OAKLAND, Calif. – Stephen Curry says his strained right quadriceps is slowly getting better and he is expected to start for the Golden State Warriors against the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night.
Curry only participated in the walkthrough portion of Monday's practice. He says the pain in his leg is tolerable and he believes he can continue to play while the muscle heals without doing further damage.
The All-Star point guard injured his quad during Golden State's win at Boston on Wednesday and began to feel pain again during Friday's victory over Atlanta. An MRI on Saturday revealed the strain.
Curry shook off the pain and played more than expected Sunday night, when he had 18 points and nine assists in 30 minutes in the Warriors' 113-107 win over Phoenix.
