Curry signed a two-year deal with the Blazers this summer. There is a player option for the second year. He has gotten off to a slow start to the season.
Curry is only averaging 4.8 points, 1.4 rebounds and 0.9 assists per game. He is shooting 38.7 percent from the field and 50 percent from three. He is also averaging around 17.1 minutes per game.
The Blazers were more than likely hoping that he would be that 3-point shooting weapon off the bench, giving the bench a boost in scoring, but it has not turned out that way thus far.
Despite the low scoring, he was very productive in the minutes he played and trying to make a positive impact on the game.
The Blazers’ next game is Friday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves, though, he’s already been ruled out for that game, according to Casey Holdahl.

The Blazers have plenty of guards that should be able to pick up the production they will be missing from Curry.
The Blazers are off to a blazing hot start of 10-4. With Curry being out for X amount of days, it will be interesting to see how the bench unit plays without him.
