Gregg Popovich Jokingly Shouts 'Go Warriors' After Spurs' Game 2 Loss

Five observations from the Warriors' 103-90 Game 4 loss to the Spurs

That's because the sooner the second round can start, the more likely the Golden State Warriors will be without Steph Curry to start the series.

If both the Warriors and New Orleans Pelicans sweep the Spurs and Portland Trail Blazers, respectively, the National Basketball Association could move up the start date of the Western Conference semifinals to April 28 or 29.

But his words are at odds with a fresh report from The Athletic's Marcus Thompson II, who cited "multiple sources" suggesting Curry's return is not expected imminently.

He was initially given a timeline of four to six weeks to recover and, having made satisfactory progress to this point, will be re-evaluated again in one week after being examined by medical staff. That could mean it's more realistic for Curry, who no doubt is desperate to return to action, to return for Game 3 of the next round - especially if you factor in the Warriors' usual cautiousness.

But over the course of his 32-year rule, he has mostly gained worldwide attention for how he has spent the royal treasury. In addition to the symbolic value, the king also has more practical motivations for changing the country's name.

The Warriors now have a 3-0 lead over the Spurs and will look to close out their series on Saturday. The working parameters have been 4 to 6 weeks since JaVale McGee crashed into Curry's left knee. They close out San Antonio in a sweep. 2.

If the Warriors-Spurs and/or Pelicans-Trail Blazers series unexpectedly go longer than four games, the second-round could begin as late as either April 30 or May 1.

Stephen Curry is still not close to returning from his sprained MCL.
