Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry, center, yells to teammates as he sits on the bench during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Houston Rockets Thursday, Dec. 31, 2015, in Houston.
"It's just like swelling and stuff that moves around, and you feel it pretty much everywhere, so the impact is on my shin", Curry said.
"We were active, with 35 assists as a team, everybody was contributing and everybody was making plays and reads, that was a championship effort", Walton said.
Curry was injured during Monday's 122-103 victory against Sacramento.
After missing the last two games for the Warriors due to a bruise in his leg, Curry was listed as probable leading up to the game against the Nuggets. He had a triple-double in the game.
Golden State is 30-2 on the season, 15-0 at home, 20-11-1 against the spread and 19-13 with the over. The Nuggets don't play a lot of defense so expect a high-scoring game. The reigning NBA MVP could be back as soon as Saturday and coach Steve Kerr (back), who made the road trip to Texas, and forward Harrison Barnes (ankle) are inching closer to their own returns for the Warriors.
"He did more today than he did yesterday, so that's progress", Walton said of Curry's brief workout before Thursday's game.
"It got better in Houston", he said. "It's got to be 'We are going to do this". "A lot of that will be decided between the medical staff and Steph". Warriors guard Klay Thompson said he believes Curry will play Saturday night against Denver but that his minutes will be limited.
