The Golden State Warriors were holding out hope — slight as it may be — that Stephen Curry would suit up for Game 3 of their Western Conference semifinal series against the Portland Trail Blazers. They’ll have to go without him, though, as coach Steve Kerr told the “Dan Patrick Show” today there is no way Curry suits up tomorrow night (8:30 ET, ABC).
“So, Game 3 tomorrow, he’s not going to play,” Kerr said. “He’s getting better every day, but until he’s out on the floor with our team and scrimmaging and we’re seeing him move, and the trainers say it’s a go, we’ll just keep doing what we’re doing. But no way tomorrow, and I would say maybe a slight chance on Monday [for him to play in Game 4] if he gets great work in the next few days.”
Curry has played in just two of the Warriors’ seven playoff games so far, averaging 19.2 minutes per game. He last was on the court for the Warriors’ 121-94 victory in Game 4 of the first round against the Houston Rockets. In that game, Curry slipped on a wet spot just before halftime and did not play the rest of the game.
