Curry missed the entire first round of the National Basketball Association playoffs as well as Game 1 of the Warriors' current series due to the injury, which he suffered in late March against the Atlanta Hawks.

While Anthony Davis and the starters will expect a better performance from themselves tonight in Oakland, the production and play of the bench will also be key in keeping the game close or helping maintain the pace at which the Pelicans want to play. Hosts Harris Rubenstein and Tom Downey break down all of the latest news and rumors on NBA Weekly! Warriors coach Steve Kerr has not divulged if Curry will start in Game 2, but he said after Monday's practice that he does not have a minutes restriction.

The Golden State Warriors didn't need Stephen Curry in order to dominate Game 1 of their second-round series against the New Orleans Pelicans. One way the Pelicans will work to find Davis easier looks is by finding him in transition and forcing Looney and Green to keep up with him in a footrace. I talked to him afterward and he came out well. Luckily, none of those possessions resulted in points for Davis according to Second Spectrum, though Thompson was nearby on two of Davis' baskets. "We're going to put him on people that are going to be in the middle of the action and probably not guys who are spotting up and shooting so that he can make an impact".

It isn't yet clear how many minutes Curry will play.

It is important that Curry returns as soon as possible so he can get back into the swing of things before the western conference finals. "Feeling good today. Went through the whole practice".

He wasn't rusty after a previous 26-day layoff on December 30.

"We're very confident. It's one game". That night, he scored 38 points at home against the Memphis Grizzlies and shot 10 of 13 from behind the 3-point line.

The two-time MVP sprained his right ankle after inadvertently stepping on E'Twaun Moore's foot. I'm not one of those players, just being honest. "To have Steph back out there, it definitely will give us a boost". Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green all stood out in the win.
