Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said Saturday that injured guard Stephen Curry has been cleared for contact.
In January, The Athletic's Marcus Thompson II reported Curry was targeting a return in Golden State's home game against the Washington Wizards on March 1.
Curry is one of the NBA's biggest stars as a two-time NBA MVP, three-time NBA champion, one-time NBA scoring champion and six-time All-Star.
His injury is just one part of what has been a nightmarish season for Golden State.
Assuming Curry and Thompson are healthy, the Warriors will have a core of Curry, Thompson, Wiggins, Draymond Green and one of the top picks in the 2020 NBA draft.
