Warriors have officially ruled Stephen Curry out for tonight’s game against the host Lakers.
This will be the second consecutive game Curry has missed due to the mild concussion he sustained Monday in Utah.
Curry participated in non-contact drills on Thursday. He took part in shootaround Friday morning. But Curry still hasn’t passed (or even taken) the final test. Before being cleared to play, he needs to participate in full-contact activity and emerge symptom free.
That Curry still hasn’t participated in contact activity could be a sign he still has symptoms from he non-contact work he’s done. Or, perhaps, the Warriors — who would have to craft a situation for Curry since everything has been light since Wednesday — don’t want to force it to get Curry back on the court.
If that is the case, Curry could feasibly miss Saturday’s home game against Portland, too.
There still won’t be a traditional opportunity for Curry to get some contact activity in. No shootaround is scheduled for Saturday, so the Warriors would have to manufacture an opportunity for Curry to be tested before the game.
If not, the Warriors’ next practice won’t be until Monday, as players usually get a day off after back-to-back sets.
