There’s been plenty of speculation during the postseason regarding Stephen Curry’s injuries, and following a published report that he might require a pair of surgeries during this summer, the back-to-back MVP poked fun at the idea that he’s seriously hurt.
Curry insists that he’s fine aside from a few nicks.

Curry looked perfectly healthy while dropping 38 points on the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 4 of the NBA Finals, pushing the Golden State Warriors to within a victory of their second consecutive NBA title.
Per CSN Bay Area:
There was a large ice pack wrapped around his right shoulder, a visual that was particularly notable in the wake of weekend reports he is coping with a shoulder injury. […] The ice pack was, according to Curry, his comedic response to reports he was having problems with his shoulders.
“I can’t even keep a straight face,” Curry said. “Whoever said I was getting shoulder surgery and all that kind of stuff, we’ve got bumps and bruises, but every – we’ll be all right.”
The ice pack did, however, renew discussion of Curry’s health this postseason. […] The MVP tweaked his right ankle in Game 1 of the first round against Houston, and then sprained his right knee in Game 4 of that series. Diving for a loose ball in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals against Oklahoma City, Curry landed on a metal support behind courtside seats at Oracle Arena and sustained an elbow contusion.
