Curry Says Elbow Is "Fine" Heading Into Game 3
By Randy Renner, Senior Writer
Thunder center Steven Adams wasn’t the only player who got some bumps and bruises in Game 2, Warriors superstar Steph Curry did too when he went diving into the seats for a loose ball and banged his right elbow.
And like Adams told reporters yesterday about his thumb and his groin area, Curry too said he was fine heading towards Sunday night’s Game 3.
“The swelling went down so no worries,” Curry told reporters after the Warriors’ Friday practice.
“It’s sore just because of the impact but it doesn’t affect the range of motion, so I can shoot and dribble and do all I need to do. It’s uncomfortable but it’s not necessarily painful.”
Even so Curry was wearing a compression sleeve over the elbow during Friday’s practice.
“Just compression, just to make sure I can get shots up and not have any swelling.”
Curry is also still battling some pain in his right knee from the sprain he suffered in the first round of the playoffs.
“I’m doing all right,” he said when asked about his overall health. “It’s nothing really to worry about, but it is nice to have three days in between (games) to get your body right. But such is playoff basketball, you’ve got to be ready for anything.”
The Thunder are practicing today and we’ll update what they have to say early this afternoon. The Warriors are flying in today and are scheduled to practice late this afternoon at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
