Stephen Curry is going to have more than a few moments of truth this season for the Golden State Warriors. All told, he’ll probably accumulate enough for an hour or so of truth. There’ll be constant checkpoints for his surgically repaired ankle throughout the season, with the fate of the Warriors’ team success resting on each one.
The first of those moments happens on Tuesday, when Curry arrives in Oakland to work out at the Warriors’ practice facility for the first time this offseason. Curry’s slated to work out every day for the rest of the week under the watchful eyes of Golden State management.
According to CSN Bay Area’s Matt Steinmetz, “Warriors general manager Bob Myers indicated that Curry has been working out much of the summer but that this stretch will mark a stepping up of Curry’s rehab and basketball-related work.”
Supposedly, Curry is capable of working out without any physical restrictions, according to GM Bob Myers. But you can bet that the Warriors won’t be pushing Curry at this early juncture. Instead, the upcoming week is best viewed as a chance for the Warriors to get a look at their point guard so they can gauge his progress since he was last in town.
But as the staff watches Curry, they’ll be holding their collective breath with every L-cut and jab step. If there’s even a hint of fatigue or discomfort, the whole operation will be shut down in less time than it takes Curry to release his patented catch-and-shoot jumper.
This’ll only be a moment in the long story of Curry’s return from injury. Here’s hoping it’s a good one.
