Steph Curry has dealt with major injury problems during the 2022-23 season. The Golden State Warriors guard has missed 14 games so far, including 11 straight games from Dec. 16, 2022 to Jan. 7, 2023.
After playing eight straight games at home, the Warriors began their five-game road trip against the San Antonio Spurs at the Alamodome. The second game of the road trip is against the Bulls in Chicago on Sunday afternoon.
Curry, who’s played the last two games, is active for the game against the Bulls. While his status may change by the time the game starts, he will most likely suit up and start for the Warriors.
Steph Curry will likely play against Chicago Bulls
After playing only five games during the 2019-2020 season, Curry hasn’t been able to stay healthy for an entire season. While the point guard missed only nine games after returning to action, the Warriors were unable to count on him in 18 games of the 2021-22 season.
The four-time NBA champion missed a couple of games in the current season due to an elbow injury, while he missed one game while dealing with ankle problems. Unfortunately, Curry has also had issues with his shoulder, causing him to miss 11 straight games.
Fortunately for the Warriors, it appears that the two-time MVP is healthy and ready to dominate the court once again. While he may not be back at 100%, he will likely play at least 30 minutes against the Chicago Bulls.
