Sources: Steph Curry Cleared to Return Saturday, ‘Probably’ on Minutes Restriction

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry has been cleared to return for Saturday’s home game against the Memphis Grizzlies, league sources told ESPN.

Barring an unforeseen setback of the right ankle he sprained on Dec. 4 in New Orleans, Curry is returning to action after missing the team’s past 11 games, a span in which the Warriors went 9-2.

On Friday, Curry underwent his third and final re-evaluation since sustaining the injury and he was deemed physically ready to rejoin the team. During pregame availability in advance of Friday’s 111-100 loss to the Charlotte Hornets, head coach Steve Kerr said the two-time MVP would “probably” be on a minutes restriction.

“I would say most likely he’ll play,” Kerr said. “I talked to him today and he was feeling good, so we’ll see how he’s feeling tomorrow morning. He probably will have a time limit on his minutes, but we haven’t worked that out yet.”

Curry participated in a 3-on-3 scrimmage Thursday, along with partaking in practice, which primarily featured 5-on-5 drills. And instead of watching the games from the locker room, Curry has watched the past three home games while sitting adjacent to the Warriors’ bench. His teammates told ESPN they viewed that as a sign that he was close. Kerr said not only is Curry close, but he’s eager as well.

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.
