Curry agreed Monday to a two-year, $5.6 million contract with the Trail Blazers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. After missing the entire 2017-18 season in Dallas following surgery to repair the tibia in his left leg, Curry will join Portland and look to pick up where he left off prior to suffering the injury. Curry will give the Trail Blazers another strong outside shooter off the bench, with the 27-year-old offering the ability to swing to either backcourt spot behind starters Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum. The deal guarantees Curry $2.75 million in 2018-19 and includes a $2.75 player option for the second year.
Curry (leg), who's an unrestricted free agent, has been medically cleared for full basketball-related activities for the last month, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Curry missed the entire 2017-18 campaign due to a leg injury, which he eventually had surgery on in February. However, the season prior, Curry had his best year as a professional, averaging 12.8 points, 2.7 assists, 2.6 rebounds and 1.1 steals across 29.0 minutes. The 27-year-old guard shot 42.5 percent from deep that season and now that he's back to full strength, the sharp-shooting Curry should field plenty of interest heading into unrestricted free agency. He's proven he can be a capable starter in the backcourt, though Curry's role, as well as his fantasy potential, all depend on where he eventually lands as a free agent.
Curry will undergo season-ending surgery on his left tibia, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. He is expected to make a full recovery in 12-to-14 weeks. The 2017-18 campaign will go down as a lost season for Curry, who was initially diagnosed with a stress reaction in the leg back in early October. The 27-year-old will be a free agent this offseason but is fully expected to be at full strength by the time teams are able to sign players. For the remainder of the season, the Mavericks will seemingly continue to rely on the likes of Dennis Smith, Wesley Matthews, Yogi Ferrell, J.J. Barea and Devin Harris to handle the minutes at either backcourt spot.
Curry (lower leg) will remain out for Monday's game against the Clippers, and it's still unclear when he might make his season debut, Earl Sneed of Mavs.com reports. Curry is yet to see the floor this season as he continues to work back from a stress fracture in his lower left leg. The Mavs haven't offered much in the way of a firm timetable, though at this point it seems rather unlikely that Curry would make his debut before the All-Star break.
Coach Rick Carlisle indicated Tuesday that Curry (lower leg) will remain sidelined until February at the earliest, Earl K. Sneed of the Mavericks' official site reports. Curry, who continues to recover from a stress reaction in his left tibia, has yet to make his season debut with the Mavericks. Yogi Ferrell, J.J. Barea, and Devin Harris will continue seeing extended minutes in his ongoing absence.
