The Golden State Warriors season began with huge holes left my the injury/departure of Kevin Durant and the Klay Thomspon’s torn ACL. The Warriors fortunes went from bad to worse when All-Star point guard Steph Curry broke his hand in just the fourth game of the season.

Since then, Golden State’s starting lineup has been ravaged by further injuries, to Draymond Green and D’Angelo Russell, and then shaken up by a deadline trade that sent Russell to Minnesota in exchange for Andrew Wiggins and more.

But on Sunday against the Washington Wizards, the Warriors will welcome a familiar face their lineup, as Curry will return the court for the first time in four months.

UPDATE 3/1: Curry will not suit up for the Warriors on Sunday night, as the point guard reportedly eyes a return some time later in March.

The Warriors, 12-45, currently hold the league’s worst record, by a 4.0-game margin over the 16-41 Cleveland Cavaliers. Curry’s return to the lineup won’t make the Warriors world-beaters, but it’s quite possible they win a few more games than previously expected before the season’s over.

Records aside, Curry’s return to the court will be important for both Warriors and NBA fans alike. As one of the league’s best players, seeing Curry back on the court, drilling three-pointers on Sunday night will just feel right.
