Steph Curry cleared to practice, could return this week

Warriors center Zaza Pachulia has his shot blocked by San Antonio Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge during the first half on Monday.

Aldridge had 33 points and 12 rebounds, and San Antonio blew a 16-point lead to the injury-ravaged Golden State Warriors before pulling away for an 89-75 victory on Monday night.

The Warriors have always put higher priority on health than results.

The Warriors are 53-18, 3 1/2 games back of the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference standings.

Curry, who missed most of December with a right ankle sprain, reinjured his ankle against the Spurs on March 8 when he stepped on Dejounte Murray's ankle after attempting a fast-break lay-up. Green soon went to the locker room and did not return to the bench.

Monday's game completes a run of three games in four nights for Golden State, who beat Phoenix 124-109 on Saturday evening with stars Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson on the sidelines. According to Chris Haynes of ESPN, the Warriors and Curry are looking at a Friday return against the Hawks.

And there was more trouble to come as Draymond Green left in the first half with a bruised pelvis.

LeBron James unleashed his 16th triple-double of the season Monday as the Cleveland Cavaliers welcomed Kevin Love back from injury with a 124-117 National Basketball Association win over the Milwaukee Bucks. Golden State has won six games when trailing by 15-plus points. Golden State was plucky for stretches, but they were ultimately and undeniably overmatched by their opponent. If the evaluation reveals enough progress and there are no unforeseen setbacks from this point to Friday, the sharpshooter intends to play after missing the past five games, sources said. "We just want everybody to be healthy, players, coaches. We got it. Now, we've got to keep building". He's a great guy.

The game didn't have much to offer other than a defensive battle by a team that lost yet another All-Star to injury and another that was desperate for a win to remain in playoff contention.

The Spurs responded by holding the Warriors to 12 points in the fourth quarter to help their bid for a 21st consecutive postseason appearance.

"It's hard. No matter how you slice it, it's difficult when you're dealing with that stuff and you have to do what's best for the team", Kerr said.
