Stephen Curry Ankle Injury Analysis

The latest recurring injury to Stephen Curry and his ankle has fantasy owners worried. The time may have come to think about taking an indefinite period of time off. If that were the case, Nate Robinson might be a good pickup to supplement what Curry brought. Recovery from a sprain of any type requires time off to completely heal. By continuing to test it and potentially re-injure himself, he takes a step back in the rehab process and leaves fantasy owners waiting once again.

Curry is a player who relies on his quick first step which is limited because of the stability to perform such moves and agility in order to blow past defenders. With the recent loss of Monta Ellis there seems to be some questions as to how this would help their playoff push, especially with an ailing Curry and a thin back court. The organization has put a lot of faith in Curry and his ability to lead this team in the future. So they must expect that he will prevail through these ankle and foot issues to push his team to the next level as soon as this season.

After watching the Bucks matchup against the Warriors on Friday, it was apparent what they would be losing, being outplayed for much of the game. It will be on Stephen Curry to take over like Monta was so accustomed to doing but this will be challenging since there is not another guard to get the open looks. I would actually expect Dorrell Wright to perform a little bit better since much of the season it was an after thought to get him involved. Since many of the trade deadlines have passed in fantasy leagues it will depend on whether or not they shut him down for the remainder of the season, but you will not drop him until then.

Why would he want to risk potential injury? Because this is his team now and he is a competitor. I do not want to take that away from him because while he is in there you can expect an increase in just about every statistical category including the NA which would be the case if he further damages that ankle.
