Stephen Curry still working on getting full range of motion back
It has been nearly two weeks since Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry suffered a groin strain. Curry sustained the injury in the third quarter of the Warriors loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on November 8. Since then, the two-time MVP has missed the Warriors’ last five contests, where the team has been 2-3 without their five time All-Star.
Curry is currently rehabbing his injury, and is still working to get his full range of motion back.
“Progress is moving in the right direction,” Curry said per Nick Friedell of ESPN. “Haven’t had any setbacks or anything like that. But it’s more so about getting full range of motion, doing so where it’s pain-free and things like that.
Based on his statements, it seems like Curry is still feeling the ill-effects of his injury. Nonetheless, It’s good to hear that he hasn’t suffered any setbacks during his recovery period.
This is the first time that Curry suffered an injury like this one. Thus, it makes sense for him and for the Warriors to be cautious and not rush his return. Curry currently does not have a time table set in stone for his return. He will, however, be re-evaluated in around one week to gauge when a possible return to the court could happen.
Nonetheless, the Warriors would definitely want to have their two-time MVP back in the fold. Prior to his injury, during Golden State’s 10-1 start, Curry was lighting up the league, averaging 31.3 points, 5.4 rebounds, 6.1 assists, and 5.6 three-pointers per game with an insanely efficient 52.5/50.8/92.3 shooting split.
