Soo it sounds like Stephen Curry might not return on Sunday after all. Or maybe he will.

Listen to your team news NOW.

This update is, at least, mildy concerning.

On Tuesday, Shams had scooped the Sunday reintroduction.

After that Shams report, conflicting information immediately surfaced.

Last Saturday, Curry was cleared for contact and scrimmaged for the first time since fracturing his left hand on Oct. 30 against the Phoenix Suns. 

The two-time MVP didn't hide the fact that his hand doesn't feel completely "normal'"due to lingering nerve damage from surgery.

"When you have 280 pounds laying on your hand, it's bound for something like that to happen. Thankfully it's responding but it's just a slow process," Curry said. "I'm getting used to what the new normal is. It definitely feels different than the right." 

He also commented on the Warriors acquiring Andrew Wiggins after sending D'Angelo Russell to Minnesota.

"You look at our lineup and it obviously makes sense in terms of the position that he plays and the skill set that he brings," Curry said. "I'm excited about it... He's a walking 20 points for sure." 

Is he worried about his return 'ruining' Golden State's lottery odds? Nope.

Sunday's tip-off from Chase Center is at 5:30pm on 95.7 The Game.
