Nets’ Seth Curry Undergoes Ankle Surgery

Nets guard Seth Curry underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle today, the team announced in a press release. He’s expected to make a full recovery prior to next season’s training camp.

Curry had been dealing with pain in his ankle since January, a month before he was sent to Brooklyn as part of the blockbuster James Harden/Ben Simmons trade.

“I was dealing with it probably a month before the trade. It’s been a while. It’s something I’m just going to have to manage and deal with until the offseason,” Curry said in March. “It’s not something that’s going to go away. So as long as it’s not getting worse, I should be good.”

He re-injured the ankle a couple days later and it continued to bother him for the remainder of the season. At the end of March, Curry was optimistic he’d be able to avoid surgery, but obviously it turned out to be necessary.

In 64 games for Philadelphia and Brooklyn this season, Curry averaged 15.0 points, 3.1 rebounds and 3.6 assists on .487/.422/.872 shooting. He’s one of the top shooters in the league, holding a career three-point percentage of 43.9%.

Curry, 31, has one year remaining on his contract. He’ll earn $8,496,653 in 2023/23.
