Curry could still potentially require surgery on his injured left shoulder this offseason, Dwain Price of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Curry was forced to miss eight of the final 11 games of the season due to a nagging shoulder injury. He indicated Friday that while surgery is not necessary at this point, it is still a "possibility". The current hope is that rehabbing will eventually cure his ailing shoulder, but the 26-year-old admitted he is just "taking it day-by-day." Curry started 42 games for the Mavericks during a breakout season, recording career highs of 12.8 points, 2.6 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.1 steals, and 2.0 triples across 29.0 minutes per game.
Curry won't require offseason surgery on his left shoulder, but will likely need a month of rehab to recover from the injury, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports. The Mavericks shut Curry down for the final seven games of the season after the pain in his left shoulder became too much to bear, resulting in a disappointing finish to what had been a promising first year with the team. Fortunately for the 26-year-old, it sounds like he'll be able to address the injury through simple rest and rehab, putting him on track to return to training camp at full health. While the Mavericks figure to address their backcourt to some extent via the draft or free agency, Curry has a decent shot to open next season as the club's starting point guard after averaging 12.8 points (on 48.1% shooting), 2.7 assists, 2.6 rebounds, 2.0 three-pointers and 1.1 steals in 29.0 minutes per game in 2016-17.
Curry will undergo surgery on his left shoulder during the offseason, Earl Sneed of Mavs.com reports. Curry missed the final five games of the Mavericks' season due to soreness in the shoulder, and he announced at the team's exit interviews Thursday that the injury will require surgery. Curry did not state when, exactly, he'll undergo the procedure, but he noted that it'll entail at least a month of aggressive rehab. While it's not the most encouraging development, Curry should have no trouble working back to 100 percent health before the start of next season.
Curry (shoulder) is expected to miss the last three games of the season, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports. Curry has missed the last four games and with the season winding down and the Mavericks already eliminated from playoff contention, they'll avoid bringing Curry back into the fold too soon. The shoulder injury is not considered serious, however, and is expected to require just rest and rehabilitation to make a full recovery. Yogi Ferrell should continue to approach 30 minutes in his role as the team's starting point guard.
Curry (shoulder) will not play Sunday against Phoenix, Earl Sneed of Mavs.com reports. As expected, Curry will remain out Sunday, marking his fourth straight absence as the Mavs limp toward the lottery. Eliminated from the playoff race, Dallas no reason to rush Curry back into action, and coach Rick Carlisle commented earlier in the week that Curry could be held out for the remainder of the season. That's not official, however, so consider Curry doubtful for Tuesday's matchup with Denver.
