With the first deadline looming to enroll in a health care plan under the federal Affordable Care Act, Kaiser Permanente has enlisted NBA star Stephen Curry to visit Richmond today to remind people to get covered. The Golden State Warriors basketball player will speak at Richmond's Hilltop Mall this evening about the importance of health insurance and a healthy lifestyle as part of a Kaiser campaign to get young adults to purchase health coverage. Curry will also sign autographs, take photos and meet with attendees who bring a canned food donation for the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano. San Jose Mercury-News

With the shot clock and game clock virtually identical in a tie game, Mark Jackson decided not to call a timeout to prevent the Mavericks from making defensive adjustments. Curry dribbled down the court with Jose Calderon guarding him – an ideal situation for Golden State. Andrew Bogut then curiously came up to set a screen with about 10 seconds remaining, allowing Shawn Marion – Dallas’ best perimeter defender – to switch onto Curry. It didn’t matter, as Curry managed to use a quick fake to get Marion up in the air with 3.7 seconds remaining on the clock. Shot. Bang. Game. Except it wasn’t game quite yet. There was still 1.5 seconds left on the clock to give the Mavericks one last chance for a desperation shot. Curry, however, assumed that Dallas still had a timeout left. So he turned and celebrated with Nemanja Nedovic, who came onto the court to give Curry a chest bump. SheridanHoops

Bazemore violated the shower code, which is that if all the showers are occupied when a veteran enters, he must give his up regardless of where he is in his hygiene routine. (Apparently Stephen Curry entered and Bazemore said something to the effect of, “Just give me a minute.”) Ezeli’s indiscretion was helping himself to a plate of food on the team plane ahead of the veterans. “We didn’t do it just because they were rookies,” Lee said. “There was cause and effect.” Bleacher Report

Point guard Stephen Curry participated in noncontact drills in the Warriors' light practice at UCLA on Thursday. So the Golden State star, who missed the home loss to Memphis the day before, is one step closer to returning from a mild concussion. If all goes well, Curry could be in the lineup Friday night when the Los Angeles Lakers host the Warriors. Oakland Tribune

Point guard Stephen Curry participated in non-contact drills in the Warriors’ light practice at UCLA on Thursday, presumably meaning his headache has dissipated. Curry missed Wednesday’s loss to visiting Memphis because of a mild concussion, sustained Monday at Utah. His only symptom, according to the Warriors, was a headache. If he is symptom free following the work he did today, he can advance to the next step in the concussion protocol: contact practice. Contra Costa Times
