Warriors Guard Stephen Curry Undergoes Successful Surgery On Right Ankle
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry underwent successful surgery on his right ankle earlier today, the team announced. The exploratory procedure, which was performed by Dr. Richard Ferkel in Van Nuys, California, revealed a stable ankle with no structural damage and consisted of cleaning out loose debris and scar tissue. Curry is expected to make a full recovery and can anticipate returning to on-court basketball activities in approximately 3-4 months.
“The surgery went about as well as we could have hoped for entering the procedure,” said Dr. Ferkel. “We were pleased that the surgery was limited to simply a cleaning out procedure and I anticipate that he’ll be ready before the start of training camp.”
Curry has missed the last 27 games and 40 contests overall this season due to a right ankle injury.
