We will have to wait a little longer to see the on-court reunion between Golden State Warriors all-stars Kevin Durant and Steph Curry.
After being sidelined for over a month with a left knee injury, Durant [made] his highly-anticipated return to action against the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday night, but Curry [was] not out there with him.
Curry [had] been ruled out for the match-up with the Pelicans with a left knee contusion, per the Warriors PR department.
For tonight’s game vs. New Orleans, Kevin Durant will play. Stephen Curry (left knee contusion) is out.

Curry did not practice on Friday.
Though the Warriors don’t technically have anything to play for in their remaining regular season contests – they already have the top seed in the West and homecourt advantage throughout the Finals locked up – they do need to get Durant re-acclimated to the rotation; something that could potentially take a few games to happen. Curry sitting Saturday represents one less opportunity for him and Durant to gel before the playoffs begin.
The Warriors and Pelicans tipped off Saturday from Oracle Arena. Warriors won 123-101.
