STEPHEN CURRY (PG)
  • Jun 21 2016, 10:56 AM

    Update: Curry said Monday that he won't require any offseason surgeries to address his right ankle, right elbow or right knee injuries, Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Analysis: Curry appeared to be noticeably limited by the assortment of injuries during the playoffs, particularly in the Warriors' seven-game series loss to the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals, when he was held to averages of 22.6 points (on 40.3% shooting from the field), 4.9 rebounds, 4.6 three-pointers, 3.7 assists and 4.3 turnovers across 35.1 minutes per game. The two-time MVP plans to use the offseason to rest and recuperate, as he's already opted out of suiting up for the United States in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. He should be fully healed by the time training camp arrives in the fall and will again be a viable option as the first overall pick in fantasy drafts.

    Update: Curry managed 17 points (6-19 FG, 4-14 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 39 minutes during the Warriors' 93-89 loss to the Cavaliers in Sunday's Game 7.

    Analysis: Curry started the game hot from downtown, but fizzled down the stretch and recorded under 20 points for the fourth time in the series. In addition, Curry committed four turnovers Sunday, and finished the NBA Finals with more turnovers per game (4.3) than assists (3.7). After a historic regular season, the back-to-back MVP saw his numbers drop across the board in the postseason, and particularly in the series against the Cavs. It's entirely possible that Curry hasn't been 100 percent healthy since returning from the knee injury that he suffered during the first round of the playoffs, but he made no excuses and denied notions of offseason surgery. Expect Curry and the Warriors to come back hungry in 2016-17 with hopes of recapturing the crown.

    Update: Curry scored 30 points (8-20 FG, 6-13 3Pt, 8-9 FT) to go with two rebounds and one assist across 35 minutes before fouling out of Thursday's 115-101 loss to the Cavaliers in Game 6.

    Analysis: After being whistled for his sixth foul late in the fourth quarter when the game was slipping away from the Warriors, a frustrated Curry angrily threw his mouthpiece, hitting a Cleveland fan in the front row. Curry also berated referee Jason Phillips, who issued a technical and ejected Curry for the first time in his career. Curry apologized to the fan, but was clearly frustrated by the treatment he received from officials. After the game, coach Steve Kerr verbalized the point guard's frustration and expressed his own brand of outrage about the officiating to Diamond Leung of the San Jose Mercury News. 'He's the MVP of the league. He gets six fouls called on him, three of them were absolutely ridiculous,' Kerr said. Perhaps the home comforts of Game 7 in Oakland on Sunday will be the remedy the Warriors need, as the team has dropped two close-out games in a row while Curry has shot just 39 percent from the field.

    Update: Curry exploded for 38 points (11-25 FG, 7-13 3Pt, 9-10 FT), six assists, five rebounds and two steals over 40 minutes during Friday's 108-97 victory over the Cavs in Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

    Analysis: The lethal marksman everyone had been waiting to resurface finally reared his head in spectacular fashion Friday, with the reigning MVP setting series highs in virtually every offensive category. Curry had uncharacteristically averaged just 13 shot attempts over the first three games of the series, but put the ball up 25 times in Game 4, resulting in double the point total of Game 3. His MVP-caliber performance was essential to the Warriors scoring a double-digit victory in one of the toughest arenas in the league, and puts Golden State in a perfect position to clinch their second consecutive championship at home on Monday in Game 5.

    Update: Curry has withdrawn from the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil, Sportando reports.

    Analysis: In the press release, Curry cited the need to get his body back to full health, as recent ankle and knee injuries have taken a toll on him this season. Instead of taking part in the 2016 Summer Olympics, he's opted for rest and body rehabilitation. With all that said, Curry is coming off an efficient 18-point (7-11 FG, 4-8 3Pt), nine-rebound performance in Game 2 of the NBA Finals and should come out firing on all cylinders again come Wednesday's Game 3.

    Update: Curry scored 18 points (7-11 FG, 4-8 3Pt) to go with a game-high nine rebounds along with four assists and a blocked shot in Sunday's 110-77 Game 2 win over the Cavaliers.

    Analysis: Curry, who made just 4-of-15 field-goal attempts in Game 1, had his shot working Sunday, but ran into foul trouble early. He picked up three personals in the first half and was whistled for a fourth early in the third quarter. That ended up limiting his playing time, which was further curtailed when the Warriors ran away and hid from the Cavs in the second half, outscoring them 58-33. It's an odd and rare sight to watch the league's reigning two-time MVP become a cheerleader on the bench, but that speaks to the strength of this Warriors team that they can blow out opponents without Curry playing at his best.

    Update: Curry provided only 11 points (4-15 FG, 3-8 3Pt), six assists and five rebounds over 36 minutes during Thursday's 104-89 victory over the Cavaliers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

    Analysis: It turned out to be a night for the Warriors' bench to shine, as Curry and vaunted Splash Brother Klay Thompson could only combine for 20 points. The tally was easily the MVP's lowest point total in any non-injury-shortened postseason game in the playoffs, and the least he'd scored overall since a 14-minute stint against the Nuggets back on Jan. 2. The encouraging thing for the Warriors was that they still managed a double-digit victory over an elite squad, and that it's highly unlikely Curry suffers through another similar performance again in the series. The perennial All-Star will try to put the subpar outing behind him Sunday night when Golden State attempts to forge a 2-0 lead in the Finals.

    Update: Curry supplied 31 points (9-22 FG, 6-13 3Pt, 7-9 FT), 10 rebounds, nine assists and two steals over 41 minutes during Saturday's 108-101 defeat of the Thunder in Game 6 of the Western Conference finals.

    Analysis: With teammate Klay Thompson setting an NBA postseason record from beyond the arc, Curry amazingly played second fiddle in the three-point department for once. However, he still managed to drain several jaw-dropping bombs down the stretch. It was likely his most complete game of the series, as he came within an assist of a triple-double and grabbed double-digit rebounds for only the second time in the postseason. His shooting is still somewhat off the mark, as Curry's 42 percent success rate from the field against the Thunder is his lowest of the three playoff series. Despite some struggles, he clearly remains the catalyst for the Warriors' attack on the overwhelming majority of nights, and will certainly be one of the focal points of the offense in Game 7 on Monday.

    Update: Curry scored a team-high 31 points (9-20 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 10-10 FT) to go with seven rebounds, six assists and five steals in Thursday's 120-111 win over the Thunder in Game 5 of the series.

    Analysis: Amid reports that Curry isn't 100 percent healthy -- one claiming he was around 70 percent -- the point guard responded by scoring a series-high 31 points and turned up the defense in the fourth quarter, blocking a Kevin Durant shot and later stealing the ball from him. In some respect, the elbow, ankle and knee injuries he's dealt with the past few weeks has impacted him. Curry's shooting marks from the field and from three-point range in the postseason are well below percentages from the regular season, but that just brings the two-time MVP back to mere mortal levels.

    Update: Curry managed 19 points (6-20 FG, 2-10 3Pt, 5-7 FT), five rebounds, five assists and two steals across 39 minutes during the Warriors' 118-94 loss to the Thunder in Tuesday's Game 4.

    Analysis: It's a rare night when Curry has more shot attempts than points or more turnovers (six) than assists, but the reigning MVP almost never does both of those things in the same game. While it's possible his elbow is negatively affecting his play, credit the Thunder for their aggressive blanketing of the two-time MVP. Through the first four games, Curry is averaging 24.3 points (on just 41.9 percent shooting) to go with 5.5 assists, 4.5 rebounds, and 2.0 steals in 34.8 minutes per game.

    Update: Curry (elbow) scored a team-high 24 points (7-17 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 7-8 FT) to go along with five rebounds, three assists and two steals in 30 minutes during Sunday's 133-105 loss to the Thunder in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals.

    Analysis: Curry had taken a spill in Game 2 last Wednesday, which resulted in some swelling on his shooting elbow. His accuracy was off from its normal state Sunday, but that was a team-wide malady, partly caused by the Thunder's defense. The Warriors will need their usual contributions from Curry and his co-stars if they hope to avoid falling into a 3-1 series hole in Tuesday's Game 4 in Oklahoma City.

    Update: Curry (elbow) will start in Game 3 on Sunday, Monte Poole of CSNBayArea.com reports.

    Analysis: Curry suffered an elbow injury in the first quarter of Game 2 but has been cleared to play Sunday night after fully participating in shootaround on Sunday morning. The two-time MVP shouldn't see his minutes restricted.

    Update: Curry (elbow) is expected to play in Sunday's Game 3 against the Thunder, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Analysis: Curry isn't being listed on the team's injury report after he suffered a swollen right elbow while diving into the stands early during the Warriors' win in Wednesday's Game 2. He was able to play through the ailment and finished with a rather typical stat line, so at this point, there's no plan for the point guard to drain the elbow. He should be able to take on as many minutes as necessary in Game 3.

    Update: Curry suffered an elbow injury after his first-quarter dive into the stands for a loose ball during Wednesday's Game 2 win over the Thunder, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Analysis: Curry's elbow began to swell up during the game, and was spotted with a bandage around his shooting arm at the post-game news conference. He downplayed the injury when talking with reporters, suggesting the ailment doesn't affect his range of motion, which was certainly evident given that he finished the night with 28 points on 9-for-15 shooting, including a 5-for-8 mark from three-point range. He should be fine to receive his usual court time in Sunday's Game 3.

    Injury: NO

    Update: Curry recorded 28 points (9-15 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 5-5 FT), three assists, two rebounds and one steal across 30 minutes during the Warriors' 118-91 win over the Thunder in Wednesday's Game 2.

    Analysis: Curry bounced back with an efficient scoring performance after struggling in Monday's Game 1 loss, and effectively salted the game away in the third quarter with a 15-point barrage in a two-minute span. The two-time MVP is still playing through some pain in his knee, but with a few days off before Sunday's Game 3, the extra rest will likely do Curry well.

    Update: Curry said his knee isn't at 100 percent, but the pain is tolerable, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Analysis: Curry put up an acceptable stat line in Monday's Game 1 loss to the Thunder (26 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists), but missed five of six shots during the fourth quarter, had seven turnovers and went to the line just twice. He'll play through the injury as long necessary, but there might be some lingering impact on his game. Curry and the Warriors will be back in action for Wednesday's Game 2 tilt.

    Update: Curry tallied 29 points (10-20 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 11 assists, five rebounds and one steal over 37 minutes in Wednesday's series-clinching Game 5 win over the Trail Blazers.

    Analysis: Returning to a starting role after coming off the bench in Game 4 due to his knee injury, Curry scored just seven points in the first half Wednesday before turning it on for the final period. He finished with 12 of the team's final 15 points to bury the Trail Blazers, and dished out some crucial assists along the way. Curry, who accepted his second consecutive regular season MVP award prior to Game 5, seems to be fully healed from the knee injury and should continue to operate with frightening precision and efficiency as the Warriors move on to the Western Conference Finals.

    Update: Curry (knee) has been upgraded to questionable for Monday's Game 4 against the Blazers, Marc Spears of ESPN.com reports.

    Analysis: Curry has missed the first three games of the series while recovering from a sprained right knee, but he's been working out over the past few days, including a light practice Sunday which included some three-on-three work. With the Warriors still in control of the series, there isn't a huge sense of urgency to bring Curry back, and coach Steve Kerr said he'll speak with his staff before making a final call on Curry's status later in the afternoon. If Curry is ultimately held out again, expect Shaun Livingston to continue to start in his place.

    Update: Curry (knee) participated in a light practice Sunday that included a three-on-three session afterward, but remains doubtful for Monday night's Game 4 against the Trail Blazers, The San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Analysis: Curry reported no problems with his sprained right knee after the practice, and coach Steve Kerr left open the possibility of him playing Monday if the knee responds well to Sunday's workout. Even so, we're not anticipating that Curry will be cleared to suit up, so Shaun Livingston likely remains in line for another start at point guard.

    Update: Curry (knee) is officially listed as doubtful for Game 4 against the Trail Blazers on Monday, Diamond Leung of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Analysis: Curry has resumed taking some light contact in practices, but it still doesn't look like the point guard is going to be ready to play by the time Monday rolls around. If Curry can't play again, look for Shaun Livingston to continue to start at point guard.

    Injury: YES
