With the Warriors on the verge of advancing to the Western Conference semifinals, superstar point guard Stephen Curry reportedly isn’t expected to return to the floor anytime soon.

According to Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic, Curry “is still not close to playing.” The five-time All-Star is recovering from a Grade 2 MCL sprain which has kept him out since March 23. Here's the full scoop from Thompson:

"According to multiple sources, Curry is still not close to playing. Despite video of him doing work on the court, which has fans salivating about his return, he isn't in the final stages of his rehabilitation. He will be evaluated again on Friday. He is on schedule but not on pace to beat the announced timelines. The working parameters have been 4 to 6 weeks since JaVale McGee crashed into Curry's left knee."

The Warriors and the Pelicans both are one win shy of a potential second-round matchup which can start as early as April 28.
