No “Exact Timeframe” For Seth Curry in Recovery
After an injury to his tibia, Seth Curry speaks with the media on his recovery, how the injury happened and when to expect him back.
“Left shin. Right in the middle of my left shin,” Seth Curry said when asked where exactly the injury was to his left tibia.
On Saturday, October 7th, the Dallas Mavericks sent out an official press release announcing that Seth Curry was diagnosed with a “stress reaction to his left tibia” and that he would be re-evaluated on a weekly basis.
On Monday night, before the game against Orlando in Dallas, Curry took time to speak on his injury and moving forward.
“It was coming along for a couple of weeks,” Curry said. Curry said he started feeling it in his tibia during training camp, but it wasn’t until he banged it in practice that he knew something wasn’t right.

Now, Curry finds himself sitting out for the next week and with an indefinite timeline on his recovery. With the October 18th opener on the horizon, Curry is unsure if he will be ready in a week.
“Right now it’s about rest and getting off of it for a week or however long,” Curry said. When Curry was asked about the timeframe of his recovery, he says there is no exact timeframe.
“A week, week and a half. See how it progresses from there. Not really an exact timeframe,” Curry said.
The most important thing for Curry and the Mavs is to take it slow as rushing Curry back does no good for anyone involved. “Could be a week from now, could not. Trying to be smart about it,” Curry said.
