After taking a left ankle arthroscopic surgery in May before the 2022 offseason, Seth Curry remains questioning when he can fully participate for the Brooklyn Nets.
Though he is being kept out yet from being in full team activities and five-on-five scrimmages, the sharpshooting guard is keeping that faith in his step-by-step process.
“Getting closer every day,” Curry said about his recovery, via New York Post’s Brian Lewis. “Doing a little bit more and more every day. I’m trying to be smart about it. Pass all the tests I need to pass and get ready to go, and stay mentally engaged at the same time to be ready for the season.
“[I’m doing] full individual workouts … a bit of everything except playing five-on-five. That’s pretty much where I’m at.”
Meanwhile, head coach Steve Nash is also uncertain of Curry’s timetable.
“He’s doing quite a dynamic individual workout. A little bit against coaches, but no real contact against players,” Nash said. “It’s more like phony defense by coaches, how’s that?”
As such, he is looking forward to the veteran to potentially make a return in the Nets’ preseason closing game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
“That’d be ideal. Can’t guarantee it. Whenever he’s ready, he’ll be ready. To be determined,” Nash said. “We’ve got to monitor his progress every day and see how it progresses.”
The Nets will open their preseason in an Eastern Conference bout with Philadelphia 76ers this Monday.
