He has missed five games for the Warriors since then, with the team winning just twice in his absence.

According to ESPN's Chris Haynes, Curry intends to play on Friday unless there are any unforeseen setbacks before the home fixture against the Hawks. But the Warriors, looking ahead to the playoffs and seeing diminished value in the remaining regular-season games, opted to continue rehabilitation in hopes of maximizing support for the area around his ankle.

Curry injured his ankle on March 8 and has missed six games for the team.

We also go over the top Warriors news of the day including the hopeful return of Steph Curry during Friday's game against the Atlanta Hawks.

Tomb Raider was based off the successful 2013 video game, a reboot of its own that looked to alter the titular character's origin. The film based on the popular novel was right around expectations and I'm predicting a $30-$40 million domestic gross.

To compound their health issues, Draymond Green was only able to play 12 minutes in the defeat as he suffered a pelvic injury.

While the Warriors can use these skeleton-crew games as an excuse to give reserves minutes and rest their core four for a playoff run that could be a bit more hard than last year's historic march, the team could understandably be anxious to see Curry get back to action before the playoffs. He did not travel with the club for its three road contests.

Even though it wasn't considered to be serious, the defending champions opted to take a cautious approach with him and chose to shut him down for over a week in order to get regular treatment.

The Warriors are 13-8 without Curry in the lineup, but are a mammoth 40-10 with their star point guard in the team. Even with the addition of Durant, Golden State has always been at its most effective when defenses are bending as far as they can to prevent Curry from getting open looks from 3-point range.
