Injured Stephen Curry #30 of the Golden State Warriors on the bench with Shaun Livingston #34 and Anderson Varejao #18 during their game against the Houston Rockets in Game Five of the Western Conference Quarterfinals during the 2016 NBA PlayoffsGolden State Warriors star Stephen Curry said Friday he's confident he'll be back from a sprained right knee within the two-week time frame originally given by doctors. "Having talked to the doctors, athletic training staff and all the experts, that two-week timeline is an educated guess based on other cases and the recovery time they had," Curry said in his first public comments since he was hurt last Sunday. With Curry sidelined, the Warriors kept their hopes of successfully defending their NBA title on track with a 114-81 rout of the Houston Rockets on Wednesday that sent Golden State into the second round of the playoffs.
