Following practice on Tuesday, head coach Steve Kerr delivered an encouraging update on Stephen Curry, who continues along the road back from a groin strain.

Curry is not yet practicing with the club but he has been working with Rick, director of sports medicine and performance.

“(He’s) feeling a lot better, which is a great sign,” Kerr said. “But this is not an injury that you rush back from.”

“So, this next week he’s going to try to continue to progress and hopefully he can get everything strong enough where in the not-too-distant future we’re putting him back in the starting lineup and play from there.”

Asked if Curry, already out for Thanksgiving eve against the Thunder, could return on Saturday when the Kings visit Oracle, Kerr brushed aside the idea.

“I don’t see it,” Kerr said as he shook his head. “It’s Tuesday. He hasn’t practiced a single time. So, he’s not playing Saturday. We’ll be re-evaluate Saturday.”

Based on that timeline, the earliest Curry would return is Monday Nov. 26 when the Magic come to Oakland.
