More Rumors in this Storyline
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.
Earl K. Sneed: Rick Carlisle essentially confirms Seth Curry will miss the remainder of the season with surgery on his left tibia. “I’m disappointed for Seth. You know, this was a big year for him, and he did great things last year. We certainly wish him the best.”
Seth Curry, 27, has yet to play in a Mavericks season that is 38 games old, due to a stress reaction in his left leg. It is a foregone conclusion he won’t be ready in time for the Mavs’ only game in Charlotte this season, Jan. 10 at Spectrum Center. “It’s very, very frustrating,” Curry told the Observer Dec. 29, following the Mavs’ road victory over the Pelicans. “I knew I would have a big role coming into the season. I prepared myself all summer for this season. It’s a huge setback, obviously, but I just have to attack my rehab with what I can do to help myself get back.”
Seth Curry, who played high school ball at Charlotte Christian, had every expectation this was a season when he’d get abundant playing time. “The doctors just say, ‘Let it heal,’ and the more activity I have, the slower (recovery) will be,” Curry said. “So I’ve just got to try to be smart about being off of it, and not coming back too early. “Not 50 percent, not 75 percent, nothing like that. Get it right.”
Eddie Sefko: Rick Carlisle on injured Mavericks like Seth Curry, Dorian Finney-Smith, Josh McRoberts: “We’re still hoping to get some guys back at some point. We’re just not sure what month. I’ve been wrong so far. Not December.”
Coach Rick Carlisle said Friday evening Seth Curry who has yet to play this season because of a leg injury won’t see game action until at least January. Curry said earlier this week that he’s been waiting to go through individual drills without having setbacks in the following days.
“Not really,” Curry said before Tuesday’s game. “It’s the same thing. I’m just trying to wait it out and see if it’s going to heal or not. I’ve just got to give it some time. It’s like a couple week by couple week situation. It’s a tricky situation.”
And if it doesn’t heal? “There’s a chance, yeah,” he said of the possibility of surgery at some point. “The path I’m on right now, the MRI shows it’s gotten a little better. But there’s a chance (he could need a procedure). It’s a tricky situation and hard for me to say. It’s very frustrating. Recovery-wise, I get out there and work out and feel OK, and it’ll bother me the next day.”
Earl K. Sneed: Seth Curry, Dorian Finney-Smith and Josh McRoberts remain out for the @Dallas Mavericks today vs. the Clippers. Salah Mejri was originally listed as questionable, but Rick Carlisle says he will play. #DALvsLAC
“Seth’s not close,” he said. “Today’s the 28th. So let’s say Monday, the 11th. He ain’t playing ’til then.” And maybe not immediately after that. This weekend will mark the eight-week point since the shooting guard suffered a stress reaction in his left tibia in a preseason game. By Dec. 11, he will have missed the first 27 games of the season.
He said Saturday night that Seth Curry, who has been sidelined since early October with a stress reaction in his left leg, won’t be playing until sometime in December. “Which is no outrageous statement, at this point,” Carlisle said.
The Mavericks will have some time for practice in the next 10 days with only four games scheduled. But if Curry isn’t ready, it could be after the three-game trip to Boston, Milwaukee and Minnesota that starts Dec. 6 before he plays. “But there’s light at the end of the tunnel there,” Carlisle said. “But there’s no timetable. There’s no saying: hey, he’s going to play against this team on this date, or a target date. We’re just not there yet.”
Eddie Sefko: Rick Carlisle confirmed what we’ve all thought. Seth Curry won’t play til at least early December. But said there is light at end of tunnel.

Eddie Sefko: Seth Curry to miss another week. Per Rick CARLISLE.
Seth Curry on stress reaction in his left tibia: “We’re looking at getting off it for this week, week and a half and seeing how it progresses from there. There’s not really an exact timeframe when I could be back. It could be a week, could not.”
Mike Fisher: #Mavs Carlisle on #SethCurry tibia injury: ‘We’re going to keep him our for a week, and we’ll see where things are.’
Seth Curry isn’t overly concerned about his left shoulder injury which forced him to sit out eight of this season’s final 10 games. However, Curry didn’t rule out the possibility of surgery being used to rectify the situation. “It still is a possibility, but I don’t think it’s necessary at this point,” Curry said of surgery. “I think I’m going to rehab and get it stronger, get it better. “I feel pretty good right now.”
Eddie Sefko: Seth Curry (shoulder) has been ruled out of the final three games of the season, per Rick Carlisle.
Earl K. Sneed: Per @MavsPR, Seth Curry (left shoulder injury) is out against Phoenix. It’s his 4th straight missed game. #DALatPHX
With starting point guard Seth Curry ailing in recent days and officially out for the rest of the season because of a shoulder ailment, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has said on multiple occasions over the past week that the club would be looking to add “a pass-first point guard” before playing out the season’s final five days. People within the organization, sources tell ESPN, say he has been referring to Romo.

Nick Friedell: Thibs wanted no part of giving a timeframe on Butler’s absence but Taj offered this observation. At a minimum it appears as if Butler will miss multiple weeks. Taj: “The doctors are saying some good things so we’ll see in a few weeks maybe.”
KC Johnson: Taj Gibson on Jimmy Butler: “He was talking so much trash on the plane, you didn’t even really think he was hurt. He came in today making jokes, being his normal self. I think he’s fine mentally.”
Darren Wolfson: Jimmy Butler is a real mensch. He’s spending time with a young man who’s battling health hurdles. A torn meniscus wouldn’t keep Jimmy from such a commitment (photo from @jbrioschi). #Twolves #AllEyesNorth
