NBA – Curry rested for Game One, but ‘very likely’ for Game Two


April 28 (Reuters) – Golden State Warriors sharpshooter Stephen Curry will not return to action for his team’s second round playoff opener against New Orleans, but is “very likely” to play in Game Two, coach Steve Kerr revealed before tip-off on Saturday.

Curry has not played since March 23 due to his sprained left knee but the twice MVP has been back on the practice court and recently completed his first full 5-on-5 scrimmage.

The defending champion Warriors defeated San Antonio 4-1 in the best-of-seven first round series without him but the team will be anxious to welcome him back for the Pelicans series.

Golden State, who are seeking their third NBA title in four years, host Game Two on Tuesday.
