Stephen Curry has had to deal with ankle injuries throughout his entire career and has missed the last few weeks with a bad sprain to the same ankle he underwent surgery on during the offseason. There were whispers that Curry may return to the court on Friday night with the Indiana Pacers in town and it looks like that will indeed be the case.

Golden State Warriors fans should be both thrilled and anxious about this news. When healthy, Curry turns the Warriors into one of the more formidable opponents in a tough Western Conference. As many have seen, though, his ankles have been a continuing issue for the last few years and you have to wonder what happens if he goes down with an injury once again.
Tipoff from Oracle Arena is set for 7:30 p.m. tonight.
