The Warriors are close to getting back one starter while their star's status is still up in the air. 

Harrison Barnes could make his return as soon as Monday against the Hornets while reigning MVP Stephen Curry is questionable to play against his hometown team, according to the team.

Barnes has been out of the lineup with a sprained left ankle since late November. The team has gone 14-2 in his absence but was 17-0 without him. 

Curry reinjured his shin in the second quarter of his team's 111-108 overtime win over the Nuggets on Saturday after missing his first two games of the season against the Mavericks and Rockets. The Warriors went 1-1 in his absence.
