When Does Stephen Curry Come Back? MVP Teases Return Ahead of Spurs Playoff Game

The Golden State Warriors announced that Stephen Curry has made "steady functional progress" recovering from his injury on Saturday.

"Warriors guard Stephen Curry, who suffered from a Grade 2 left MCL sprain on March 23 and has missed the team's last 10 games was examined yesterday by the team's medical staff," the statement read. "The examination indicated that Stephen has made steady functional progress since the injury and, as a result, he will intensify his on-court rehabilitation in the coming days, which will include more running and lateral movement."

Curry suffered the sprain during a game against the Atlanta Hawks in March. The team has been vulnerable without Curry.

The Warriors will play in Game 1 of their first-round series against the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday. Warriors coach Steve Kerr has said Curry will not be back for the first round of the playoffs. 

“There’s no way he’s playing in the first round,” Kerr said. “There’s no way. He’s being re-evaluated in three weeks, so we gotta be ready to play without him and see how he’s coming along.

Curry has been updating his followers and fans about his progress on social media. The Warrior's guard posted a picture of himself on Instagram Thursday in the weight room with the caption "Soon come..."

On Saturday, Curry teased fans further by posting a video of himself on Twitter of him practicing on the court. 

"This is the best time of the year and I will back stronger than ever," Curry said in the video.

The Warriors will play the Spurs in Round 1 of the playoffs, starting Saturday. The game starts at 3 p.m. EDT.
