In an offseason full of encouraging signs, the Golden State Warriors may have taken their most positive step this week. Stephen Curry is back in Oakland and has been working out at the team’s facility since Tuesday.
And the reviews are all good.
Curry sat down to talk to the media after running through some shooting and agility drills Thursday. You can check out the two part transcript CSN Bay Area’s Matt Steinmetz put together here and here.
Most of the questions naturally focused on his health and his expectations for the team this season. Curry’s a savvy young player, so he certainly didn’t offer any revelations or boastful predictions. But he did provide a couple of important sentiments.
First and foremost, Curry says he’s healthy. He told the media the following:
I’m feeling great. I know I’ve said it before…but being out since March, having surgery in April and my last two-and-a-half montsh of rehab, it’s been a good process and I’m being patient with it. Right now, being able to [do] a fullcourt workout and not having any soreness and tightness, it’s very optimistic where I’m at.
There’s video evidence to support Curry’s contention, too. Check it out here.
Secondly, Curry is positive he’ll be ready to go for training camp, despite still not having played any five-on-five games.
The whole point of having surgery when I did and being patient with my rehab was so that on October 31 I wouldn’t have restrictions or heistancy about going out and playing. That’s what’s going to happen.
That’s all great. Let’s hope he’s primed, healthy and ready to go on Halloween. And most of all, let’s hope we never see this again:
