Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry was not limited by his injured left middle finger in practice Thursday, putting him on track to play Saturday in Game 3 against the Houston Rockets.

“He practiced fully,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “He’s got it taped up, but it’s probably good that we’ve got a few days off. So hopefully the pain will continue to go down as we get closer to game time.”

Curry dislocated the finger Tuesday during the first quarter of Golden State’s victory in Game 2, leaving temporarily to get X-rays before returning with the finger taped to his ring finger. He finished with 20 points in 33 minutes and expressed optimism afterward that he wouldn’t miss time.

Curry again had his middle finger taped to his ring finger during practice Thursday.

“It’s not like he tore ligaments or anything, so he’ll tough it out,” teammate Klay Thompson told reporters.

Curry is averaging 19 points and 4.5 assists through two games against the Rockets, bringing his postseason averages to 23.3 points and 5.0 assists.

The Warriors lead the series 2-0.
