OAKLAND, Calif. — Stephen Curry did not practice Thursday with the Golden State Warriors and is unlikely to play in Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinals at Portland.

Curry did some work on the court but has yet to scrimmage. Coach Steve Kerr said “probably not” when asked about Curry playing Saturday.

Kerr said, “Everything has gone very smoothly. He hasn’t had any setbacks.”

Defending champion Golden State leads the best-of-seven series against Portland 2-0. The Warriors had Wednesday off from practice after winning Game 2 on Tuesday night at Oracle Arena.

Curry injured his knee April 24 when he slipped on a wet spot just before halftime at Houston in the first round of the playoffs.
