Speaking to Nick Friedell of ESPN, Davis is confident.
Fresh off a 99-91 win over the San Antonio Spurs to end the previous round, the Warriors will attempt to hold it down for Oakland at Oracle Arena against the likes of The Brow. "So.conceivable-I don't want to put a percentage on it because I don't know-but I'm not saying inconceivable. we'll know more pretty soon here". "As I try to think about getting back not just into game shape, my normal minutes I usually play, but on top of that we're talking about the playoffs, the second round. Anytime they score, we know they're going to score and make shots, it's tough, we just got to get the ball out fast and push it down the floor and try to [go] quicker".
Curry has been injured since mid-March having suffered a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his left knee.
But, Davis has no plans of backing down and is optimistic.

Davis doesn't think New Orleans can win the series, he truly believes it.
"I tell the guys all the time they should embrace this opportunity to compete against this team".
On the surface, it sounds folly given the Warriors have now been doing this for four years and know all the difficulties that come with it, while the Pelicans have been doing it for barely three months. "It gives you a great gauge as to where your franchise is, and where your team is, and where you need to get to really".
The New Orleans Pelicans, though, were the most impressive team in the first round, as the only team to sweep its series.
"It's an opportunity to beat the world champs", Davis said. "If he does play (in Game 1), we'll already have everything we would do if he's in the lineup. It's a great opportunity for everybody to add to their resume". Golden State, they weren't sure exactly how many days they needed to pack for on their trip to the Bay Area. His return would be a huge welcome for Golden State, which showed some vulnerabilities in his absence.
"At some stage, he'll play", Gentry said.
