That's welcome news for the National Basketball Association champions, who have gone 2-4 without Curry.

He is due to have the right ankle assessed again on Tuesday, the report says, leaving the two-time MVP with a couple of full days training before the game at the Oracle Arena.

News surfaced this morning that the Golden State Warriors were reportedly hoping to have All-Star point guard Stephen Curry available to return from injury on Friday night as the team hosts the Atlanta Hawks.

The attrition in Golden State continues.

Though the Warriors won the game in which Curry was hurt, 110-107 over the Spurs on March 8, they have since lost four of six, including 89-75 on Monday in San Antonio. Klay Thompson (hand) and Kevin Durant (ribs) are each expected to miss a little more time, sources tell Haynes and Shelburne.

Curry, however, was not the only injury concern for coach Steve Kerr going into the game against the Hawks. He has instead remained in the Bay Area with the team's head performance therapist, Chelsea Lane, to receive around-the-clock treatment.

With the postseason, the defending champions are being cautious with Curry. With playoff season approaching, the Warriors will lean on a healthy Curry to attempt a third title in four years. Even with the addition of Durant, Golden State has always been at its most effective when defenses are bending as far as they can to prevent Curry from getting open looks from 3-point range. Curry has averaged 26.3 points, 5.1 rebounds, 6.2 assists, 1.6 steals and 4.2 three-pointers per game on 49 percent shooting from the field and 42.4 percent shooting from beyond the arc.
