Stephen Curry Injury Update
Stephen Curry missed the final 12 games of the regular season with a foot injury but ended up being healthy enough to play against the Denver Nuggets in Round 1.
The Warriors eased Curry back into the swing of things by having him come off the bench for all but one game in the series. It ended up paying off as the 34-year-old averaged 28.0 points on .500/.404/.744 shooting.
With Curry having some time to further heal after eliminating the Nuggets, all signs point to him being a full-time starter in Round 2 and beyond.
