Dallas Mavericks' Seth Curry (shoulder) late scratch vs. Oklahoma City Thunder
DALLAS (AP) — Mavericks guard Seth Curry was a late scratch against Oklahoma City with a left shoulder injury.
The absence ended a streak of 34 straight starts for the younger brother of Golden State star Stephen Curry. Dallas was 20-14 in those starts after a horrid start for an injury-plagued team.
Seth Curry was replaced in the lineup Monday night by rookie Yogi Ferrell, who earned a two-year deal with a flashy debut in seven straight starts after joining the Mavericks on a 10-day contract.
Curry replaced Ferrell as the starting point guard last week. He is averaging career highs of 12.8 points, 2.7 assists and 29 minutes in his fourth season.
