Though he was suddenly pulled from their game on Saturday due to an illness, Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry should return to the court on Tuesday night.

Curry practiced normally on Monday, and — barring any last minute setback — should start Tuesday when the Warrios take on the Knicks at Madison Square Garden.

“He’s feeling better today,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said, via ESPN. “He went through practice, participated fully, so we anticipate he’ll play [Tuesday].”

Steph Curry suddenly pulled from game vs. Hornets

Curry went through warmups normally on Saturday night before the Warriors’ 102-100 loss to the Charlotte Hornets at the Spectrum Center, but was suddenly seen walking off the court slowly with a staff member just before tip.

Curry was quickly ruled out of the game because he was “not feeling well.” The illness was unrelated to the COVID-19 pandemic, and Curry was not placed in the NBA’s health and safety protocol. It’s unclear specifically why Curry was pulled.

“He was going through his usual warm up routine and just did not feel well at all,” Kerr said after the game. “So he came back in, saw the Charlotte team doctor, went out, tried to warm up and just wasn’t feeling good. So we made the decision … to not play him. We’ll see how he’s doing tomorrow.”

Curry, 32, has averaged 29.9 points and 6.2 assists per game so far this season while shooting nearly 50 percent from the field.
