The Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is set to be re-evaluated on Saturday for his left shoulder subluxation. The Warriors are hoping that he will be able to return to action next Friday as the team gears up to face the San Antonio Spurs as part of a six-game road trip.

“He’s working out on the court, and the two-week mark to re-evaluate him this weekend,” Warriors general manager Bob Myers confirmed. “There have been no setbacks, so (Friday) would be a hope. That’s what we would be shooting for, something in that range when he could be back. He’s been, not contact, but out there doing all this stuff. He looks like the same guy. He’s got a sleeve on his shoulder and arm.”

Curry injured his shoulder during the Warriors’ 119-125 loss to the Indiana Pacers on December 14 when he bumped into the Pacers’ Jalen Smith in the third quarter.

Wednesday night’s 122-119 loss to the Detroit Pistons sees the Warriors go 6-5 without their star point guard. The team now finds itself within reach of a playoff spot. Ranked ninth in the Western Conference, the Warriors are tied with the eight-placed Phoenix Suns and are a game behind the sixth-placed Los Angeles Clippers.
