Curry 'not close' to return; may miss start of 2nd round

Curry 'not close' to return; may miss start of 2nd round”

According to Marcus Thompson of The Athletic, Curry is not close to playing, and, in fact, is still a ways away from playing.

Thompson reports that Curry is now set to return in early May, six weeks after the initial injury, a timeline that could have him missing the beginning of the Warriors second round series.

According to multiple sources, Curry is still not close to playing. Friday, April 20 would be the four week marker on the dot, with the six week point coming on May 4. "That could mean it's more realistic for Curry, who no doubt is desperate to return to action, to return for Game 3 of the next round - especially if you factor in the Warriors' usual cautiousness".

When Curry was originally injured, the Warriors said his recovery process would take anywhere from four to six weeks.

While that wouldn't guarantee a win or series lead for New Orleans at that point in this best-case scenario for the Pelicans, it would certainly improve their odds. If either of those two series makes it to a sixth game, the second round would start on May 1.

While Warriors fans want Curry to get back on the court as soon as possible, the team hasn't struggled much without him in the first round. The Warriors will play the victor of the series between the New Orleans Pelicans and the Portland Trailblazers, and with both series now sitting at 3-0, the second round could start as early as April 28th.

Stephen Curry could be looking at an early May return from his MCL injury.
