Steph Curry's new low-top Under Armour sneakers will be his kryptonite

Furthermore, Durant has led the league in scoring four times (2010, 2011, 2012, 2014), earned MVP honors in 2014, and most recently, helped guide Golden State to an NBA Championship in 2017, where he was honored as the NBA Finals MVP. That win will give the Warriors' coaching staff a strong reason to provide some motivation for their players to take Atlanta seriously. They do not want to risk a setback, especially with the playoffs just round the corner.

He is set to be re-evaulated in about a week, said Kerr. Two years later, it seems like nothing will change his mind: Not his agent, not the team's front office, not even his tortured ankle, may be able to talk him out of not slipping on his Curry5s for game action. "He's chomping at the bit. We will see how he responds the next couple days before we decide whether he plays or not".

Curry, meanwhile, is not the only injury worry for coach Kerr as he will be without small forward Kevin Durant and shooting guard Klay Thompson for the game against the Hawks on Friday. Thompson, who will have his fractured right thumb re-evaluated Thursday, was a partial participant. Thompson, on the other hand, is further behind in the recovery process with Kerr confirming that he is yet to join full training. "I've had a good two weeks of rehab and kind of taken a patient approach to getting as close to 100 percent as possible, understanding where we're at in the season and the injury that I've had over the course of the last three months".

"I don't expect KD to play this week", Kerr said.

Green suffered a pelvic contusion during Monday's game against the Spurs, leaving the contest after just 12 minutes.

Let us all pray for Curry's ankle because they need all the prayers it can get right now. It's like Curry has an undying taste for ruining his ankle, which is what will happen if he makes one wrong step on the court with his new low-tops. He asked for the switch onto (Jazz rookie hotshot Donovan) Mitchell and I think he did a great job there.
