Steph Curry did not participate in three-on-three drills or scrimmage with the Golden State Warriors on Thursday, and coach Steve Kerr deemed the reigning NBA MVP unlikely to play in Game 3 of the second-round playoff series against the Trail Blazers on Saturday in Portland, Ore.
Curry was present for the practice session but did not appear to participate in any segment of the workout, shooting from a stationary position and giving no indication he was ready to test his ailing knee.
Diagnosed with a sprained knee ligament on April 24, Curry sat out the final two games of the first-round series against the Houston Rockets and missed the two Warriors wins over the Trail Blazers in Oakland, Calif.
With three full days between Games 2 and 3, Kerr did not rule Curry out entirely but continues to give the company line for a status report of "doubtful."
"Everything has gone very smoothly. He hasn't had any setbacks," Kerr said.
The Warriors' initial timetable for Curry was to merely re-evaluate his status on May 9, two weeks from the date that general manager Bob Myers confirmed the severity of Curry's injury.
