DALLAS (AP) — Dallas Mavericks guard Seth Curry has undergone season-ending surgery for a stress fracture in his lower left leg and is expected to resume full activities within three months.
Curry, the younger brother of Golden State star Stephen Curry, hasn’t played this season because of the injury. The 27-year-old will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. Curry had the procedure Thursday (Friday, PHL time).
The former Duke standout had his best season as a pro with the Mavericks in 2016-17, averaging 12.8 points and 2.7 assists. Curry was expected to start alongside rookie point guard Dennis Smith Jr., the No. 9 pick in the draft.
Dallas is expected to have an interest in re-signing Curry, an undrafted player who got into just two games in each of his first two seasons. He played 44 games for Sacramento the season before the Mavericks signed him.
