Golden State Warriors star point guard Stephen Curry is nearing his return to the court.
The Warriors are reportedly eyeing their three-game road trip next week as the target for Curry’s return, according to ESPN.
The road trip begins against the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday, March 5, followed by the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday and the Memphis Grizzlies on Thursday.

Curry has been sidelined for the past nine games with a left leg injury suffered when he collided with a Dallas Mavericks player in early February. Curry’s X-ray initially came back negative, but the results of his MRI clearly showed something the Warriors didn’t like.
«Any time a guy gets an MRI, there’s a level of concern,» head coach Steve Kerr said after the game at the time, via ESPN. «We’ll have to wait and see the results… This has happened many, many times over the years. So let’s cross our fingers that he’s okay.»

«If he’s out, then we move on, and we’ve got some games to watch, some game movies to watch. We’ll be ready, regardless.»
The Warriors have gone 5-4 since Curry was out, which has maintained their playoff position as the fifth seed in the Western Conference. But Golden State would obviously love to see the nine-time All-Star back on the court to help them reach the playoffs.
Curry, 34, is averaging 29.4 points per game this season in 38 games, along with 6.3 rebounds and 6.4 assists.
However, he has had to deal with injuries before this one, including a shoulder subluxation that forced him to miss 11 straight games from December 16 to January 7.
