Comcast Sportsnet has confirmed that Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry will suit up and start during tonight's game against the Indiana Pacers.

Curry has missed the last eight games with an ankle sprain.

After a short pre-game workout, he declared himself ready to play.

The injury has been bothering him all season. He battled through the pain a few times before finally being put out of commission for a lengthy period when he sprained it January 4th against the Spurs.

Curry, who was the seventh overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft, has struggled during his time on the court this year.

The team is just 1-4 with Curry starting, but have managed a complete record of just 5-9 heading into tonight.

The team looks to turn things around with Curry back on the court tonight against the Pacers, who are currently sitting at a 9-4 record.

Curry is clearly a step up from replacement Nate Robinson, but the rest of the team will need to step up as well if the team is going to turn this season around.

Other than Monta Ellis and David Lee, most of the team has struggled so far this season.
