The Golden State Warriors have been without their biggest star for a few weeks now and are eager to get him back on the court.
Stephen Curry has been recovering from a lower leg injury since the beginning of February when he hurt himself during a game against the Dallas Mavericks.
Since then, the team hasn’t been entirely clear about his proposed return date.
Golden State Warriors say Stephen Curry is improving and will be re-evaluated in one week.

On Wednesday, the Warriors announced that Curry is “improving” and will be re-evaluated in one week.
There was hope that Curry could bounce back into the lineup right after the All-Star break but that clearly will not happen and Golden State will be without Chef Curry for at least one more week.
Life without Curry hasn’t been a breeze for the reigning champions.
Since losing him on February 6, the Warriors have gone 1-4 against teams like the Portland Trail Blazers, Los Angeles Lakers, and Los Angeles Clippers.
That means they are still the ninth team in the West and are at an even .500 record with 29-29.
There is no doubt that Curry is the team’s most explosive and essential star: he is averaging 29.4 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 6.4 assists a game this year.
He is not only a huge producer of points but he is also the man who leads the team’s tempo and runs nearly every play during games.
Without Curry, the team is lacking a lot of its identity.
The team will be back on the court Thursday night, taking on the Lakers yet again.
Following that, they will square off against the Houston Rockets, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Trail Blazers before they get another evaluation of Curry next week.NEXT: Warriors Announce An Official Injury Update On Steph Curry
