War­riors: Stephen Curry ap­pears com­pletely healed after miss­ing 11 games with a strained groin. He made nine 3-point­ers and scored 42 points with nine re­bounds and seven as­sists against Cleve­land on Wed­nes­day night in a War­riors’ win. Cava­liers: Cleve­land Cava­liers cen­ter Tris­tan Thomp­son has been fined $ 15,000 for mak­ing an “in­ap­pro­pri­ate ges­ture” to a spec­ta­tor.

Thomp­son’s ac­tion came at the end of the Cava­liers’ 99-97 win over the Brook­lyn Nets on Mon­day at the Bar­clays Cen­ter. Thomp­son fin­ished with 19 points and 14 re­bounds. Heat: The Mi­ami Heat’s flight for their six-game western swing took off light on vi­tal cargo Thurs­day, with both Has­san White­side and Wayne Elling­ton re­main­ing be­hind due to per­sonal rea­sons.

The team did not de­lin­eate the rea­son for Elling­ton’s ab­sence, but said White­side re­mained be­hind as he awaits the birth of his first child.

Guard Dion Wait­ers, who is re­cov­er­ing from Jan­uary an­kle surgery, also re­mained be­hind, yet to travel with the team this sea­son.
