OAKLAND Point guard Stephen Curry is going to try to give it a go tonight when the Warriors take on the Indiana Pacers at Oracle Arena.
"Hopefully I can go," Curry said when asked at Friday shootaround if he would play. "I still have a couple more hurdles to clear before I do that."
Curry hasnt played since Jan. 4, when he sprained his right ankle during the second half of a game against the Spurs in San Antonio. It was the third time this season Curry tweaked the ankle.
Last Saturday, Curry expressed a desire to return to the Warriors for a Jan. 17, game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, but that idea was shelved after the ankle didnt respond in the day leading up to the game as Curry had hoped.
Curry has sprained the right ankle seven times in the past 16 months. In 2010-11, Curry missed eight games with a sprained ankle, including a six-game stretch in December.
On Tuesday morning, the Lakers made sweeping changes to their front office.
Magic Johnson is now the president of basketball operations and both general manager Mitch Kupchak and executive VP of basketball operations Jim Buss were fired.
Los Angeles -- looking to hire a new GM -- originally targeted Warriors GM Bob Myers, according to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski.
But as Wojnarowski reports: "After Myers signed a recent contract extension, it became clear to Lakers brass that it would be unable to lure Myers."
In September, the Warriors promoted Myers from general manager to president of basketball operations/general manager.
Myers was named the NBA Executive of the Year following the 2014-15 season.
The Warriors recalled guard Brianté Weber from the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA Development League, the team announced today.
Weber was assigned to Santa Cruz to allow him to participate in the 2017 NBA D-League All-Star Game on Saturday in New Orleans, where he tallied four points, two assists and two steals in 16 minutes for the West squad.
Weber, who signed his second 10-day contract with the Warriors on Feb. 14, has appeared in five games with Golden State this season, averaging 1.6 points and 1.0 assist in 8.2 minutes.
Prior to joining Golden State, the 6’2”, 165-pound guard appeared in 31 games (all starts) this season with the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the NBA D-League, averaging 16.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 7.4 assists and 3.26 steals in 36.8 minutes and garnering NBA D-League Player of the Month honors in January.
