Curry broke his left hand in October of 2019 in a regular season match-up with the Phoenix Suns. After surgery, he was ruled out for 3 months to make a full recovery.
The 31-year-old shooter has been targeting March 1 as his return date for about a month now, as he slowly made progress in his recovery.
He was cleared for non-contact drills earlier in the month and last week, he was cleared for contact in Warriors practices.
The 6-time all-star was able to play only 4 games in the regular season, averaing 23.5 PPG, 5 RPG, and 6.5 APG.
With multiple injuries this year to key players, Golden State has been dead last in the Western Conference. They have a 12-46 record so far.
