The Golden State Warriors announced point guard Stephen Curry was re-evaluated by the team's medical staff Tuesday and "continues to make good progress overall" in his recovery from a sprained right ankle.
The next step "will be to build his tolerance by increasing his on-court practice demands and intensity" before he's evaluated again Friday.

Stephen Curry injury update: https://t.co/hpLXGiRKoD2017-12-26 23:29:46
According to ESPN.com's Ramona Shelburne, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said Curry needs to participate in two or three practices before he returns to the floor.
Curry reportedly participated in a four-on-four workout Sunday.
The updated timeline gives Curry—who's missed the last nine games—a chance to suit up late in the week.
