Warriors' Coach Steve Kerr says there is "no way" that Stephen Curry will be playing in the first round of the playoffs when they start on April 14. Curry has only suited up for 51 games this season due to other nagging injuries. Before he was injured in last Friday's game against the Atlanta Hawks, he had missed the previous six games with a tweaked right ankle.

"...We have to be ready to play without him and see how he's coming along," Kerr told the media before Sunday's match against the Jazz.

The Warriors coach told the media that Curry would be reevaluated in three weeks.

Kerr has confidence with or without Curry

With all the team's success the last three years under the reign of Kerr, it is no wonder the coach expresses so much confidence when it comes to his current injury ridden team.

The Warriors are winners of two NBA Championships and three NBA finals trips since Kerr has been the head coach. When the team is healthy, Golden State should be the best team in the entire league.

Anthony Slater, who covers the Warriors for The Athletic, tweeted a quote from Kerr on Monday that reiterated this confidence.

Kerr said, "...regular season or playoffs, we can beat anybody without Steph."

Kerr also mentions the similarities between Curry's injury in terms of the situation the Warriors went through last year when Kevin Durant missed five weeks with an MCL sprain in his left knee.

Although, Kerr acknowledged the fact that the timeline is a little different, as Durant was ready by the start of the postseason.

Unfortunately for Golden State, right now, they're down each of their four all-stars.

Sunday's game against the Jazz, the Warriors decided that Curry was ready to be put back into the lineup. No one could have expected the leader of the team to return form one injury and be sent back out with another before the game's end.

During the game, Curry was injured on a play when teammate JaVale McGee fell on Curry's leg. It caused the two-time all start to leave the game. Curry suffered a Grade 2 MCL sprain. The Warriors were already short on superstar caliber as Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson each recovering from injuries.

Green was set to return Sunday from a pelvic contusion but was ruled out with flu-like symptoms.

Kevin Durant has been sidelined since mid-March from fractured rib cartilage.

He has been going through some full-contact drills, according to Rotoworld, and is expected to return in the next few games.

On the other hand, Klay Thompson will miss a few more games with a fractured right thumb. Sources from ibtimes.com say that Thompson could return this Saturday versus the Sacramento Kings.
