Point guard Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors is going to spend much of the offseason trying to fix up his often-injured ankles. Curry, who has proven that he's a capable shooter and can also distribute the ball, only played in 26 games last season. He averaged nearly 15 points and five assists a game for a Warriors team that was 23-43 and missed

the National Basketball Association playoffs for the fifth year in a row. The Warriors haven't made the NBA playoffs since 2007; they haven't had a winning record since the 2007-08 season.
In turn, because of his ankle problems last season, the Warriors are skittish about signing Curry this offseason to a massive contract extension trying to lock him down. Despite his ankle problems last season, Curry, is averaging 17.5 points-per-game, he's shooting 47% from the floor, 44% from the three-point line and 91% from the free-throw line in three seasons with the Warriors. Curry was also a two-time All-America, and a two-time Southern Conference Player of the Year. Curry led Davidson College to the Final Four in 2008. He was taken by Golden State in the first round of the NBA Draft with the seventh choice in 2009.
