Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry Returns to Practice

The Golden State Warriors' iconic superstar crossed an important threshold for his eventual return. Per NBC Sports Bay Area reporter Dalton Johnson, Stephen Curry was back at practice on Tuesday for some light, non-contact work. Curry, who still has no timetable for a return to game action, has been unavailable since injuring his leg in a February 4th 119-113 win over the Dallas Mavericks. He has missed 20 out of a possible 58 games this season but has been his typically electric self when on the court, averaging 29.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 6.4 assists per game with a deadly .665 true shooting percentage.

The Warriors remain in the playoff hunt at 29-29, but they'll need a strong finish to the season to pull themselves out of the play-in tournament. They currently sit ninth in the Western Conference but are only two games behind the sixth seed, the 31-29 Dallas Mavericks. If Curry can come back hot, the Warriors are one run away from lifting themselves back into contender status.

The Warriors' first game following the All-Star break is Thursday against the Los Angeles Lakers.
