Golden State Warriors star point guard Stephen Curry was ruled out for Friday’s game against the Charlotte Hornets but he could return Saturday, according to coach Steve Kerr.

Curry, who is recovering from a sprained right ankle, will sit out for the 11th straight game on Friday. But he participated in parts of practice Thursday and took part in a 3-on-3 scrimmage afterward, prompting optimism he might be able to play Saturday against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Curry is slated to be re-evaluated on Friday.

“I don’t think it would make much sense, but I think he’s probably going to want to (play),” Kerr told reporters. “But it’s more likely he plays Saturday. If all goes well, I expect him to play Saturday, but even if it goes well, I’m not expecting him to play (Friday).”

Curry last played on Dec. 4. The Warriors are 9-1 without his services.

The two-time NBA MVP is averaging 26.3 points, 6.6 assists and 5.1 rebounds this season.
