Curry unlikely to play Game 3

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has admitted that point guard Stephen Curry is unlikely to make his comeback in Game 3 against the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday.

Curry has not played since he sprained his MCL when slipping and banging his knee on the ground during Game 4 against the Houston Rockets on April 24.

The 28-year-old had been aiming to return by Game 3 in his side’s Western Conference semi-final series against the Trail Blazers, but Kerr reiterated that he does not think it will happen.

“It’s tough to see him playing Saturday,” Kerr told reporters. “He’s gotten better and better each day.”

Despite Curry still not having taken part in any scrimmages, Kerr is refusing to rule him out of Game 4 on Monday.

“Everything has gone very smoothly. He hasn’t had any setbacks,” he said. “He’s ramping up things in the weight room.”

Even without Curry in the side, the Warriors have established a 2-0 lead over the Trail Blazers.
