Stephen Curry’s path to recovery, back to action for Warriors


PHILADELPHIA — An MRI exam conducted by the Golden State Warriorson Thursday afternoon in Philadelphia confirmed that Stephen Curry suffered a left shoulder subluxation in the team’s 125-119 loss to the Pacers in Indianapolis on Wednesday.

Curry’s injury will not require surgery. Once he does return to action, his pain levels will determine if a procedure will be necessary during this next offseason or sometime in the more distant future. Fortunately for Curry, he injured his non-shooting shoulder, which should make his affliction somewhat easier to manage.

The recovery time for surgery would have taken between four and six months.

“That changed the whole dynamic of the conversation,” Curry said. “Just trying to stay positive and understand I’ll be back sooner than later, hopefully. Hopefully, I don’t miss a beat in terms of how I feel with the rest of my body and my game.”

Curry is averaging 30 points per game this season while shooting 50% from the field and 43.4% from 3-point range. The 34-year-old also leads the Warriors in assists per game (6.8) and is second on the team in rebounding (6.6) behind center Kevon Looney (7.6).
