“We’re excited about his progress,” Kerr said. “Hopefully it continues the next few days.” Kerr had previously said that Green would need to complete a full practice before returning. He softened that stance on Wednesday, mindful that he often holds optional practices so he can rest his stars and veteran players. The Warriors are currently scheduled to practice on Thursday in Milwaukee. “He’s getting live action now. He’ll probably get some live action tomorrow,” Kerr said. “We may not have a heavy practice. But he could get some scrimmaging in with the other guys and coaches.”

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green left midway through the second quarter of Monday’s 89-75 loss to the San Antonio Spurs with a pelvic contusion that he said is “not serious.” The injury occurred when Green took an inadvertent knee below the belt from Spurs guard Danny Green. “It’ll be fine,” the forward told reporters after the game. “I think it’s just kind of something that’s kind of at the peak right now, but it’s calmed down a little bit since it happened. So, it’s not that serious.”

He shoots more than anyone, and with the exception of the ridiculous Kyle Korver, he sinks them at a higher rate. No player in the history of the NBA has combined range, volume and efficiency from downtown as well as Curry, and over the course of the Warriors’ dynasty, he has changed the way the entire league looks at 3-point scoring. Curry’s jumper is so lethal that he has become the most efficient volume scorer on the planet — of the league’s top 20 scorers, nobody has a higher TS% than Curry.
