Coach Steve Kerr says Curry will not play in Game 3 against the Blazers

For all the fans hoping that Golden State WarriorsAll-Star MVP and the other half of the Splash Brothers, Stephen Curry would return to the floor for the upcoming Game 3 match against the Portland Trail Blazers in the Western Conference Semi-finals, it looks as though said fans will have to wait a little longer. Curry has been out of action since sustaining a Grade 1 MCL sprain in Game 4 of the Warriors' first round matchup against the Houston Rockets. While Curry's presence isn't necessarily vital to the overall team's success in these early rounds of the 2016 Playoffs, the Dubs will most certainly need their best player if they do hope to continue their historic season and repeat as NBA Champions.

Curry will be re-evaluated at a later date, but, for now, the Warriors will have to continue to find a way to win without their floor general, that said, their 2-0 advantage over Portland certainly provides them with a decent cushion.

Upcoming Playoff action

In other news, the Cleveland Cavalierslook to take a commanding 3-0 series lead against the Atlanta Hawks following their NBA record-setting 3-point performance in a blowout win over the Hawks in the previous game. It seems that LeBron James and company are poised to make another deep run in this year's Playoffs, and, unfortunately for Atlanta, and despite their talented roster, it looks as though they can do little to stop The King.

The San Antonio Spurs are also in action against the Oklahoma City Thunder in their Western Conference matchup.

With the series tied at one game a piece, it's still very much anyone's series to win, and the ball is literally still up in the air and up for grabs. It'll be interesting to see if the duo of Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge put the Spurs up 2-1, or if the dynamic duo of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook do the same for their Thunder.

Either way, this is an exciting series that's still very much getting started, and certainly must-see TV.
