Steve Kerr says Stephen Curry could make his Golden State Warriors comeback against the Toronto Raptors on Thursday.
The two-time NBA MVP has been out of action since October due to a broken hand.
Curry trained with the Santa Cruz Warriors, Golden State's G League affiliate, on Monday as he closes in on a return.
Warriors head coach Kerr on Tuesday revealed that the superstar guard may come up against the NBA champion at Chase Center.
Kerr said: "I heard everything [in Santa Cruz] went well, I'm happy that he got a really good scrimmage in.
"The physicality was the main thing for him - to go up and down and feel the screens, the bumps, the bruises ... all that stuff.
"I haven't talked with Steph yet, but talking with [Warriors director of sports medicine Dr.] Rick [Celebrini], everything went really well and so it's all good signs.
"Thursday is definitely a possibility."
The injury-hit Warriors (13-48) are bottom of the Western Conference, while the Raptors sit second in the Eastern Conference at 42-18, but have lost three in a row.
