Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry will have his lower left leg injury re-evaluated on March 1, the team announced Wednesday.
That means Curry, who has missed five games already with the injury, will sit out at least another four: games against the Lakers, Rockets, Timberwolves and Trail Blazers. The lone road game in those four is Thursday’s against Los Angeles.
In its statement, the team said Curry is making “good progress” and has been cleared to engage in individual on-court activities. The 34-year-old was seen on the practice court at UCLA on Tuesday getting up shots and moving around well.
Curry suffered partial tears to his superior tibiofibular ligaments and interosseous membrane and a contusion to his left lower leg late in the third quarter of the Warriors’ 119-113 win over Dallas on Feb. 4.
The Warriors are 2-3 without Curry as he recovers from this latest injury and are 9-11 overall this season when he doesn’t play.
Curry was named an All-Star starter in the Western Conference for the ninth time in his career but didn’t play in last weekend’s exhibition. He’s averaging 29.4 points, 6.3 rebounds and 6.4 assists while shooting 49.5% from the field and 42.7% from 3-point range.
