Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is expected to return to action Saturday against the visiting Memphis Grizzlies.

Curry already has been ruled out of Friday’s contest against the Charlotte Hornets, the two-time MVP’s hometown team. It will be the 11th straight game he has missed due to a right ankle sprain.

“I doubt he’ll play tomorrow with a back-to-back,” coach Steve Kerr said after practice Thursday. “I don’t think it would make much sense, but I think he’s probably going to want to. But it’s more likely he plays Saturday. If all goes well, I expect him to play Saturday, but even if it goes well, I’m not expecting him to play tomorrow.”

Curry participated in 5-on-0 drills during Thursday’s practice. Afterward, he scrimmaged in 3-on-3 settings with Zaza Pachulia, JaVale McGee, Kevon Looney, David West and Patrick McCaw. The scrimmage was blocked off to the media, with a blue curtain separating the game from where availability was held.

At the conclusion of the scrimmage, Curry walked away without any noticeable signs of discomfort. He will be re-evaluated for a third and potentially final time Friday morning.

Steve Ballmer: Clippers Moving to Inglewood ‘come hell or high water’

“I love L.A. I also love my wife, by the way, but I love L.A. and I don’t want there to be any mistake about it. We want to be part of the fabric of this community,” said [Steve] Ballmer, who stepped down as Microsoft’s CEO early in 2014, shortly before he rescued the Clippers from the clutches of disgraced Donald Sterling and bought the franchise for $2 billion.

“We’re moving to Inglewood come hell or high water,” he said of a proposed arena near the site of the stadium being constructed for the Rams and Chargers. “We gotta have a house. So we’re working on a plan to get our own house. We want to get our own house. It turns out the way this works in L.A., which is much beloved to me, that if you start now you might be done in six years.” He then urged fans to contact their Assembly representative and state senator to urge approval of legislation that would accelerate the process. He probably inspired more than a few emails and phone calls.
