Warriors guard Stephen Curry was in Charlotte Monday to have his ailing right ankle examined by Dr. Bob Anderson, who performed the initial surgery this past offseason, as Insider Matt Steinmetz reported. It was the second opinion after team orthopedist Tim McAdams examined Curry's ankle on Saturday.
General manager Larry Riley issued the following statement Tuesday:
Following the examinations and consultations with both doctors, the diagnosis of Stephens injury remains a sprained right ankle with no structural damage. Stephen will continue to receive treatment and undergo rehabilitation therapy. He will be cleared to play whenever he is able to pass a functionality test on his right ankle.
While not necessarily an acute medical update, the fact that Curry has been significantly hobbled with no structural damage does not bode well for a productive season.
The Warriors signed point guard Nate Robinson to a one-year deal on Jan. 4.
