ESPN.com news services
OAKLAND, Calif. -- A trio of surgeries for Golden State's top starters is off to a positive start.
Stephen Curry's arthroscopic surgery Wednesday on his troublesome right ankle "revealed a stable ankle with no structural damage." The Warriors said the operation performed by Dr. Richard Ferkel in Southern California "consisted of cleaning out loose debris and scar tissue."
Curry is expected to resume basketball activities in three to four months. Golden State hopes its franchise point guard can avoid another more serious surgery and be ready for fall's training camp.
Forward David Lee will have surgery Thursday in Philadelphia to repair a torn abdominal muscle. Center Andrew Bogut is scheduled to have arthroscopic surgery on his fractured left ankle Friday in the Los Angeles area.
Lee's procedure will be performed by Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia. Lee's recovery time to resume basketball activities will be determined following surgery.
He has missed seven straight games after an MRI exam on April 13 revealed a strained groin and stress reaction. The former New York Knicks forward, in his second season with the Warriors, averaged 20.1 points and 9.6 rebounds this year.
