Without Curry (and Klay Thompson), the Warriors have been the worst team in the NBA at 12-45.
The return for Steph Curry will be a welcome sight for Golden State fans, but there may be lingering effects from the injury. “This was a serious one (the broken hand injury) that had a lot of nuances to it with the two surgeries and the nerve damage and stuff I’m still dealing with,” Curry said via Anthony Slater of The Athletic. “Everything is new. If it was an ankle thing, I’d tell you everything every step of the way.” While a broken hand is not an earth-shattering injury, every injury has slight variations. The question will be if Curry can adjust to his hands feeling a little differently.
“I’m getting used to what the new normal is,” Curry continued via The Athletic. “It definitely feels different than the right (hand). But you try to get to the point when you’re playing basketball, you don’t think about it — whether it feels all the way same or not, it doesn’t really matter, as long as I’m not worried about the things I’m trying to do, the strength part of it and how it bounces back the next day after pushing it in contact stuff.”
