Steph Curry is set to make a return to the court during the Golden State Warriors‘ upcoming East coast road trip, the team confirmed Saturday.

The stretch of games away from Oracle Arena begins in Toronto on Nov. 29 and ends on Dec. 7 in Milwaukee.

Curry, who has missed the last eight games due to a strained left groin, was re-evaluated by the team’s medical staff and is expected to resume practicing with the team next week. He is averaging 29.5 points, five rebounds and 6.1 assists on the season while shooting a blistering 49.2 per cent from three-point range.

The Warriors have struggled in the absence of the league’s two-time MVP, losing four straight games for the first time since Steve Kerr took over as head coach, before snapping out of it with a 125-97 win against the Portland Trail Blazers Friday night.

Golden State sits at fourth in the Western Conference with a 13-7 record on the season heading into Saturday’s action.
