The defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors have struggled with injuries all season.
Which in large part, is why they are 32-30 on the year.
But, even with that record, they rank fifth in the current Western Conference standings.
Golden State overcame it’s largest deficit of the season to win on Tuesday night.
They trailed by 23 points in the first half before coming back to win the game by 18.
It appears like the Warriors are starting to turn the corner, and reinforcements are on the way.
Superstar point guard Stephen Curry was re-evaluated today and he is making good progress from his knee injury according to the Warriors’ recent press release.

After missing the last nine games, and 24 for the season, Golden State needs Curry back on the floor.
If he can stay healthy the rest of the way, the Warriors still have a chance to repeat.
ESPN Adrian Wojnarowski seems to believe Curry could take the floor next week.
ESPN Sources: There’s optimism Golden State’s Steph Curry (left lower leg) will return sometime on next week’s three-game road trip, which begins Sunday vs. Lakers. Warriors play Thunder on Tuesday and Grizzlies on Thursday. Curry has been out since suffering injury on Feb. 4.

It would be nice for him to return with about a month left before the playoffs.
So he could help the Warriors make a push for the best playoff spot possible.
Other than Curry, the Warriors have been without Andrew Wiggins and Gary Payton II.
Both players returning in time for the playoffs would be a big boost to the Warriors’ chances.
Keep an eye on a healthy Warriors team coming out of the West.
They are battle-tested, and no one is going to want to face them come playoff time.NEXT: Steve Kerr Gives An Encouraging Update On Warriors Team Chemistry
