Stephen Curry’s injury status unclear; Golden State Warriors hopeful for early return - NBA News
Golden State Warriors talented young star Stephen Curry is still battling the ankle injury which ruled him out for the club’s recent fixtures and the team management had admitted that they aren’t clear about his status just yet. Talking to the media Larry
Riley, the club’s General Manager, did say though that the injury isn’t too serious and Curry should be back in action sooner rather than later.
Stephen had to leave a game against the San Antonio Spurs with an ankle sprain and hasn’t featured since. The player has had surgery on his leg before but recent troubles with the ankle have raised questions over his long term fitness.
"Everybody has some level of concern because of the way it has been sprained in the past but we're all convinced we're doing the right thing," Riley said.
Riley believes the team should get more clarity on Curry’s injury in the coming couple of days. What they do know so far is that he will not need another surgery. Depending on how his body responds to treatment, Stephen could be available within the next
10 to 15 days.
In the meantime, his teammates have to carry on playing without one of their most talented colleagues. Riley knows that the team suffers without Curry, but is adamant not to rush his return and jeopardize future health.
"He's a good player, a really good player, that we need. And yet you also want to protect him as far as his future is concerned and our future is concerned."
Stephen first complained of a problem with his ankle during the summer of 2010 when he was with Team USA. He has since not been able to get rid of the issue despite consulting many specialist from around the country.
Larry believes that Stephen, along with Monta Ellis, is the future of the franchise and Golden State wouldn’t be able to get where they want to be without him. He is therefore very concerned about the situation and wants it resolved once and for all, as
soon as possible.
"Knowing the origin doesn't do much for us, we are more interested in the solution," Riley said. "We won't put him out there until he's ready and until the doctors, all of them, and our people say he's ready to go."
The 6-foot-3 point guard is a sight to behold when in full swing and healthy. He averaged a very impressive 18.6 points per game and 5.8 assists per game last season in the NBA and at just 23 years of age is already a key player for the Warriors. He was
averaging above 15 points per game this season before getting injured.
