Warriors medical staff delivers good news about Stephen Curry after Oakland car accident

OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- Stephen Curry could be practicing with the team again as early as next week, the Warriors' medical staff said Saturday.

Curry was re-evaluated Saturday morning after missing the last eight games with a strained left groin. Golden State lost five of those eight games.

After today's inspection, the consensus is he is making "very good progress" with his rehabilitation program.

"He will begin to intensify his on-court workouts and, if he continues to progress at the level demonstrated in recent days, it is expected that Curry will begin to practice with the team next week," the team said in a press release.

This news comes as a major relief not just because of the team's recent struggles, but because Curry was involved in a multi-car accident Friday in Oakland.

They play the Sacramento Kings tonight at 5:30 p.m.
