Kerr: No Minutes Restriction For Stephen Curry in Return

Kerr: No Minutes Restriction For Stephen Curry in Return

While Curry played, Kerr looked on from a perch inside the team's downtown Oakland facility as he prepared for Game 2 with his staff. We'll have to wait and see what shakes out, but what we do know is that barring any kind of insane setback, Curry will be in the game on Tuesday.

The opening game of the Western Conference semi-finals between the Golden State Warriors and the New Orleans Pelicans went to the dubs in blowout fashion. Additionally, while Kerr has ceased declaring starting lineups prior to gametime for the playoffs, Curry is fully expected to play and will be without a minutes restriction.

Curry has missed the last five and a half weeks with a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his left knee, and the Warriors have taken their time to get him back on the court. "Just try to use my energy as a spark".

Curry resumed full-contact practice on Thursday and scrimmaged five-on-five for the first time on Friday.

Curry is averaging 43.8 FanDuel points per game this season. He had been upgraded to questionable ahead of Saturday's matchup, but the team made a decision to give him a little more time.

The Warriors defeated San Antonio 4-1 in the opening round of the playoffs and demolished the Pelicans, 123-101, on Saturday.
