Warriors star reportedly aims for Friday return vs. Hawks

Warriors star reportedly aims for Friday return vs. Hawks”

The 30-year-old didn't travel with the team on its three road contests, in which the Warriors went 1-2 and are 2-3 overall in his absense.

Earlier in the day, a Friday return date (against the Hawks) would be the goal. Curry's repeated ankle setbacks, though, have probably been the most troublesome for the team.

The Warriors, averaging a league-leading 115.5 points per game this season, saw that figure drop to 103.3 during Curry's six-game absence.

Warriors guard Stephen Curry has targeted Saturday's (AEDT) game against the Hawks to make his return from a sprained right ankle, ESPN.com reported .

Curry, who missed most of December with a right ankle sprain, reinjured his ankle against the San Antonio Spurs on March 8 when he stepped on Dejounte Murray's ankle after attempting a fast-break lay-up.

UEFA charges Roma for ballboy's time-wasting late in game against Shakhtar Donetsk
SHAKHTAR DONESTK star Facundo Ferreyra sparked a mass brawl in their loss to Roma after shoving a ball boy over. The last Italian club to win the title was Inter Milan under Jose Mourinho in 2010.

To compound their health issues, Draymond Green was only able to play 12 minutes in the defeat as he suffered a pelvic injury. Curry is expected to return before fellow All-Stars Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant.

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. "The defending champs have been ultra-cautious in their handling of Curry".

For all National Basketball Association teams, the season boils down to one question - how do we compete with, and for the select few, how do we beat the Golden State Warriors in a 7-game playoff series?

Without Curry, the Warriors are 13-8, but with him in the team they are 40-10.
