Stephen Curry showing few signs of rust in return
Corey Robinson highlights Stephen Curry's return to the Golden State Warriors lineup and looks at the superstar's immediate impact for the Dubs and fantasy lineups.
COREY ROBINSON: Warriors guard Stephen Curry made his return to the lineup on March 5. And there have been little signs of rust from the future Hall of Famer. He scored at least 27 points in each of the four games played since, including a 36-point effort in the Warriors' much needed overtime win over the Bucks on March 11. Shooting 13 for 27 from the field and 4 for 4 from the foul line, Curry also tallied six rebounds, four assists, two steals, one blocked shot, and six 3-pointers in his 43 minutes on the floor.
Over the last week, he's ranked 16th and 9 cat per game value, averaging 33.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 1.0 steals, and 6.3 3-pointers in 36.3 minutes, shooting 50.6% from the field and 94.4% from the foul line. If there's been an issue, it's been the turnovers, with Curry averaging 4.3 per game during this round.
But this isn't something to be too worried about, as he's averaging a little over three per game for the season. And the overall production has been high enough to minimize the damage done. The only letdown for Curry this season has been the availability, with the nine-time All-Star appearing in only 42 games.
