Although the guard looked in pain, Curry was able to play 36 minutes against the Miami Heat to start a three-game road swing for the Warriors. On the second leg of Golden State’s road back-to-back against the Toronto Raptors, Curry will be sidelined with the same lingering tailbone injury.

In Curry’s two-game stretch following his return from injury, the seven-time All-Star guard led the Warriors with over 30 points in each contest. Over two games, Curry averaged 34 points on 46.5% shooting from the floor with 8.0 rebounds and 4.5 assists per contest.
Without Curry, Jordan Poole will slide back into Golden State’s starting lineup. During Curry’s first stint on the injury report, Poole stepped up for Golden State, tallying 20.4 points on 46.1% shooting from the field with 3.6 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 34.6 minutes per game. Steve Kerr and the Warriors will need to lean on Poole on Friday against the Raptors.
The Warriors are slated to meet the Raptors on Friday at 4 p.m. PT.
