OKLAHOMA CITY – Stephen Curry’s right elbow looks so much better than it did two days ago that the MVP wants to move past the subject, as does coach Steve Kerr.
Asked about Curry’s elbow after practice Friday, Kerr was uncharacteristically terse.
“He’s fine,” Kerr told reporters at the team facility in Oakland. “Nothing wrong.”
Curry sustained an elbow contusion in the second quarter of Game 2 diving over courtside seats chasing a loose ball. Though the elbow quickly swelled, Curry remained in the game and scored 17 points in the third quarter, leading the Warriors to victory over Oklahoma City.
The possibility of draining the elbow of fluid has not been discussed, according to Kerr, who added that the swelling appears reduced.
Wearing a compression sleeve as a preventative measure, Curry was a full participant in practice and said he felt no ill effects.
“It’s fine,” he said. “The swelling went down, so no worries. It just looks ugly and it’s a little uncomfortable. That’s it.”
