Warriors’ Stephen Curry cleared to face Atlanta on Sunday – Chico Enterprise-Record

Stephen Curry’s tailbone is apparently feeling well enough for him to play in Atlanta Sunday night.

That’s welcome news for a Warriors team that repeatedly found itself on the downside during a 53-point loss to the Toronto Raptors on Friday.

Curry was not listed on the team’s injury report on Saturday, a clear indication the Warriors’ star is available to help prevent a winless three-game road trip.

The Warriors suffered their third-worst loss in team history when they got blitzed 130-77 by the Raptors in Tampa, Fla. Golden State once trailed by 60 points during its lopsided loss.

For skeptics wondering how much difference Curry makes for the Warriors (23-26), consider he has the highest net rating in the league among regulars — the Warriors’ point differential is +16.6 with him on the floor. Rudy Gay (+15.9) and LeBron James (+14.2) are the next best team boosters this season.
