Warriors’ Stephen Curry likely to play Game 5

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry has been listed as questionable to play throughout the team’s first-round playoff series against the Denver Nuggets due to a myriad of injuries. Despite ailments surrounding his ankle, hamstring and eye, Curry is expected to suit up for Game 5, coach Marc Jackson told reporters – including Carl Steward of The Mercury News.

"I was just in the lounge with him (at the Warriors' downtown practice facility) and he's doing fine," Jackson said. "We won't be doing much today, but obviously it will be important for him to continue to get treatment, take care of his body and be ready (Tuesday) night because we certainly need him."

Entering Game 4, Curry was dealing with a lingering ankle injurywhich has been hampering the guard throughout the year – that required a pain-killing injection prior to tip off. During the game, he added hamstring and eye issues to his list of ailments. It’s not clear how serious the hamstring injury is, but he did have to exit the game after getting poked in the eye in the fourth quarter. Still, at that point the game was basically put away, and Curry said his vision wasn’t impaired as a result of the poke.

Curry scored 31 points overall – with 22 coming in the third quarter – of Golden State’s Game 4 win over the Nuggets.
