they pick in the upcoming 2020 NBA Draft.
