Golden State Warriors star guard Stephen Curry is finally set to make his return on Thursday for the game against Toronto Raptors. The Warriors took to Twitter to announce their star man’s return.
Curry, 31, suffered a hand injury in October last year and has been out of action since then. He was hoping to return for the game against Washington Wizards but played in the G league instead.
After missing over four months of action and the Warriors’ last 58 games, Curry is finally set to make his return.

Steve Kerr feels Curry will come out rejuvenated
Stephen Curry and the Warriors have played in the NBA Finals in each of the last five seasons. Klay Thompson also featured and played an important role in those five seasons. But both Curry and Thompson suffered major injuries last year.
While Curry has been out of action for over four months, Thompson has been ruled out of the season. Although the injuries were a setback for the Warriors, Steve Kerr saw some positives in it.
He believed it was a much needed break for them after making consecutive finals appearances and they will only be fresh to go when they return.
“I almost look at it — look at LeBron [James] this year,” Kerr told ESPN. “LeBron looks like a different guy than he did a year ago. And eight straight trips to the Finals — just crazy. That’s a feat that people probably don’t talk about enough, to understand the emotional toll that takes. So for our guys, five straight trips to the Finals, just the feeling of being wiped out, Steph and Klay have both gotten to get away, not under ideal circumstances, neither one has been able really to enjoy themselves physically because of their injuries, but just to step away from the fight, I think has been important.
“And I think you’ll see Steph rejuvenated upon his return next week. And then same thing with Klay when he returns next season.”
