Is Stephen Curry playing tonight? Star guard’s status uncertain for breaking 3-point record in Warriors vs. Pacers

The NBA’s 3-point record will soon be Stephen Curry’s.

Following Golden State’s loss to Philadelphia over the weekend, the Warriors star is only six 3-pointers away from tying Hall of Famer Ray Allen for first place on the NBA’s all-time leaderboard and seven 3-pointers from overtaking him.

Curry is making an average of 5.4 3-pointers per game this season. History is on the line the next time he takes the court.

Is Stephen Curry playing tonight?

The Warriors are back in action on Monday when they travel to Indiana to face the Pacers. Curry’s availability for the game is up in the air.

On Dec. 10, NBA Insider Marc Stein reported that the Warriors were “weighing a night of rest” for the two-time MVP in Indiana, increasing the odds that he’d break Allen’s record on Tuesday when they play the Knicks at Madison Square Garden.

According to The Athletic’s Anthony Slater, the Warriors still hadn’t made a final decision on Curry’s status for Monday’s game as of Saturday night.

“We’ll make the right decision accordingly,” Curry responded when asked if he expected to play Monday.

On Sunday, Slater reported that all of Golden State’s veterans are expected to play against Indiana, including Curry. Curry was not listed on the team’s injury report as of 9:30 a.m. ET on Monday.

Through 25 games this season, Curry is averaging 27.1 points, 6.3 assists, 5.6 rebounds and 1.7 steals on 43.3 percent shooting from the field and 40.4 percent from 3-point range. He’s missed one game with a bruised hip.
