The Brooklyn Nets are hoping for a better go of things in the 2022-23 NBA season after a first-round exit via a four-game sweep by the Boston Celtics this season. The team recently revealed that Ben Simmons underwent offseason surgery to repair an injured back, and now the Nets have announced another player has undergone a procedure. According to Shams Charania, Seth Curry had surgery on his left ankle and the team is expecting him to make a full recovery in time for training camp.

Curry was a key player for the Nets throughout the season, particularly when the team was hampered by injuries and the absence of Kyrie Irving. On the year, Curry averaged 15.0 points, 3.6 assists, and 3.1 rebounds. He shot 48.7% from the field and converted an efficient 42.2% of his 3-point opportunities.
He was one of the few consistent players for Brooklyn in the Nets’ first-round series against Boston, throughout which he averaged 14.5 points on 56.4% shooting from the field. He played an average of 33 minutes per night and made more than 50% of his 3’s in the series, showcasing his sharpshooting ability.
It’s certainly good news that the Nets are expecting him back in time for training camp, as the team will be hoping he can continue to play a big role next year despite the addition of Simmons and the return of Irving. Curry has been a journeyman throughout his NBA career, but it seems he may have found a home in Brooklyn, where he enjoyed one of his best seasons to date. He’ll look to build upon his success from this past season once he recovers from the ankle surgery.
