Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry, who will miss the first-round of the playoffs due to a left knee MCL sprain, is targeting a return in the second-round of the playoffs — according to a report from Yahoo Sports.
The Warriors are up against the San Antonio Spurs in the first-round and expected to advance even without Curry since the Spurs will be without their best player, small forward Kawhi Leonard.
Curry has a three-week evaluation scheduled for Saturday (April 14) on his knee. He initially suffered the injury on March 23 at home against the Atlanta Hawks.
The two-time MVP averaged 26.4 points, 6.1 assists and 5.1 rebounds in 51 games during the regular season.
Curry has career playoff averages of 26.2 points while shooting 45.3 percent from the field and 41.0 percent from beyond the arc.
