Report: Mavs’ Seth Curry has rejoined the team, inching closer to return
With one Curry currently on the mend from an ankle injury, another Curry is inching closer to a return.
Dallas Mavericks guard Seth Curry, who has been out of the lineup since before the season started with a stress reaction in his left tibia, has taken the road with the Mavs on their upcoming road trip, per Mavs play-by-play announcer Chuck Cooperstein.
The development may hint that Curry is close to returning to action.
Signs that @sdotcurry is inching closer to a return. He's on the road trip with the Mavs. 1st time he's done that since the injury on October 7.

Curry played 70 games for Dallas last season and averaged 12.8 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 2.7 assists in 29 minutes per game. His injury occurred sometime during the preseason this year.
With him being a key player for the Mavs, having him travel with the team is a major development. He’s likely been somewhat alienated from the team thus far this year, having to rehab that leg and rest it until it heals.
The Mavericks are currently 7-17, which is dead last in the Western Conference. They’re a half-game worse than the lowly Sacramento Kings.
It’s a bit of a stretch to say that Curry is Dallas’ savior, but his presence on the basketball floor should stabilize that team moving forward. The bottom of the conference is jumbled, so having Curry back sooner rather than later could lead to some much-needed wins to get into that eighth and final playoff spot.
