Golden State star Stephen Curry expects to return from an MCL sprain on his left knee during the Western Conference semifinals if the defending champions advance to the next round, according to Yahoo! Sports.

 

Curry has a three-week evaluation scheduled for Saturday the start of the playoffs on his left knee. However, he's shooting for the second round of the NBA playoffs as a possible return window, according to league sources.

I havent had any setbacks; thats the positive. Every day theres been something good advancing the rehab progress. Im looking forward to hopefully making more progress as we look forward to the playoffs.

Curry recently missed six games due to an ankle sprain when he returned on March 23 against Atlanta, before teammate JaVale McGee came down on his left leg during the game.

 

In 51 regular-season games, Curry averaged 26.4 points on 49.5 percent shooting (including 42.3 percent from three-point range), 6.1 assists, and 5.1 rebounds.

 

No. 2 seed Golden State kick off their postseason against the No. 7 San Antonio Spurs. Golden State, of course, has All-Stars Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green healthy and ready to go.
