So when he suffered a shoulder injury on December 14th and was forced to miss time, their outlook became bleak.
But, the rest of the team has stepped up in his absence.
Curry missed the last 11 games, and the Warriors went 6-5 during that time.
But the time has come for the two-time MVP to return to the floor.
Curry is probable to play in tonight’s game against the Phoenix Suns.

After suffering back-to-back home losses, this is one the Warriors need to win before heading on the road.
It remains to be seen what minutes restriction Curry will play with.
But, just having him on the floor is a boost for the whole team.
He is the longest-tenured Warriors player, and he will be able to make up for some of their offensive deficiencies.
With a record of 20-20 on the season, the Warriors have to go on a winning streak.
After Tuesday’s game, Golden State heads to the road where they have been terrible this season.
Their road record on the season is 3-16, and that is unlike the Warriors of years past.
They have always prided themselves on winning road games, especially in the playoffs.
So, to go on a winning streak and start climbing the standings they must win some games on the road.
Overall, the health of Curry and the rest of this Warriors roster is crucial in their chase for another championship.
Their starting five has not played together since December 3rd, and they should all be back tonight.
Curry returning will make a major impact on the Warriors, and they should get back on track soon.
