Anyone who is even the slightest fan of the Warriors should be aware of the reoccurring issues with Steph Curry and his unstable right ankle. During multiple occasions last year, the up and coming point guard injured that particular part of his body. Unfortunately, during some of the instances, just a simple "bad landing" sparked the frightening injuries. Ultimately, this all really poses the question of the durability of Steph Curry's right ankle. Most would consider it to be rather frail, so in order to ensure the highest well-being of it, the Warriors shut Curry down for most of the season and the man himself even went to extent of receiving surgery. Will this all pay off? I don't really think so. From what I have read, more injuries are just inevitable due to one factor, foot pressure. As of now, the way Curry lands his right foot is sort of awkward. It exerts too much pressure in a particular area, and as a result, stresses his ankle. So, there are only two solutions. Throw Curry back into rehab for an extremely long period of time to make him master a new way of walking and running (which is pretty damn difficult) or consult a foot doctor to produce a tailor made orthortic insert that can somehow shift the unwanted pressure to different areas.
As much as I wish Curry good health and for now on, an injury-free career, such can only be achieved in my imagination. It is only a matter of time before the point guard sustains another physical setback, and to the Warriors dismay, perhaps one that is a career-ender. With all this saddening information, do you think the Warriors should pursue a player to replace him? Or do you honestly believe that he will never be hurt again?
