Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry is closing on a return to competitive action after taking part in training on Monday.
Curry is nearing a return from the left groin strain that has ruled him out of the last 10 games, and he could be in contention to play at the Toronto Raptors on Thursday.
On Monday, Curry scrimmaged with the Warriors' film crew and assistant coach Willie Green.
"All in all, it was a successful venture," said Warriors coach Kerr. "He's just trying to get his rhythm and his conditioning down, but he's doing well."
Kerr said earlier this week Curry would play at some point during a five-game road trip that begins in Toronto, adding he wanted to get Curry a few practice days before game action.
In 12 games this season, Curry is averaging 29.5 points, 6.1 assists and 5.0 rebounds per game while shooting 51.5 percent from the floor.
The 30-year-old was the NBA's Most Valuable Player in the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons. He has led the Warriors to three league championships in the past four seasons.
