Both Curry and Nik Stauskas saw at least 20 minutes off the bench Friday, and each player managed to hit double digits in the scoring column. Considering Stauskas has the height to also fill in at the three, it's very conceivable that Curry and Stauskas often share the floor this coming season. Curry has been somewhat inconsistent with his shot after missing all of last season with a leg injury, but the scoring upside he demonstrated during the 2016-17 campaign in Dallas (12.8 points on 48.1 percent shooting, including 42.5 percent from three-point range) supports the notion he'll continue improving as the season unfolds.
Curry drew the start at small forward in the Trail Blazers' 123-112 preseason loss to the Jazz on Sunday but managed only four points (2-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and one steal across 22 minutes.
Curry's cameo in the starting five wasn't exactly a rousing success, but there also weren't a lot of shots left over after Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum combined for 24 attempts. Curry is still in the midst of working back into form after missing all of last season due to a leg injury, and he's encouragingly upped his minutes in each preseason contest thus far. Come the regular season, he's expected to serve as an important component of Portland's wing rotation.
Curry continues to re-acclimate to game action after missing all of last season due to a leg injury. His numbers saw a nice boost over those of his preseason debut last Saturday against the Raptors, when he'd mustered just three points over 13 minutes of action. The fifth-year guard will look to serve as a key source of scoring off the Portland bench during the coming season.
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.
