Curry’s personal trainer Brandon Payne went on NBC Sports NBA Insider Tom Haberstroh’s “The Habershow Podcast” and discussed a number of things, from why Steph doesn’t like running a lot of high pick-and-rolls to the timetable for Curry’s return. Since the injury is to Curry’s hand and not an area where injuries are more common (i.e. ankle, knee), Payne is unsure when Curry will be able to return to the court. “I know he wants to,” Payne told Haberstroh of Curry returning this season. “It’s all going to depend on how this rehab process plays out. It’s three months to reevaluation and then at that point, we’ll have a better idea of the timeline and what he can and can’t do. Those first few weeks are going to be critical in just how the movement comes back in the wrist and how the hand responds to the activity.”

Will Barton on being traded by Nuggets: It was a shock but not too much of a shock

“It was just like a shock, but not too much of a shock,” Will Barton said when asked his reaction to the trade. “It was a shock in that, obviously, I had been there eight years, did so much there together, so it’s always shocking when you’ve been somewhere for so long and you’re moving on. But, at the same time, I embraced it, I’m welcoming a new chapter.”
