Stephen Curry upgraded from doubtful to questionable for Game 4

May 9, 2016

One day after Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr said star point guard Stephen Curry was “doubtful” for Monday night’s playoff game against Portland, Kerr updated that status to questionable after Monday’s shootaround.

Twenty-four hours earlier, Kerr sounded far less optimistic that Curry would play in Game 4 with the sprained MCL that has held him out since an April 24 first-round game against the Rockets.

"I would just say he's doubtful for tomorrow, but slowly and surely making progress," Kerr told reporters Sunday. "His conditioning seemed to be an issue, but hopefully he can get more and more work, and we'll see how he comes up tomorrow in terms of a good night's sleep coming off a workout."

Curry, who reportedly will win his second straight MVP award later this week, averaged a career-high 30.1 points in leading the Warriors to an NBA-record 73 regular-season wins but has been limited to just two postseason games by the knee injury and an earlier sprained ankle.


The Warriors lead the Trail Blazers, 2-1, in a best-of-seven series that resumes in Portland Monday night.
