Stephen Curry's injury in game four of the first-round playoff series with the Houston Rockets was a major concern for all involved. The original prognosis was that the reigning MVP would be out for at least two weeks as he recovers from a sprained knee issue. 

However, the point guard is hopeful he can return to action sooner than that, but knows he will most likely not be 100 percent fit when he steps foot on the hardwood. 

The Warriors proved they could win without him during the series with the Rockets but having their main man back would be a huge bonus, especially in a series against Portland, who boast a devastating backcourt duo.

Speaking to the media at the Warriors' practice facility on Friday, Curry said he was rehabbing the knee three times per day and spending up to five hours having treatment. 

As per the Associated Press, the 28-year-old said: "I always have an optimistic view, no matter what it is. I hope to get back sooner.

"Having talked to the doctors and athletic training staff, all the experts, that two-week timeline, as Bob said, was an educated guess on cases."

The Warriors begin their playoff series against the Blazers tomorrow night. Curry is sure to miss that game and is likely not to be back until, at the very earliest, when the competition moves to Portland.

The Dubs were incredible at the Oracle Arena throughout the regular season and even without Curry will be favourites to take a 2-0 lead from the games in the Bay.
