'We would still love to bring him back': Despite season-ending surgery, Mavs still interested in retaining Seth Curry

Dallas Sports News—February 6, 2018

Dallas Sports News reported that Dallas Mavericks’ Seth Curry will undergo surgery to treat a stress reaction in his left tibia.

HSS sports medicine surgeon Joshua S. Dines, MD, who did not treat Curry, explained that a stress reaction occurs when repeated movements cause stress on a bone and can be a precursor to a fracture.
