As the Golden State Warriors wrap up their regular season, the status of Stephen Curry for the start of the NBA playoffs is still up in the air as he works his way back from a left foot sprain. “We’ll see how everything goes with Steph next week. There is a chance he could be ready for Game 1, there is a chance he might not,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said ahead of the team’s regular-season finale against the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday night. “It’s literally going to be a day-to-day thing as it unfolds this week. We’ll know a lot more after the next few days when he’s ramping up his work.”

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry walked with a slight limp and with a boot on his left foot as he made his way up to the podium Sunday night. It was the first time he spoke with reporters since spraining a ligament in the foot Wednesday against the Boston Celtics. “It was definitely painful at first. But it’s getting better by the day,” Curry said Sunday. “Trying to assess the recovery in real time, just knowing how much we can push it on a day to day. I’m just trying to stay patient and know that it will continue to get better.”

Golden State Warriors star guard Stephen Curry was ruled out of the second half of Wednesday night’s 110-88 loss to the Boston Celtics due to left foot soreness. He underwent an MRI immediately after the game. Asked about his level of concern surrounding Curry’s foot, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said, “We’ll know after the MRI.” Curry injured his foot at the 4:17 mark of the second quarter when his leg got rolled on by the Celtics’ Marcus Smart as the two wrestled for a loose ball.

Warriors star guard Stephen Curry fell hard on his right hand on a drive to the basket in the first half of Golden State’s 138-96 win over Chicago on Friday and winced in pain for a few minutes but stayed in the game. Curry said after scoring 19 points to help the Warriors to their most lopsided win of the season that he will get his hand looked at by the team’s medical staff, but he indicated he didn’t think it was serious. “Anything that involves the hands, especially the right one, you’re a little concerned,” he said. “But the feeling came back, the strength came back. It hurts, but I’ll be all right.”

Steph Curry is wearing a butt pad and playing quite well in it. Is this butt pad a thing that’s happened a lot and I’m just now hearing about it, or is it a pioneering thing that Steph is doing? Jeff Stotts: There have been other examples of tailbone contusions in the NBA. I was a little surprised, those five games lost are a little outside the norm. Usually those injuries don’t require a lot of time. That being said, they can be very painful. I think we probably have guys coming back wearing those little butt pads on their contusions. We just don’t hear about it. But since it’s Steph and he openly talked about it, I think it’s getting some notoriety. That’s all you can really do for a tailbone. It’s all about padding it up so it doesn’t get aggravated.

Derek Bodner: #sixers afternoon injury report has the following players listed as questionable: – Ben Simmons (illness) – Dwight Howard (left knee soreness) – George Hill (right thumb) – Tobias Harris (right knee soreness) – Seth Curry (left hip flexor tightness Also: – Steph Curry (ankle)

Golden State Warriors star guard Stephen Curry practiced fully on Sunday and will be listed as questionable for Monday’s game against the Chicago Bulls after missing the past week and a half because of a tailbone bruise. “We scrimmaged some just now, and he’s getting some extra work in, so we want to see how he responds to that,” coach Steve Kerr said after Sunday’s practice. “And then it’s a discussion with (Warriors director of sports medicine and performance) Rick (Celebrini) and the training staff. We’ll see where it all goes.”
