He looked fine. He's probable for Thursday.

Curry, who missed Monday night's win over Orlando with a right thigh contusion, went through a light practice Tuesday with no problems.

Without Curry to run the offense, the Warriors were clearly pulled out of their element against the Magic, leading to a tough first half for Golden State. He suffered the injury Saturday against Philadelphia.

"He looked good. We didn't practice hard today. Unless he has a setback in the next couple of days, he'll play", coach Steve Kerr told reporters. After heading to the locker room briefly in the second quarter, he returned and finished with 22 points and nine assists in 30 minutes.

Veteran Shaun Livingtston got the start Monday against Orlando and, in a sign of confidence in Curry's return, the Warriors sent guard Quinn Cook back to the G League.

Center Damian Jones also rejoined Santa Cruz. Jones was recalled Monday for practice, but wasn't active for Golden State's win over Orlando.

Looney impressing: Golden State's decision not to pick up Kevon Looney's fourth-year option on October 31 raised an intriguing question: Would Kerr be less apt to play Looney meaningful minutes moving forward?

While it was definitely a team effort that saw the Warriors push their win streak to seven, here are three players that were particularly extraordinary against the Magic.

Curry is averaging 25.2 points, 6.7 assists and 1.8 steals per game.
