I dont think hell have anyrestrictions, said Myers, who was attending a ribbon-cutting ceremony tounveil the Warriors technology center at College Track on Monday. Hes being cautiousbecause he has time to be. But as far as full-go, hes there right now. Hesnot going to push it unnecessarily, though. Hes going to be cautious. But asfar as restrictions, theyve all been lifted.Curry missed 40 games lastseason of a possible 66 because of a nagging right ankle sprain that neverdid get right. He suffered several tweaks during the course of last season anddidnt play after March 11.Curry had surgery on theankle in late April to clean out loose debris. After that surgery, Dr. RichardFerkel said Currys ankle was stable and that the surgery revealed nostructural damage.Hes been doing it (workingout and playing), but not for long stretches of time, Myers said of Curry. Hellgo full speed, then stop to not push it because he doesnt need to. Were notgoing to try to break any barriers with it right now. But if you come watch himfor 10 or 15 minutes, youll see him going full speed without restrictions.The goal is to have Curryable to participate in all aspects of Warriors practice when training campbegins on Oct. 3.
