Curry aims to return Friday vs. Hawks

Draymond Green, who left Monday's game with a pelvic contusion, is not expected to miss any additional time.

The Warriors are 13-8 when Curry has been sidelined this season, compared to 40-10 when he's in the lineup.

Blake said that "it's a kind of punishment" and made it clear that he would favour players being protected in these kind of situations. "But I don't think so".

The attrition in Golden State continues.

Curry has had a history of ankle injuries in recent seasons and the Warriors were taking a cautious approach in order to avoid a setback especially with the post-season just around the corner. The last three were less out of medical necessity than an abundance of caution.

However, recent reports seem to indicate that the Warriors aren't likely to be quite as banged-up when the Jazz come to town after all.

When Curry returns, that Warriors offense will be immediately better even without the other stars that usually surround him. Golden State is 2-4 in his absence.

If he is able to meet his goal and play against the Hawks on Friday, it will be interesting to see how he looks in that contest as a potential precursor for his performance against the Jazz. If Curry is not ready for the Hawks game, the Warriors also host the surging Utah Jazz on Sunday afternoon as well as the Indiana Pacers a week from tonight on Tuesday night.

Every game and every win is vital for the Jazz as they seek to earn the highest possible playoff spot.

Golden State has a three-day break between Monday's loss in San Antonio and their next game on Friday, that will feature two practices and a shoot around.
