Dallas Mavericks guard Seth Curry suffered a knee contusion in the Oct. 14 game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Find out the latest here.

Dallas Mavericks fans are excited about the return of Seth Curry. The 29-year-old got his first major opportunity with the Mavs back in the 2016-2017 season. He made the most of it by averaging 12.8 points per game while shooting 48.1 percent from the field and 42.5 percent from 3-point range.

Curry is a proven shooter something the Mavericks desperately need. The team emphasizes 3-point attempts, but connected at a poor clip last season. The additions of Curry and Kristaps Porzingis should help them fix that issue.

The Dallas Mavericks hosted the Oklahoma City Thunder on Oct. 14. It was Dallas’ fourth of five preseason contests. The Mavs dominated the action and secured a 107-70 victory. It was not 100 percent positive, though.

Curry suffers a knee injury

Seth Curry suffered a knee contusion on Monday. He did not play in the second half.

Curry was again filling his backup two guard role. He played nine minutes while producing three points, one rebound, one assist, and one steal. Curry’s 3-pointer made fans stand up and cheer.

No word yet on the severity of the injury. It is preseason, so the team is airing on the side of caution. Fans should not expect Curry to play in the team’s final preseason game on Thursday. Keep an eye on the practice reports in the days ahead of opening night.

The Mavericks injury list continues to grow. Dwight Powell is going to miss the entire preseason with a hamstring injury. Both Jalen Brunson and Dorian Finney-Smith sat out against the Thunder on Monday evening. Now add in Curry. The Mavs need to get healthy before the Washington Wizards come to Dallas on Oct. 23.
