Warriors’ Stephen Curry to play against Charlotte


Stephen Curry returned from missing a couple of games with a bruised calf, and promptly got kicked in the same spot. That led to speculation he would sit out Monday night’s game against Charlotte (his hometown team is visiting the Bay Area).

Nope. He’s good to go.

The Warriors play Tuesday night against the Lakers in Los Angeles on a back-to-back.

The Warriors are +6.4 points per 100 possession better when Curry is on the court; they could use that against a scrappy Hornets team (but one that has struggled lately).
