The Golden State Warriors announced Saturday that point guard Stephen Curry's Grade 2 left MCL sprain will be re-evaluated in one week.

In the statement, the Warriors said Curry has made "steady functional progress" and that he will soon "intensify his on-court rehabilitation."

Curry has missed the team's past 10 games after suffering the injury March 23 against the Atlanta Hawks.

The second-seeded Warriors will begin their playoff push Saturday with Game 1 of their first-round series against the No. 7 San Antonio Spurs.

Golden State struggled down the stretch without the two-time NBA MVP and finished the season on a 4-6 run.

The Warriors have reached the NBA Finals in each of the past three seasons and have won two of the past three championships.

Golden State isn't currently the top team in the Western Conference, however, after the Houston Rockets finished seven games ahead of the Dubs.

Curry was limited to just 51 games this season due to injury, but he was highly productive when he played, with averages of 26.4 points, 6.1 assists and 5.1 rebounds.

He also shot 49.5 percent from the field and 42.3 percent from beyond the arc.

With Curry out for the time being, Quinn Cook remains in line to start alongside Klay Thompson in Golden State's backcourt.
