Surgery for Warriors PG Stephen Curry Deemed Successful

UPDATE: Warriors announced surgery was successful Wednesday night. According to the team’s release, Curry is expected to return to on-court basketball activities in 3 to 4 months.

Warriors point guard Stephen Curry underwent successful surgery on his right ankle Wednesday in Van Nuys, according to a source with knowledge of Curry’s surgery. The exploratory arthroscopic surgery, performed by Dr. Richard Ferkle, revealed no structural damage.

Dr. Ferkle just cleaned out scar tissue and a few bone spurs. No torn ligaments and the previous surgery — performed last May by OrthoCarolina specialist Dr. Bob Anderson in Charlotte — held up.

Warriors team doctors and specialists are conferring with Ferkle about a rehabilitation plan. A timetable is not yet known, but the results of the surgery were received as good news.
