Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is available to return to action Friday against the Atlanta Hawks, having been out of action since re-injuring a sprained ankle on March 8.

Curry, making a comeback from a sprained right ankle that forced him to miss the previous six games, got rolled up on by falling teammate JaVale McGee in a third-quarter collision near the Atlanta basket.

In obvious pain, Curry limped off did not return to the court for the fourth quarter. This season, Curry is averaging 26.3 points, 6.2 assists and 5.1 rebounds per game for the Warriors (53-18). Unfortunately, he hurt his left knee.

The game was Curry's first after missing six games due to an ankle injury.

He appeared to have fully recovered from that injury, scoring 29 points in 25 minutes against the Hawks before McGee fell back onto his left leg in his latest mishap.

"The main sentiment, though, is horror and sadness for the family involved and not much else to say", Kerr said.

The White House recently barred USA banks from purchasing new Venezuelan debt, one of the biggest blows to Venezuela's economy. On Monday, Trump signed an order blocking any US transactions in the petro , the White House announced.

Then the same horrifying image that has haunted the Warriors resurfaced: Curry limping off the floor. "I have seen Steph come back from injury and nothing would surprise me". Depending on the grade of the injury, Curry could be out for 1-to-4 weeks, with the playoffs starting in three. "So we'll see what happens and we'll keep our fingers crossed".

"I think I'm going to stay in Oakland", Kerr said.

Quinn Cook added 13 points and Jordan Bell 12 for the Warriors, who improved to 24-3 in games against Eastern Conference teams this season.

"We've been dealing with these issues for hundreds of years and so they continue".

The good sport that Curry is, he took the loss and became a member of Big Blue Nation for a day.
