Steve Kerr: Steph Curry looks tired

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has expressed concern over the fatigue exhibited by superstar Steph Curry in recent games.

Following a lackluster performance where Curry scored 20 points on 6-of-19 shooting in a loss to the Denver Nuggets, Kerr admitted that the sharpshooter appears fatigued.

Acknowledging the demanding schedule surrounding the All-Star Game festivities and the team’s busy stretch of games, Kerr emphasized that fatigue is a natural part of the season. He remains confident that Curry will bounce back from this phase in due time.

“I think Steph has looked tired to me the last couple games. And it makes sense. Doing the All-Star Game stuff, not getting much of a break, three games in four nights, the whole deal. He looks a little tired but this is all part of the season. These stretches happen and he’ll bounce back,” Kerr said.

When questioned about the possibility of resting Curry to ensure his recovery, Kerr indicated that the decision would be made on a game-by-game basis in consultation with the team’s medical staff.

“I’ll talk to Rick about that. We’ll just take it game but game and see how he’s doing. But like I said, I mean that this part of the season every player goes through it, just feeling a little fatigue, a little heavy legged and then he’ll get it back and if we have to give him a game to help do that, then we’ll do that,” Kerr said.

Curry, known for his exceptional scoring prowess, has been a key contributor for the Warriors this season, averaging 27.7 points per game (45.9% field goals, 41.4% three-pointers) along with 4.2 rebounds and 5.1 assists.

However, since the All-Star break, his numbers have slightly dipped, with averages of 22.3 points per game on 40.4% shooting from the field and 29.4% from beyond the arc.
