Stephen Curry to Get Another Opinion on Injured Right Ankle

by March 26, 2012

The chances of Stephen Curry suiting up for the Golden State Warriors again this season appear to be quite slim, but he’s seeking additional medical consultation just to be sure. Reports the San Fran Chronicle: “Warriors point guard Stephen Curry flew to Los Angeles on Thursday to meet with foot and ankle specialist Dr. Richard Ferkel, who was instrumental in All-Star Ray Allen’s recovery from ankle surgery. Curry and a team doctor reached out to Ferkel to get additional information on the right foot and ankle problems that have plagued Curry’s season. The third-year guard has averaged 14.7 points and 5.3 assists, having missed 20 games, including the past eight. In conjunction with Dr. Bob Anderson, who performed Curry’s surgery in May, and Ferkel, the Warriors plan to update Curry’s rehabilitation plan, according to general manager Larry Riley. […] It’s hard to imagine complete health happening by the April 26 finale, but Riley said there is something to gain from Curry playing in the season’s final month. ‘To prove to himself and to put his own mind at ease,’ Riley said. ‘It’s a season that’s been very frustrating for him.'”
