In an attempt to speed up his return to the Golden State Warriors’ lineup, reigning NBA Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry underwent platelet-rich plasma treatment on the right knee he sprained during the first round of the 2016 NBA playoffs, according to Diamond Leung of the Bay Area News Group:
PRP, which is said to promote healing, was given to Curry on the second day of his recovery process, he said.
Curry could be nearing a return to basketball activities nine days after suffering a Grade 1 MCL sprain.
Warriors general manager Bob Myers declined to comment on whether or not Curry had undergone PRP therapy during a Tuesday interview on 95.7 The Game.
“Did you ask him? Did you guys ask him? I’m not answering your question,” he joked. “You’ve got to ask him, man. I know the answer to your question, but it’s not my body and it’s not me.”
Curry, however, confirmed it himself on Tuesday, before the Warriors’ come-from-behind Game 2 win over the Portland Trail Blazers.
