Golden State is getting the boost it needs.
Warriors forward Draymond Green (toe) and guard Shaun Livingston (foot) are expected to get back on the court this week after recovering from their respective injuries.
However, point guard Stephen Curry (groin) will remain sidelined as he’s not expected to play Monday against the Clippers or Tuesday against the Hawks.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr specified after Monday’s shootaround that it’s uncertain when Curry will be healthy enough to make his return.
“He’s doing OK,” Kerr said, via ESPN. “It’s a tricky injury. He’s never had a groin injury before, so as I said the other day, the MRI was encouraging. There didn’t appear to be anything dramatic in there, but the MRI doesn’t always tell the story and you really have to go on symptoms.
“He won’t play tonight or tomorrow and we’re still going to evaluate daily and see where it all goes, but it’s frustrating for him. He’s had such a great start to the year. But again, it’s a new injury for him and we’ve got to make sure he’s fully healthy before we put him back out there.”
Curry was initially injured in Thursday’s loss to the Bucks and sat out the team’s win Saturday over the Nets. He leads Golden State in scoring, averaging 29.5 points per game this season.
Meanwhile, Green is averaging 7.6 points, 7.2 rebounds and 7.9 assists per game. Livingston is averaging 5.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists.
