Stephen Curry Re-Injured His Surgically Repaired Ankle

Terrible news for the Golden State Warriors and their star guard Stephen Curry, who hurt the same ankle that’s given him so many problems in the past. From the San Fran Chronicle: “Point guard Stephen Curry turned his surgically repaired right ankle in an ugly scene in the final minute of the first half of ‘ the Warriors’ 95-91 loss to the Kings on Tuesday night. Curry was trying to defend Jimmer Fredette’s crossover at the top of the key when his ankle gave way. He crawled toward the sideline at midcourt in agony and put little pressure on the troublesome ankle as teammates Charles Jenkins and Tommy Mitchell acted as his crutches for the trip to the locker room. Team doctors diagnosed Curry with a sprained ankle, and he will be re-examined today, according to the Warriors. Lee had team highs with 30 points and 12 rebounds, Monta Ellis added 19 points and six assists, and Curry had seven points, five assists and three steals in 15 minutes before his injury. Curry severely sprained the same ankle three times last season, missing a portion of the exhibition season and eight regular-season games. The Warriors believed that Dr. Bob Anderson, a foot and ankle specialist at the OrthoCarolina Clinic in Charlotte, N.C., had repaired instability in the ankle in May.”

    Damn, I was looking forward to that LAC/GSW game and Curry taking the next step this season.

    lmao ” when his ankle gave way” to a jimmer crossover lol curry so sweet… if it was reke its understandable but jimmer nah lol

  • Byphy

    The article is misleading. Curry stopped Jimmer & almost picked him, he just took a bad step and the ankle gave way.

    Jimmer Christ Superstar!
    Seriously though, this is a hot-mess for GS. I wonder if they traded Steph for Chris Paul if he would’ve even passed the physical or what would have happened

    Props Byphy, I hate when that happens for situations like these. I haven’t seen it yet, but those 2 situations couldn’t be more opposite…

    Just another start to a typical injury plagued Warriors season

    That Warriors/Clippers game just got alot less interesting. Now we know it’s going to be a blowout..

    thats a shame

    This could open up minutes for Klay Thompson against the clippers and actually make the game more interesting. Would be interesting to see how Ellis defends CP3 and whether Thompson’s length bothers Billups. GSW should be a better defensive lineup starting Thompson over either Monta or Steph. I still feel like Warriors need to make a choice between the two before they take that next step.

    repair instability? who is that dude god? You have to work your ass of on boring excercises to reduce the instability not it. Crazy doctors on your side of the pond always wanna do surgery. Dude was wearing his shoos very loose like a lot of american players and he didn’t seem to wear either ankle braces or taped in ankles. Safe to say dumb move by the training staff. I hope he get’s well soon.

  • tomtom

    Ab40 just how luse was he weering hiz shoos?

    Most NBA teams force their players to tape their ankles. And the loose shoes comment is speculation, and most americans don’t play with loosened shoes, that was a very ignorant comment.
