Why can’t the Warriors All-Star wait one more game?
Grappling with some very unfortunately-timed injury absences, your Los Angeles Lakers are hoping for as much injury misfortunate for their opponents as possible over the next few weeks.
Unfortunately, one very important piece is set to return to his Golden State Warriors just in time to face off against the Lakers Sunday: All-Star point guard Stephen Curry, the 2022 NBA Finals MVP.
Chris Haynes of Bleacher Report reveals that Curry is targeting a comeback on Sunday. If this transpires, the 6’3″ future Hall of Famer will have missed 11 straight Warriors games.
Couldn’t the Baby-Faced Assassin just take a bit more time before suiting up again? What’s the rush? What’s one game?
For the Lakers, you see, are quite banged-up.
On Sunday, LA will be without at least its best player, All-Star forward LeBron James, who of course memorably battled Curry’s Warriors while on the Cleveland Cavaliers across four straight NBA Finals.
Starting point guard D’Angelo Russell, already ruled out for tomorrow’s game against his last club, the Minnesota Timberwolves, may return in time to face off against his club before his last club, Golden State. Starting center Anthony Davis and critical reserve point guard Schröder are merely probable to play tomorrow, so there’s no guarantee that either will be available Sunday.
