Curry, who missed Saturday night’s loss to the Charlotte Hornets because he was not feeling well, was a full participant during Monday’s practice in New York.That was the first absence for Curry during a season in which he’s playing at an MVP level. In 34.1 minutes per game, he is averaging 29.9 points on 48.6% shooting (42.3% from 3-point range), 6.2 assists, 5.4 rebounds and 1.2 steals.
Getting Wiseman and Looney back is a major boost for the Warriors, who have been playing without a single player taller than 6-foot-7 for the last 10 games. Golden State is 5-5 in that span.
Wiseman will play for the first time since spraining his left wrist in a loss to the Pistons on Jan. 30, and Looney will return from a sprained left ankle that sidelined him since Feb. 2.
Looney will start at center alongside Curry, Kelly Oubre Jr., Andrew Wiggins and Draymond Gree, head coach Steve Kerr said Tuesday evening.
In 21 minutes per game, Wiseman, 19, is averaging 12.2 points on 50.3% shooting, 6.1 rebounds, 0.7 assists and 1.3 blocks. Looney, 25, is averaging 3.7 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 14.7 minutes per game. Related Articles

Boston School Committee Student Member Resigns, Says District Was Censoring Him
BOSTON (CBS) – A student leader in the Boston Public Schools has resigned from the School Committee, charging that student voices are not being heard.
17-year-old Khymani James, a senior at Boston Latin Academy, says adult administrators and school board members simply overlook and ignore input from him and fellow students.READ MORE: You Dont Need To Feel Guilty: Lowell Psychologist Says Young People Shouldnt Wait To Get Vaccine
James and five other BSAC students who resigned spoke out on Saturday calling for change.
“From censoring our remarks and questions that get to the truth of the matter, to micromanaging our interactions with BPS personnel, we were never given a chance to hold the district officials accountable,” James said. “There must be accountability like we’ve never seen before, and students must not be the only ones to deliver it, but create an entirely different infrastructure that is unequivocally pro-student and pro-student impact.”
James announced his resignation on Twitter Thursday, posting a thread that began with, “I wanted to inform the public, and my constituents, that I have officially resigned from the Boston Student Advisory Council as well as the Boston School Committee.”

The Boston School Committee and Boston Public Schools have issued a statement on Saturday, saying they “deeply value the voice” of their students:
The Boston School Committee and Boston Public Schools deeply value the voice of our students and work to offer opportunities for them to be heard. The Boston Student Advisory Council (BSAC) is one of the many ways students speak on behalf of their peers and inform school district policy. We strive to create environments where young people can bring their unique student experiences to every conversation, to ask challenging questions, and to co-create solutions. Working alongside Youth on Board, our staff will take steps to engage BSAC members and determine how we work together to move forward. The Committee and district will continue conversations with BSAC members to hear their concerns and honor and amplify their voices in our decision making.MORE NEWS: Adopt-A-Teacher: Brookline Parents Help Educators Register For COVID Vaccines
BPS added on Saturday that they have reached out the family members of those serving on the BSAC to acknowledge the allegations.
