Stephen Curry hopes to return sometime this season
The Warriors are expected to provide an update on Stephen Curry's ailing right ankle later this week, but the point guard beat his team to the punch Monday and offered a little bit of hope.
Curry said he's still holding onto the bleak possibility that he can play again this season, speaking publicly for the first time since visiting Dr. Richard Ferkel in Southern California on Thursday.
The renowned ankle and foot specialist is studying the history of Curry's ankle, which cost him eight games last season and has kept him out of 21 games this season.

Re: Stephen Curry hopes to return sometime this season
Stephen Curry is still holding out hope to return this season.
The Golden State Warriors announced Wednesday that Curry will be sidelined at least another two weeks with a sprain in his surgically repaired, troublesome right ankle. He will be reevaluated after that time, and it’s still unlikely he’ll play again this season.

Unclear that Stephen Curry will play again this season
After trying so hard to get back in the court, Warriors point guard Stephen Curry sounded as if he’d embraced the truth his season is over.
“You can ask our trainers and all that,” Curry said, “(about) me fighting them every day about how fast I need to get back to a certain level and how fast I need to be getting back on the court. And them keeping me patient. … Once we came to the conclusion we only had a week left and I wasn’t going to be able to play, I guess the decision was pretty much made for me.”
Curry is going to miss 40 games this season of that ankle. He sprained the ankle five times (at Sacramento on Dec. 20, vs. Chicago on Dec. 26, atPhoenixon February 22, and vs.Dallason March 19) this season. Last season, he missed a total of eight games thanks to four ankle sprains.

They shoulda unloaded Curry instead of Monta. Curry will have zero value going forward and will never be healthy enough to be of value to a team trying to make the playoffs. Warriors will never get it right.
