Stephen Curry’s trainer reveals how Warriors star is staying in shape

Stephen Curry, Warriors

NBA players can’t train at their facilities anymore because of the coronavirus suspension. But Golden State Warriors superstar point guard Stephen Curry will be able to stay in shape at home.

That’s at least what Curry’s trainer, Brandon Payne, told KNBR 680 radio on Monday afternoon.

As transcribed by Drew Shiller of NBC Sports Bay Area:

“He’s got a fairly nice workout area there at his home,” Payne said. “He doesn’t have a basketball court, but he’s got stuff he can do outdoors. He’s got a nice place where he can lift and do his strength work.

“He’s a little bit ahead of the game, whereas some of these younger guys who are living in apartments and condos — they don’t really have that luxury. So planning and trying to get stuff done for them is a little bit more challenging.”

There was fear within the Warriors organization that Curry had contracted the virus. However, the two-time MVP simply had the flu.

The Warriors had the worst record in the NBA before play was suspended. Curry has only appeared in five games this season because of a left broken hand. The three-time NBA champion was averaging 20.8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 6.6 assists.

It’s been one eventful season for the Warriors. After Curry broke his hand in just the fourth game of the season, the team pretty much knew the campaign was over. The Warriors traded All-Star guard D’Angelo Russell to the Minnesota Timberwolves at the trade deadline.

Golden State acquired former No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins in the deal.
