Curry returns to practice, still unlikely to play Game 3

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Golden State superstar Stephen Curry zipped around the court bouncing from spot to spot during his typical extensive post-practice shooting routine, driving to the basket past his regular practice coach Bruce Fraser.

Curry looked much like his healthy self except for a brace covering his injured right knee.

He returned to practice Friday to test his sprained knee and was strong in his lateral movement though the team didn't scrimmage at all. And the Warriors still considered him doubtful to play in Saturday's Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinals at Portland.

Coach Steve Kerr reiterated that Curry was unlikely to play despite going through part of practice. While ESPN reported from a Kerr radio interview earlier in the day that Curry had been formally ruled out, Kerr said he should have been clearer that he meant ''probably'' out.
