Stephen Curry says his strained right quadriceps is slowly getting better and he is planning to start for the Golden State Warriors against the Dallas Mavericks tonight.
Curry only participated in the walkthrough portion of Monday’s practice. He said the pain in his leg is tolerable and believes he can continue to play through it while the muscle heals.
“It’s just a matter of making sure it doesn’t get worse,” Curry said.
Warriors coach Mark Jackson said there’s no strict limit on Curry’s minutes. He said he will communicate with Curry during games to determine when — and how much — the point guard plays.
