The NBA is working through the murky waters that are the global COVID pandemic as it looks to complete the season safely. Since this season isn’t being played in a bubble environment that was used to finish the 2019-20 season, navigating this season has been more complicated. Sharpshooter Seth Curry tested positive for COVID on Jan. 7, and he missed seven games before returning on Jan. 22.
In the six games since he has returned, he’s shooting 31.8% from deep and he’s averaging 9.8 points. “Little nagging injuries here and there, I’ve been banged up a little bit. Some of the big remnants is also just trying to get my energy all the way back. Some days I feel good; some days I’m just sluggish, and it’s like I got to take a nap all day so it’s weird, but I’m grateful to be able to get up and get on the court every day and play.”
That is understandable considering how serious the virus is and how it can affect one’s energy.
