ANDREW BOGUT AND STEPHEN CURRY GO THROUGH SURGERY
Wed, 25 Apr 2012 02:11 PM EDT

Stephen Curry and Andrew Bogut are each heading for another surgery on their injured ankles, casting a shadow over the way ahead for Golden State’s new franchise tandem. Odds

GM Larry Riley related that arthroscopic surgery on Curry’s tough right ankle will be “exploratory” to work out if a more serious operation is needed once again. He called the scope on Bogut’s fractured left ankle to clean up loose particles “routine” and ruled out any likelihood the 7-foot center would play for Australia’s Olympic team this summer. Scores

Curry had surgery to repair a tendon in his ankle last summer. He repeatedly sprained the ankle this season while playing only 26 games, the last coming against Dallas on March 10.

“It’s a very important part of the process,” Golden State coach Mark Jackson said. “The main thing is to have those men at 100 %, and if this is the part that has to be done today, and then put them in that position and so be it. I’m happy that we’re getting nearer to that point.”

Jackson would not give a diary for either player’s predicted recovery.

Curry said he could do whatever’s necessary to avoid another surgery. After consulting with at least 3 different doctors, Riley claimed Curry, his family, representative and the team agreed it was best for the franchise point guard and former Davidson star to go back under the knife.

“The MRIs are conclusive to a certain level, and not entirely conclusive,” Riley asserted. “The guidance of the doctors is we’re going to know best if we do the scope and take a look at it and see whether anything should be done from there.”

Bogut’s operation seems much less significant.

Riley declared there “appears to be some small, tiny loose particles and even presumably some scar tissue, which can often be cleaned out with a scope.”

Bogut, acquired in a trade that sent leading scorer Monta Ellis to Milwaukee on March 13, may be back to basketball activities as quickly as 6 weeks.

Both operations will be done by Doctor Richard Ferkel in the Los Angeles suburb of Van Nuys. At least one particular member of the Warriors medical team will be concerned in the surgery process, the team claimed.

Curry averaged career lows of 14.7 points, 5.3 assists and 3.4 rebounds. Selected 7th overall in 2009 by Golden State, his career has been blended with fantastic scoring efforts and confounding injuries on an ankle no-one can appear to fix.

He’s ending the 3rd season of his 4-year rookie offer, and Golden State can sign Curry to an extension by Oct. 31. Riley remained mum on those talks, nevertheless, it seems improbable either side would do an agreement before next season with the ongoing injury raising concerns for Golden State and driving down Curry’s worth.

Bogut’s career has followed a similar path.

The 2005 No. 1 overall pick missed the end of the 2009-10 season when he dislocated his right elbow, sprained his right wrist and broke his right hand in a hard fall to the floor. The injury bothered him for most of last season. He additionally missed major time with an injured lower back in the 2008-09 season.
