Stephen Curry has a well-documented history of gruesome ankle injuries. As it so happens, this is the first summer since 2010 that Curry has avoided offseason surgery and rehab on his bum ankles, which has helped him tremendously this summer.

Instead of sitting out major time during the summer and then trying to catch up, Curry has had the freedom to rest his body and start getting back into shape for training camp.

It’s been great — mentally more so than physically. I can’t understate how good it feels to not have to do rehab. Just not having to grind through the strenuous process. I feel like I’ve been able to pace myself this summer so I can be in top physical shape for training camp.

It’s just the fact I could do it a month after the season was over. I could get back into my routine. I didn’t have to sit out two-and-a-half months without touching a ball. I can take my workout to new levels because I set that foundation early, instead of playing catch-up in the month of August.

The fact that Steph is in good spirits and, most importantly, healthy, is a great sign for the Warriors. Curry was one of the most exciting players in the league last season and if he can build upon that the Warriors could have something special in the works.
