Golden State Warriors ahead Draymond Green praised teammate Stephen Curry for playing through a bruised tailbone in a chat with reporters on Thursday evening after the group’s 116-109 loss to the Miami Heat.

“He’s definitely in pain. . .so for him to come out there and give all that he got, going through the pain that he’s going through on a nightly basis for the last few nights–it’s something to follow,” Green stated, per ESPN’s Nick Friedell. “And I hope our young guys see that, because I do.”

Curry missed five games with a bruised tailbone, and the team proceeded to go 1-4 in that span. On the other hand, the two-time NBA MVP returned Monday and scored 32 points at a 116-102 win over the Chicago Bulls. Then he added 36 points against Miami.

It’s not a guarantee that Curry plays Friday against the Toronto Raptors, since the point guard told reporters he needed to see exactly how he felt:

Steph Curry said he’s”gotta see how I feel when I wake up” before determining if he could perform tomorrow vs Raptors. He said Tuesday was rough after playing that tender tailbone Monday.

Curry is averaging 29.2 points and 6.1 assists per game for the 23-25 Warriors, who are 10th in the Western Conference.

That spot is good enough for the final placement to the postseason play-in tournament area, but the Sacramento Kings sit only one game .

Golden State’s game against Toronto will happen on Friday¬†at 7 p.m. ET at Tampa, Florida.
