It’s as simple as that.
They’ve managed to put together a nice run in Steph’s absence, but they need their leader and best player running and gunning if they want to get back to the top of the West.
Fortunately for them, it seems like it won’t be long before the reigning Finals MVP is back on the floor:
“Everything’s headed in the right direction in terms of getting back, hopefully, next week,” Curry told the Warriors broadcast during the loss to the Pistons. “You know, weird injury for me in terms of something I haven’t had before and just getting through that initial healing process. Been on the court the past couple of days, really trying to test it, see where I am, working on my strength, endurance with my shoulder, and all that. The body feels good — I don’t think I’ve lost anything there, so I’m excited to get back out there and join my guys.”
Curry has missed several weeks with a shoulder injury, putting even more pressure on Steve Kerr after a slow start to the season.
At least the extended opportunities and touches have done wonders for Klay Thompson, who’s finally going back to his old self after missing two seasons with major injuries.
So, if Klay can keep that pace up once Curry is back on the floor, the Dubs will most definitely have a big shot at going back-to-back again.
