OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Stephen Curry has resumed light shooting without movement on his injured right knee with the hopes he could get into scrimmages by later next week, perhaps in time to be ready for Game 3 of the Golden State Warriors’ Western Conference semifinals at Portland.

Coach Steve Kerr said before Sunday’s Game 1 against the Trail Blazers that it’s “pretty slim” the reigning MVP would be ready for Game 2 on Tuesday night at Oracle Arena.

Curry sprained the MCL in his knee when he slipped on a wet spot just before halftime of a Game 4 win at Houston in the first round last Sunday. He said Friday he hoped to do some shooting within a day or two, and that happened Saturday. He still will have to test the knee by putting pressure on it and planting on it when he shoots.
