They have gone 2-4 in this latest stretch without the two-time MVP, but look set to have him back soon.
Curry has appeared in just 50 games for the Warriors this season and will end up appearing in the second-fewest games of his career by the time the regular season winds down.
Both Durant (ribs) and Thompson (hand) are expected to miss several weeks with their respective injuries, but there is better news regarding Curry, who has been out for nearly two weeks with another right ankle sprain.
"Warriors guard Stephen Curry, who tweaked his right ankle on February 8th against the San Antonio Spurs and has missed the last six games, was examined by the team's medical staff today", said a statement from the 2017 National Basketball Association champions on Tuesday. This is welcome news for Golden State with so many other key players out. The San Antonio Spurs - the opponent on March 19, 2016, that stopped the Dubs from hitting 80 - held them to a season-low 75 on Monday night.

Curry, however, was not the only injury concern for coach Steve Kerr going into the game against the Hawks. He did not travel with the club for its three road contests. "The defending champs have been ultra-cautious in their handling of Curry".
Curry was physically able to play - and actually pushed to return - last weekend, according to league sources.
The Warriors are 13-8 without Curry in the lineup, but are a mammoth 40-10 with their star point guard in the team. He is averaging 26.3 points, 6.2 assists and 5.1 rebounds so far this season.
Golden State is 53-18, 3½ games back of the Houston Rockets for the top spot in the Western Conference standings.
