Curry missed 11 games with that ankle injury, but fortunately the Warriors were able to go 9-2 with Steph on the bench as they relied on their other MVP Kevin Durant.
But Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Wednesday that Curry "did look good" as he participated in a full practice on Thursday. However, reporters had another thing to mention to Thompson after the game as the Warriors' sharpshooter failed to do something he did in his 95 previous games: make a 3-pointer.
Kidd's comments proved prophetic, as the NBA-best Warriors managed to edge the Bucks 108-94 at the Bradley Center behind strong efforts from Durant, Green and Thompson.
Curry has missed the past two games.
Bucks: Three-point shooting defense has improved of late after holding four of the previous five opponents to 31 percent or less from beyond the arc. "We are making a conscious effort". Durant finished with a game-high 26 points on 12-of-20 shooting. He returned from a one-game break for rest. "I dreamed about this as a kid so it was pretty sweet", he said.
Barring a pregame setback, Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is expected to return from a sprained right ankle Saturday night against the Raptors.
