Steve Kerr Gives Troubling Update On Steph Curry's Game 1 Status


The Golden State Warriors head into the playoffs as the No. 3 seed in the West, and given their championship pedigree, a reasonable shot at going to the Finals. But if Steph Curry is unavailable, those plans go out the window. Head coach Steve Kerr insists that his superstar's status for Game 1 of the playoffs will go "down to the wire."

Curry is recovering from a sprained foot, and missed the Warriors' last 12 games of the regular season. 

"We'll see how everything goes with Steph (this) week. There is a chance he could be ready for Game 1, there is a chance he might not," Kerr said on Sunday. "It's literally going to be a day-to-day thing as it unfolds this week. We'll know a lot more after the next few days when he's ramping up his work."

This doesn't sound as promising as a week-and-a-half ago, when both Curry and the Warriors "felt confident" that he'd be ready for the playoffs. 

But if he is ready, Kerr isn't worried about how he'll perform. 

"All it takes is one game for Steph to go from injured list to First-Team All-NBA," Kerr rightfully pointed out. 

Curry is expected to increase his workload and practice time as this week unfolds, and will be re-evaluated by the medical staff in the first half of the week to update his status.
