NEW YORK: Reigning NBA Finals MVP Stephen Curry will plot out a timeline for his return from a left shoulder injury in the new year. Curry suffered a shoulder subluxation in last Wednesday’s 125-119 loss to the Indiana Pacers, with initial reports stating he would miss a “few weeks.”


The 34-year-old point guard has avoided surgery and is hopeful of plotting out his return soon.


“This is an interesting one just because I haven’t had an injury like this on the shoulder, so it’s a wait and see approach,” Curry said on the Warriors’ bench during NBA on TNT’s coverage of the game with the New York Knicks on Tuesday.


“I’m still in the early healing process, so I’m nowhere near picking up a basketball yet. It’ll be a few weeks. Maybe we’ll get to the new year and I’ll start to key in on a timeline from there.”


The Warriors are 15-16 overall, sitting 11th in the Western Conference, coming into Tuesday’s road game. Golden State have a 3-14road record this season.


Curry is leading the NBA this season in three-pointers made, with 5.0per game. The four-time NBA champion is averaging 30 points shooting at 50% with 6.6 rebounds and 6.8 assists this season. — dpa
